Players May Take Saskin To Court

from the Toronto Star,
Los Angeles Kings veteran Trent Klatt and a growing group of disgruntled NHL players are considering going to court to challenge the recent hiring of players association executive director Ted Saskin, sources say. In the days since the union's 35-member executive board last Wednesday ratified Saskin's hiring during a five-hour conference call, controversy has percolated over the way the 46-year-old Saskin was hired. The chief complaints about Saskin's $2 million (U.S.) annual contract, according to executive board members who participated in last week's conference call, were that the union didn't hire a search committee to find other potential candidates to replace Bob Goodenow and that Saskin's deal was ratified over the phone and without a secret ballot, as required by the union's constitution. "Ted should put his hat in the ring, but we do need to have a search committee," Maple Leafs forward Tie Domi said.
