Maybe we are reading into it too much, but I do find it strange the league went with ties to Jersey. You would think it would be someone from a neutral area. Especially since this decision will have a big effect on the Devils, as well as Newark. Kovy = More ticket sales.
If he does accept the contract I see other teams fans crying foul and saying his roots had something to do with the decision.


the guy has been an arbitrator for the NHL for years. where he comes from has nothing to do with it. it's entirely possible that he is not even a hockey fan, as he is 67 years old and grew up in new jersey in the 1950s.

i think if we all wear our tinfoil hats it will go okay.

give me a break, this guy being from new jersey means absolutely nothing. he's been a sports arbitrator for years. he ruled against the rangers in 2008. he ruled that gomez should be paid 5 million a season in 2006.

Right. I'm sure this guy takes his profession seriously. It doesn't matter who the hell he's a fan of or where he grew up.

This guy doesn't seem to rule in favor of the player/team much...

This makes absolutely zero sense. Arbitrations are usually Player vs. Team.

HELL NO!!!!

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

This from Brooks NY Post:

http://www.nypost.co...9DXOCM2puOi9J/0

NHL trying to sidestep CBA
Though this is the first circumvention charge filed since the lockout, this is not the first time the league has brought larger collective bargaining issues into an arbitration hearing. This case bears striking similarity to the 2003 case in which the NHL claimed signing bonuses to Joe Sakic, Rob Blake and Pierre Turgeon constituted illegal lockout protection and therefore, circumvention.

Suddenly, though, the NHL had problems with the Sakic, Blake and Turgeon contracts. The testimony given by Bill Daly, then the league's senior VP and now its deputy commissioner, under questioning from arbitrator Joan Parker, is instructive and on point as it relates to the Kovalchuk issue.

Parker asked Daly what standard the league applied to determine whether a signing bonus would be considered illegal.

"The standard is . . . we have an internal discussion about it, that there's an intent on behalf of the contracting parties to guarantee a part of the contract. And the standard we have been applying is a significant part of the contract for a potential [2004-05] work stoppage," Daly said.

"It's a materiality test. . . . There are a number of different [contract/signing bonus] structures we've seen. When it's generally reasonable we have registered contracts in that scenario. When it's clear on its face that the parties were expressly attempting to essentially guarantee part of the contract during a work stoppage, at least in our mind, we have rejected the contracts."

Or, as arbitrator Parker wrote in June 2003: "The difficulty Daly had in articulating the standard by which the League challenged the Blake, Sakic and Turgeon [contracts] is troublesome, particularly because several provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement suggest that Clubs and players have substantial flexibility to negotiate compensation packages as they wish."

I am sure the NHLPA will bring up this case from 2003, then.

Everything in those 2003 contracts were legal as per every WRITTEN clause with defined explanation in the CBA.
