Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Montreal Gazette,
Sources tell The Gazette that the Tennessee law firm Kay, Griffin, Enkema & Colbert will release a statement early Tuesday morning from former NHL players Chris Nilan, Jim Thomson and Stu Grimson indicating the players are not satisfied with Don Cherry’s remarks Saturday night and making clear that they expect a full apology from the CBC commentator.
Update October 11, 2:43 pm ET: Statement from the lawyers:
“Mr. Cherry’s comments were more than inappropriate; they were baseless and slanderous,” the statement said. “Furthermore, Mr. Cherry’s subsequent attempt to qualify his comments on (Saturday) Oct. 8, 2011, was entirely ineffectual.
“Mr. Cherry’s conduct throughout has demonstrated a complete lack of decency.”
The notice did not specify what further action the former hockey players might take nor did it offer a timeline.
