Check again.. TG now reporting it will start Wednesday



Correct Colin. The Kovalchuk hearing will begin on Wednesday and the decision will be made on either Friday or Saturday. Sooner the better so Kovy can get ready to play in NJ with his team mates.

Kovalchuk hearing to begin Wednesday in Boston (site and day confirmed)

http://blogs.northje...sday_in_boston/

The hearing to decide the grievance about Ilya Kovalchuk’s rejected contract will definitely begin Wednesday in Boston.

But I have confirmed that the hearing will definitely begin Wednesday and conclude Thursday. A ruling is expected Friday or Saturday.

I'm waiting for him to make good on this board for things he said he would like 200+ pages ago which obviously is not coming any time soon.

meh, I'm just happy they settled on an arbitrator already. That coulda sucked for a while!


She did call Kovy staying in the NHL...but what else did she get right?

She also reported it would be a 17 year deal, and top 100M

pretty sure she also placed a collect call to LL to warn him Buttman would try to shoot the deal down. Posted Image

o yea. Wow, MamaChuk can't keep her mouth shut. She better find a way to do so before someone gets the smart idea to ask her where the rest of the spies are.

someone tell her not to give away any secrets to other teams like a list of kovy's fears and address written on the back of an old school picture.

I read the arcticle on the arbitrator the other day and the only rulling for the NHL that was mentioned went in the leagues favor. Has anyone else seen any of his other rulings?

There's been a lot of his rulings talked about on this board. His most notorious decisions was his anti-Terrell Owens call. But in general he's all over the board. He's never really had a case like this.

Same, as much i hate to think it or say it. I'm going on the gut feeling that cock blocker is going to rule on the intent of the contract.

I feel like Kovalchuk being there will actually be a good thing.. My assumption is the NHLPA will call him to testify (I believe they can do this and it's not the arbitrator who decides which ppl testify), and they will ask him if he's 100% positive he intends to play out the contract.. Kovy will say yes and the NHL will have little precedent to say he won't play it out.. That's my personal feeling on it

Question to the board: Is the arbitration hearing closed to the media/general public? Just curious if there is anyway TG gets to sit in that hearing live. I'm assuming not but it would be cool if he did as that should be a very interesting spectacle.

I believe they are closed to anyone who is not directly involved in the case
