If there is a lockout maybe some folks will create a startup hockey league like Al Bundy did when baseball went on strike.

I am going to drink 3 beers in honor of Daneyko for this.

We had this idea a few pages ago. We are going to call it Xtreme Hockey League and it will be run by the WWE. This cannot fail!

who said there would be basketball. they're due to go a year earlier. maybe if the NHL finds a way to violate the CBA, the PA can call a strike in a tit for tat move and then EVERYONE will have a work stoppage at once.

Have the pro basketball players play hockey and have the pro hockey players play basketball.

20 days, 19 hours and eight minutes, apparently.

(Thread merging prevented a "PAGE 300! WOOOOO!" moment. I figured this was as close as I would get.)

At this rate, 444 will be up soon. Maybe even get to 3030, though that's not a retired number yet.

Correct and I think this is a bad example that some people are using here of Bettman's ineptness. A better example is what is going on in Phoenix.

After the Hossa deal the NHL should of just said "Alright that was the last loophole contract". Instead now they started a unnecessarily fight. Smart thing to do, let Kovy deal through then say no more instead of say no when one of these contracts comes up. :argh:

smart thing to do would have been to structure the Kovalchuk deal 100% the same way as the Hossa deal. just with more money involved, but the salary scale and years exactly the same, maybe add a year or two but balance it out fairly.

both sides were dumb. it would be hilarious if they lost Kovalchuk because of poor contract structure after the dog and pony show. it would obliterate what would have been otherwise a good offseason, if they had not signed Kovalchuk at all.

Hard to do that when the CBA allows it and you just set more precedents until they finally say stop. IMO, after last season with Pronger and Hossa, they should have just let it go until the next round of CBA negotiations.

However, as it has been said on this board that would have weakened their position for the next negotiation. It's entirely possible that if this does go to the arbitrator and if the NHLPA wins then it would make for some fierce negotiations in 2012.

Let me explain this nice and slowly...

Now, a coherent response is welcome. I don't know how to respond to smiley faces and name calling.

Ugh what a mess. Looks like this is heading to arbitration. I really hope Lou can still proceed with the moves necessary to clear up the cap space, etc. If he waits until the final decision, it could be too late.

Well there's your only reason Buttman needed to veto the contract right there.

because they'd save everyone involved a lot of trouble if they acquiesced.

Mainly us.

If this were the political forum I'd call that a real non-American, Democratic way of doing things.

this is still fvcking team goddamnit

That's what I thought too, that a new deal could be created to avoid the arbitration...in fact the rule I posted seems to suggest it. But I agree with you, that since I haven't heard any sportswriters mention the clause I posted it doesn't apply for some reason.

But doing so does say, "OK WE agree that the first contract was a farse and not legal" By sticking by the 17 yr deal they are saying it is legit and should stick.

I feel like this is a situation where the system works. In order to sign Kovalchuk for a reasonable cap hit, the team had to commit to him long term,

That right there should be allowed and rewarded. The team is taking a risk yoking themselves to ANYONE long term. There is a risk to that.

If the NHL loses then everyone knows the NHL has no bullets left to fire. You don't waste your last bullet on a shot across the bow, IMO.

Unless you are trying to scare a sh!tload of muggers (GM's) with only one bullet. dontknow.gif

it's in "'s. I have no idea what their real intention was, to get concessions, or if they would have moved the team had they lost and couldn't get what they'd want.

but they were definately there.
