Healy Defends His Credibility

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Healy, a former NHL goaltender and broadcast analyst who joined the NHLPA under Kelly 14 months ago, was especially critical of an internal office review that he said attacked his credibility.

The woman who conducted the review, Anne Marie Turnbull, accused Healy of misleading players regarding the role of former superstars Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux in previous union matters, Healy said.

“I would never and have not misled or told any untruths to any player. I can not [sic] sit back and continue to perform my duties when my Players’ Association co-workers unjustifiably impugn my credibility in front of the players I represent and fire shots against Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, two of the greatest players in the game, who have benefited every player in this Players’ Association,” Healy wrote in a letter to the members of the NHLPA executive board, which was obtained by ESPN.com.
