The League Gets Involved

From The Hockey News via Kukla's:

"NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Hockey News.com the league is awaiting further details before deciding whether to step in.

"'Clubs and players both should have a right to rely on the sanctity of contractual commitments, regardless of how those commitments are memorialized,' Daly said in an emailed statement. 'To our knowledge, there has been only one Standard Player's Contract executed and filed with the League, and under our CBA, that contract should be enforceable.

"'But if, after reviewing all of the relevant facts here, there has been a breach of a contractual commitment, we will certainly assist the Oilers in any way we can in seeking an appropriate remedy. We are not in a position to opine what those remedies might be at this point.'"
