Saskin Situation Won’t Go Away

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY
, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios says the NHL Players Association is trying to obstruct him and others from rallying support for their challenge to the process by which Ted Saskin was hired as executive director. "Ted is censoring the information that we want put out to the players," Chelios said. "He has made it difficult for us to communicate." Chelios' group objects that a search committee wasn't appointed to find a replacement for longtime leader Bob Goodenow, who stepped down on July 28. The vote on Saskin, Goodenow's deputy, was taken by conference call, not by secret ballot, as the union's constitution requires. Saskin reopened the vote to make it secret.
