NHLPA hasn't ruled out disclaimer of interest
By BRUCE GARRIOCH, QMI Agency
NEW YORK - This could all still end up in the hands of a judge.
While the NHL Players’ Association presented its ideas to save the season to the NHL Monday, the union hasn’t ruled out the possibility of proceeding with its disclaimer of interest by Wednesday’s 11:59 p.m. deadline.
Sources say union officials want to see how the league responds to the proposal it tabled before deciding what’s next. The executive board received permission for disclaimer by an overwhelming majority Dec. 21.
