No complaints were submitted to the NHL including the Arizona Coyotes
Craig Morgan: Larry Brooks of the New York Post composed in his Sunday column: “Slap Shots has also learned that Coyotes players filed multiple complaints with the PA during the season about sub-standard travel, lodging and logistical issues that were in violation of the collective bargaining agreement.”
Craig Morgan: NHL Deputy Commissioner: “There is no factual basis for the blurb. The only issue ever brought to my attention related to player concerns related to construction delays in connection with the completion of Mullett Arena. No other player complaints were ever brought to my attention; no grievances were filed; and no complaints were adjudicated, either formally or informally.”
Craig Morgan: An NHLPA representative stated that there are no exceptional problems versus the Arizona Coyotes and all matters have actually been fixed. This previous season there were no CBA offenses by the Coyotes.
- Larry Brooks: “I’m not engaging in a back and forth here but I did not report that the PA had filed complaints or grievances with the league, only that players had lodged complaints with the PA and that the issue would be discussed at upcoming meeting. Thanks.”
Craig Morgan: “As others have actually kept in mind, problems by groups to the NHLPA are not unusual.
Were there more with Arizona this season? Probably, provided their distinct circumstance, dipping into Mullett Arena, training at an off-site center near the Ice Den & playing 20 of their first 24 video games on the roadway.”
Craig Morgan: “I’m aware of one such complaint lodged: When AZ flew from a late start in Edmonton (a March game that went to OT) to Denver, players wanted to stay overnight in Edmonton. They were told it was not cost effective & then they got to their hotel around 5 AM. That pissed people off.”
Craig Morgan: “Of note: I’ve heard from the vast majority of agents who represent Coyotes on the regular roster this past season. None were aware, via their clients, of any infractions that rose to the level of CBA violation. The PA had reps in AZ frequently this year to monitor the situation.”
