NHLPA Ramblings

In my opinion, most NHL fans give a rats's you-know-what about the internal problems of the NHLPA, but this article sheds some light on the behind the scene incidents. from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Trent Klatt won't give up the fight until he feels justice is served. Speaking for the first time publicly since launching a campaign questioning the way Ted Saskin was elected executive director of the NHL Players Association, Klatt said the proper process was not followed. Led by Klatt, a group of more than 60 players has asked the National Labour Relations Board and the Department of Labour in the United States to investigate the practices used by NHLPA president Trevor Linden to hire Saskin to replace Bob Goodenow, who was forced to resign following the 301-day lockout. The players don't believe Linden and Saskin used the proper channels and they've hired lawyer Robert Lanza to pursue the case. "This could be resolved if (Saskin) just told the truth," Klatt said from his Minnesota home.
