TORONTO -- Wade Redden will be looking for answers, but not an end, to the NHLPA's latest crisis tomorrow night.

The Senators defenceman, along with captain Daniel Alfredsson, are members of the NHLPA interim executive that will take part in a conference call along with player representatives.

They will discuss allegations NHLPA executive director Ted Saskin and others have been looking at e-mails belonging to players opposed to Saskin's controversial hiring at the end of the 2004-05 lockout.

Saskin has denied the allegations and said there has been no illegal activity within the association.

"I don't think anything will be resolved (tomorrow night), in my humble opinion," said Redden.

"Closure is what we talked about in the summer," he added, "and the end is not in sight."

Issues within the NHLPA regarding Saskin's hiring continue to be unresolved, but Redden said the players have to do whatever it takes to straighten out their house.

"I don't think morale is real high around the (NHLPA) office over there.

"You take one or two steps back if you can take five forward, I guess that's the approach. We want to get all this taken care of as soon as possible," he said.

The NHLPA is currently undergoing an internal review.

"I guess we'll get the update again -- they've got that investigation going on, it's still in progress -- until they get some definitive answers from that, I don't know what's going to happen," said Redden.
