CHECKETTS CHECKS IN AS INTERIM MSG HEAD
Published September 27, 1994
One day after Bob Gutkowski's dismissal as the president of Madison Square Garden, his interim replacement, Dave Checketts, said his "immediate goal is to break the logjam in contract negotiations" with Rangers star center Mark Messier. But in a break from his predecessor, Checketts said he would let Rangers President/GM Neil Smith conduct the negotiations. And "in another break from Gutkowski," Checketts said he would not discuss any progress in the talks with the news media. Checketts new role "may indeed be temporary." Viacom will conduct a search for a permanent MSG president. Checketts: "I was told I would be a candidate" (Richard Sandomir, N.Y. TIMES, 9/22). Checketts, on the possible resale of the Knicks and Rangers: "I have been told by Cablevision/ITT executives that the teams are not going to be resold" (N.Y. POST, 9/22).
