Friends of former L.A. Kings Owner Bruce McNall are soliciting donations to raise money to make sure "strong supporting statements" are delivered before a judge sentences him. The letter is signed by Harold Baldwin, Chair of the Penguins, and Rogie Vachon, current Kings President. In the letter to raise funds, Baldwin and Vachon write that McNall does not have "funds for the legal expenses incurred during this very difficult time." Jim Proudfoot writes that "anybody who owns an NHL club is in McNall's debt." He helped make hockey popular in CA with the success of the Kings, and "a lot of people made a lot of money as a result of McNall's vision" (TORONTO STAR, 3/31).
