Saskin Fails To Show For Islander Meeting

from the NY Post,
Acting NHLPA chief Ted Saskin infuriated some Islanders yesterday when he did not show up for a scheduled meeting, the Post has learned, adding kerosene to what is becoming an explosive situation. Facing mutiny from within the PA, Saskin didn't make any friends in the Islanders' dressing room and may have intensified the growing protest surrounding his replacement of former union head Bob Goodenow. A group of NHL players recently filed complaints with the NLRB for what they believe was an improper signing of Saskin to a six-year contract that will reportedly pay him $2 million annually, setting off what one source said yesterday may become "a bit of a bloodbath."
