After news broke that not all Flames players would be attending the team's annual charity golf tournament, NHLPA player rep Matt Stajan has said that a number his teammates will instead be traveling to New York in a final effort to influence CBA negotiations before Saturday's deadline.
"It is unfortunate we all can't go, but, obviously, getting a new CBA is our No. 1 focus because we want to play hockey. We don't want to be locked out and have a bunch of other charity events cancelled . . . or can't attend because we're locked out," Stajan told the Calgary Herald.
