48 hours from the time the hearing ends. They are looking to hold the hearing on Monday / Tuesday, so expect a decision most likely by Thursday.


cool...thanks amberite.

does anyone know what criteria it takes for someone to be an arbitrator for these type of things?
how do they know the person has no bias...what if he's some idiot with a sean avery fathead in his game room???

Really anyone can be an arbitrator, but for something like this, I imagine it's a pretty well-seasoned labor attorney, who may or may not have a sports background.

While you never know for sure if the arbitrator is unbiased, both sides work together to find someone, which will tend to even things out. It might even be that the PA and the NHL went to the American Arbitration Association to find a candidate.

Richard Bloch it is. You may have read it here Tri.

TG reports.

Arbitrator hired, hearing scheduled for Kovalchuk grievance, ruling expected by end of next week


A hearing has been scheduled, but neither source would not reveal the identity of the arbitrator or the date, time and site of the hearing. Sportsnet in Canada has indentified the arbitrator as Richard Bloch, who has heard CBA-related grievances for the NHL and NHLPA before and is based in Washington.

Both sources said the matter will be settled by the end of next week—Friday or Saturday. It appears the hearing will begin on Wednesday. It is expected to take two days and a ruling would be due within 48 hours of its conclusion.


Those who possibly would attend the hearing—in addition to representatives from the NHL and the NHLPA and the system arbitrator - include Kovalchuk, his agent, Jay Grossman, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello and, possibly, team owner Jeff Vanderbeek.

The player is not required to attend the hearing and Kovalchuk planned to return to Russia to begin working out with his trainer there to get ready for the season. so it’s possible he won’t be there.

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.


Game on.

Good luck from the other side, guys.

I'll be watching intently.

In honor of one of the greatest dmen to ever play the game, I remain to this day and forever after a lifetime member of the Scott Stevens Fan Club:

"If you ever had to describe what a Devil player would be," said Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello, "the name would be Scott Stevens."

"He was just huge," Devils left wing Patrik Elias said of walking into training camp the first time in 1995. "I was afraid of him. You had a 170-pound guy coming here and he was 220, 225 with these paws like a bear. I was pretty intimidated the first few years. I'm happy he was on my side the whole time."

Well if Kovalchuk is heading off to Russia next week I can only see it as good news. I'm not sure he'd be be doing that if there was a possibility he would have to negotiate a contract with another team should the arbitrator decide against them.

Of course, it also puts him much closer to the KHL should things go sour :whistling:

He probably wants to get away from all of this mess. Look at the size of this thread. Imagine what he is going through with his family. I don't blame him wanting to get away and clear his head by training

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."
