And then this thread will be a ghost town for the weekend pretty much. But Monday, with me down the shore, away from a computer, means a decision will be made.

Eh, Kovy doesn't tell jokes, he just leaves out articles of speech. I got no problem with that - any real man does.

Hey, I like short and to the point. Lebron goes on for an hour explaining why he chose the Heat...Kovy simply states "This is team".

I still love the summer, even though our "hockey summers" have been entirely too long as of late. 2011 better end differently for this team!

Love the summer - it's too windy to BBQ in January, even when you get the weather. Not that it stops me mind you, but it's still too windy.

I think the thread is just a nice place to stop by, check in and see what randomness has happened and stumble across rumors, news and weirdness.

I noticed last week that now that I am no longer in school, summer sucks balls and the fall is gonna kick ass. Without school happening, summer and fall are the same except that instead of sunburn, sweating like crazy, and higher electricity bills from using the A/C, we will have hockey, football, and baseball playoffs. Sounds like a good trade to me.

You don't care for the beach and scantily clad women? I will always love Jersey summers. There is nothing like summer concerts....and then when it is over I have hockey and football to console me....

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but ESPN cites a very interesting clause in the CBA which would basically guarantee a win to the Devils in this case:

"Article 26.3(i): Any act, conduct or activity that is permitted by this agreement shall not be a circumvention."

Has this been discussed before?

yeah but that's only true if the arbitrator interprets it that way. he/she could easily say it's not permitted by the agreement. That's the problem with arbitrators, they're not bona-fide judges, so they can make a wild decision that seems completely different than the normal man's interpretation of the situation.

The arbitrator's job is to rule if the laws of the salary cap have been broken. Since the CBA defines the rules of the salary cap, if the CBA states that as long as a contract adheres to its rules, it cannot be circumvention, then it's the arbitrator's job to rule that way.

Legion is right. It's all at the discretion of the arbitrator. No matter what the CBA says it can be interpreted in different ways.

Hockey fact 6435: Hockey fans hibernate for the summer.

:doh1: It's also at the discretion of any judge in any courtroom in the US to make his own judgment. At the end of the day, though, the judge still has a set of laws that direct his judgments. Same thing with the arbitrator when he interprets the CBA to make his final judgment.

Yes there are specific rules the arbitrator needs to go by when making his judgement. But my point is...well you said it yourself: "Same thing with the arbitrator when he interprets the CBA to make his final judgment."

There are different ways to interpret each article. So there is no way to tell how the arbitrator will interpret any given part of the CBA.

A big difference is that a judge is answerable to an appellate court, an arbitrator is not.

I'm trying to make you understand that while a judge in a legal court of law also makes interpretations, on the whole, judges are pretty predictable in their judgments because they are following a written set of guidelines. Same thing with the arbitrator.

interrupting the now terminal session of begging the question, here's some interesting articles that mention ilya kovalchuk's shooting ability:

http://www.behindthenethockey.com/2010/7/30/1594614/where-players-spend-their-time-in

Very interesting to say the least. Definitely makes a case for what a phenomenal talent he is.

TGfireandice: Source: a system arbitrator has been agreed upon and a day/site for the Kovalchuk arbitration has been set. Don't know either, yet.

Here we go.
