Looks like Goodenow has decided he has done enough damage. He stepped down from the Players Union after the current labor deal was ratified. Goodenow had been with the NHLPA for 15 years. Although he as done many good things for the players while with the NHLPA, nothing will be remember except for the loss of the 04-05 NHL season.
 

Associated Press
TORONTO - Bob Goodenow is stepping down as head of the NHL Players' Association, less than a week after the union and league approved a new labor deal to end a lockout that wiped out the entire 2004-05 season.

Goodenow had three years left on his contract. But many observers thought he was not thrilled by the labor pact, which included a salary cap.

"With the conclusion of the negotiations and the ratification of the new agreement, the parties concur that this is an appropriate action for the future," Goodenow said in a statement Thursday.

Too bad he couldn't take Betman with him.

No kidding. I hope that when the NHL gets going again this year, Bettman will either be relieved of his duties or steps down.
