Saskin and Linden in Court?

According to TSN, Ted Saskin and Trevor Linden will have to go in court to defend their positions regarding a couple of issues. Chris Chelios and Dwayne Roloson are among players who will "ask the court to remove Saskin as executive director because they alledge he has repeatedly violated the Association's Constitution along with Linden and other union members, "thus infringing upon the democratic rights of the players that the union represents," according to a release from the rebel group. They say Saskin was improperly elected, he misrepresented salary figures during negotiations, and he illegally diverted tens of millions of dollars in union funds for his own benefit."

Latrappe's take: I don't know about the "illegally inverted" money thing but that's a serious allegation. I wish the players had something to back them up regarding that case. That said, some players were absolutely furious about the new CBA and that's, probably, the consequence of it.

Matt's take: I don't really have much to say on this, since I am not familiar with all this. But, as Latrappe said, these are serious allegations, and things could turn out ugly.
