New Kovy Update ("As the Kovy Turns")

TG says decision due Monday at the latest, I guess Friday is out?

My guess would be that Bloch takes all the time he has. But then again, who knows?

Well, if it's Monday @ the latest, one could presume Friday @ the earliest, I would think

So since it's over, how long until insider sources start telling us the decision...before it's actually been made?

according to one source, kovalchuk signed a 7 year contract on july 6, so this never actually happened.

I hope this isn't dragged out over the weekend. I would love an announcement around lunch tomorrow that the Kovy contract is VALID!

TG says alot of things. I do think time will be taken, though. It's not like the arbitrator is going to run back to his hotel and start writing an opinion immediately, on one of those little notepads you get in the room.

FYI TG is probably one of the most reliable sources on devils rumors...if not the most reliable.

yeah i wouldn't expect a decision before monday, although it's a shame that he can't give the thumbs up or thumbs down tomorrow and then deliver the written decision monday.

That's what I'm hoping for. "Unofficially" declare your decision sometime tomorrow or this weekend, then hold a press conference and what not to release your offical written statement on Monday

TG really doesn't do rumors. He just writes. He gets all the stuff from outside. No one in the organization is telling him anything other than "status quo" and "don't you worry about my cap"

TG has mentioned "sources" several times, and I don't ever know him to have been wrong when he reported something that his sources have told him. Earlier this week, when a lot of places said the hearing was to start on Tuesday, TG was willing to accept it but maintained that he heard from sources that it would start on Wednesday. Lo and behold, he was correct.

Yeah I cant see them revealing the decision until Monday .. but the maven has some interesting points of view on this.. http://www.msg.com/blogs/stan-fischler/a-pleasant-distraction-for-anguished-devils-fans-1.47727 or at least it gives me something else to think about

Of course how many of those prospects can make the big team is also partially due to the outcome of the Kovy case, our cap and who else gets traded if the contract is upheld. So then we're right back to worrying about the Kovy case :P

He mentions Saturday or Sunday as possibilities though, I was under the impression it could only be Friday or Monday cause those were 'business hours'?

thats why Bettman didnt show today, he was afraid his head would explode like in 'Scanners'

Scanners...what a classic!!!

Or like Masked Fan's avatar, though this would be far, far more disturbing.

LoL! that and sammyks avatr are my favorites.

NSFW

LoL! my cousin works for the LAPD in Hollywood...i should post this on his facebook page...:D

Bloch's probably in his motel dressed up like David Copperfield performing magic tricks in front of a mirror with an escort he found on craigslist.

can't wait for this to be over; just want to be able to go online and order my Kovalchuck Army soviet style T-Shirt Dammit!

it's not the same. :lol: Hossa's deal is a flat deal with low pay at the end. Kovalchuk's is all over the place and has minimum pay for 6 years on it. he has years where he gets paid $11.5M and has a $6M cap hit. all of Hossa's big years are $7.9M with a $5.2whatever cap hit. you really don't see the difference? a player making max or close to max money with a $6M hit? it's extremely ballsy.

if the Rangers were doing this, my god, you'd all be going nuts. funny enough I was out for dinner on the weekend and listened to a Rangers fangirl behind me go on and on and on about this for 40 minutes. felt sorry for the people at her table. let. it. go.

Again. Yes, the numbers in the contracts are different. But the idea is the same and the years are close.

Not trying to be difficult but arbitration doesn't normally happen in court. Also depending on whether or not they are using new York evidence laws or the federal rules of evidence, what is said in Arbitration is not usually admissible in a subsequent trial.

Courtroom, room, hall...whatever you want to call it.

My guess would be that Bloch takes all the time he has. But then again, who knows?

IMO he's gonna hit the beach, think it over and have his decision Sunday night. Monday morning we'll get the news.

So since it's over, how long until insider sources start telling us the decision...before it's actually been made?

I believe this is where you guys start mocking SD.
