NHLPA Discusses Events Leading To Kelly Firing

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

The NHL Players’ Association held a conference call on Monday night which consisted of the player representatives and full membership.

A source said the call wasn’t contentious at all and the group talked about the procedure and events leading up to Paul Kelly’s firing and was asked to take the discussion back to their teammates for further analysis.

No NHLPA staff, advisory board members or even ombudsman Buzz Hargrove were allowed to participate in the 2 1/2 hour meeting.

Another conference call will be held on October 4, at which point the executive board will recommend how to handle Kelly’s firing.

If the board feels Kelly was fired with just cause, then the remainder of his contract may not be honoured. If that were to happen, it’s believed Kelly would swiftly challenge this decision legally and a new fight will begin.
