Decision On Saskin Due Soon

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

It has been months since Ted Saskin was told to take a paid hike as executive director of the National Hockey League Players’ Association. Eight weeks and three days, to be precise.
Now, finally, the fate of the quasi-exiled union boss is about to be decided. This week, a conference call will be held involving Toronto lawyer Chris Paliare and the player representatives from the 30 NHL teams. Paliare was retained by the players in late March to examine Saskin’s contract and determine what course of action the players should take.
No one will go on the record or off to discuss Paliare’s recommendation for fear that one wrong word, one whispered statement could give Saskin the legal ammunition he needs to shoot back at the NHLPA.
