Start A Revolution

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Ted Saskin "dodged a bullet" when he was approved as the new executive director of the NHL Players' Association. But he's not out of the woods yet. While Saskin will make a reported $10 million (all terms US) over five years in his new contact, many members of the 'PA are concerned about what the escrow portion of the new collective bargaining agreement holds for them. While the players approved Saskin's deal 10 days ago during a heated five-hour conference call with president Trevor Linden, the word is Saskin and Co. could face a mutiny once the rank and file has to start paying into the owners' escrow account. "My feeling is Saskin could have a revolution on his hands," said a well-placed league source, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.
