Insolvency ignites dispute

Via: Toronto Globe & Mail

'The Sabres listed more than $200-million (U.S.) in debt, including $442,199 owed to the Vancouver Canucks and more than $300,000 owed to three players for deferred signing bonuses. The Canucks had no idea they were owed money and general manager Brian Burke spent yesterday trying to figure out what the money was for. A source said the debt could relate to a contract for Alexander Mogilny, who spent about 4½ seasons in Vancouver after being acquired from the Sabres in 1995.'
