Kukla's Korner Hockey

This seems oddly appropriate given the NHL hockey we're about to miss as the NHL and NHLPA argue about the money fans want to give to them: according to the Globe and Mail's Alan Maki and Don Walton, former NHL player agent Stacey McAlpine is less than Allan Walsh-honest when it comes to his clients' finances:
Ottawa Senators defenceman Chris Phillips has filed a $7.5-million lawsuit in connection with alleged shoddy investments and unauthorized real estate deals, which he blames on his former agent, who is also being sued by another NHL player, Dany Heatley.
Phillips accuses Stacey McAlpine, as well as McAlpine’s parents, Gerald and Eugenia, of breaches of contract, trust and fiduciary duty as well as conversion, fraud, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, conspiracy, oppression and unjust enrichment.
McAlpine was the player agent and financial adviser for Phillips and Heatley, who is suing for $11-million, but he is no longer on the National Hockey League Players’ Association list of certified agents. He denies the allegations in his three-page statement of defence filed last week and is countersuing Phillips for $230,000 in unpaid fees and expenses. The counterclaim describes the amount of money Phillips is seeking in damages as “excessive, false, and shameful.”
