I know the Ranger rumors are garbage and I'm really not trying to give it legs.
However, considering that Kovy's status hasn't really reverted to UFA, would attempts to contact Kovy by NY or any other team during this time constitute tampering of some sort?
I wonder if anyone could attempt to throw a wrench in the works without any repercussions.
i am pretty sure that they would, yes. obviously russia is excluded here - kovalchuk could sign a deal in russia tomorrow.
Is it at all surprising that an agent who wants to get his clients long-term deals will say that the NHL won't win this one?
yeah i mean the headline should read 'self-aggrandizing agent likes name in paper'
I don't think the upcoming CBA has as many issues as the past. Last lockout players got their salaries cut, and a cap was put in place. I don't think anything that major is going to happen. Has anyone else heard about any major issues?
the salary floor is too high, this loophole has to be closed, and the players' union is doing a lot of saber-rattling about hating the way the escrow system is set up. i think there will be a lockout but that it will not cost the entire season.
