A Bit Of The Block Report

from Liz Mullen at SportsBusiness Journal,

The executive committee of the NHLPA fired former union chief Bob Goodenow without legal authority, and it’s unclear whether a secret-ballot election of his successor, Ted Saskin, would have been upheld in court, said sources familiar with a report issued to the NHLPA membership last week.
The long-awaited report, written by Toronto lawyer Sheila Block and details of which were revealed by sources to SportsBusiness Journal, also found that Saskin “reported to Goodenow throughout negotiations” of a labor deal that ended the NHL lockout, and that also included a salary cap, which Goodenow opposed.
