Does anyone know if our buyout window from the Fraser signing has closed? I think it should have been up yesterday, but I'm not sure if weekends count. Does anyone know?


I'm pretty sure we didn't meet the requirements for even having a second buyout window.

I hope not, I really hope this ends soon.. But at least the end is in sight. Will there any updates that we can count as truth or will it be more Єklund (2.3% accurate) crap for 48hrs?

Everything seems to tight lipped on this...think the NHL doesn't want to people to pay attention to this so they are having everyone be really quiet?

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Nah the NHL isn't controlling the news flow on this. For all the parties concerned it is the equivalent of a court case. (Not an actual court case) But no one wants to risk saying the wrong thing to the media. We won't have ANY news on this until Friday/Saturday.

If I didn't have Giants training camp to obsessively follow this week, I would honestly go insane.

This thread has once again fallen into the trap of talking about hockey. It sickens me how this thread has been hijacked back to Kovy.

i stand by what i said. we only had 1 player go to arbitration. you need 2, at least, among other possibilities:

ARTICLE 11
Rules and Procedures Governing Standard Player's Contract
...
11.18 Ordinary Course Buy-Outs Outside the Regular Period.

Clubs shall have the right to exercise Ordinary Course Buy-Outs outside the regular period for Ordinary Course Buy-Outs in accordance with Paragraph 13©(ii) of the SPC. Each Club shall be limited to no more than three (3) such buyouts over the term of this Agreement pursuant to Paragraph 13©(ii) of the SPC. However, in the event that a Club has only one salary arbitration hearing pursuant to Section 12.3(a) in a given League Year, such Club shall not be entitled to exercise such a buyout outside the regular period for Ordinary Course Buy-Outs. No Club shall exercise an Ordinary Course Buy-out outside the regular period for any Player earning less than $1 million.

well, you're incorrect. vinny prospal was bought out by the lightning late last summer; the lightning only had one arbitration case. as usual, the CBA is written terribly, and section 12.3(a) refers to club-elected arbitration, so i have no idea what that means. i guess it means that if you take only one of your players to arbitration, you don't get to use that to buy out other players.

That's incorrect. Fraser's case was player-elected arbitration. Teams only need one player-elected arbitration case to get the buyout window The 2 case minimum is for club-elected arbitration. I assume the point is to deter a team from taking a player to arbitration just to get the buyout window.

Damn, if the decision comes down on Friday or Saturday, I'm gonna be at Lollapalooza when it happens. Which means I probably won't find out even if someone texts me, because service will probably suck with that many people in one place.

Gonna have to find a sports bar to duck into for a bit when there's no decent bands playing I guess.
