KHL enters PR war
I had this note dropped into my inbox today from public relations company Ketchum Sports Marketing:
At a meeting on July 15, representatives of all KHL clubs and senior executives reached unanimous agreement to impose a moratorium on signing NHL players, with the exception of free agents.There's not a lot new there, although this does apparently come by way of the "KHL Press Service."
The KHL clubs and executives support the decisions made in a meeting on July 10 in Zurich among senior executives of the KHL, IIHF and the NHL and stated in a special Memorandum of Agreement.
The KHL is acting under the assumption that the Moratorium shall be honored by all Parties and shall be valid from July 10, 2008 until signing of the Memorandum of Agreement no later than August 1, 2008.
