the twits are slow. I figured that out already.

and just for the record, no "contract" is preapproved. how stupid do they think the league is. "here's the concepts we talked about before, in contract form!" "EXCELLENT, IT'S APPROVED!"

:lol:

NHL Deputy Commish Bill Daly confirms that the Devils have submitted a new Kovy deal to the league. The NHL has five days to review.

I have a feeling if the NHL rejects this one, Kovy is signing in KHL within 24 hours.

Even if he didn't we couldn't sign him anyway after a second rejection, the league would likely seek to impose cap fines on us if this one doesn't pass the sniff test.

Well if they are 3 years for 9 million it's not hard to rubber stamp them. When something says 100+ over 17 years, that would take a little longer to go over.

this. i am assuming they reached some sort of agreement or 'unofficial preapproval' because why would lou risk the cap fines? I am certain they would look to fine us, especially buttman, for a second rejection of a signed contract.

Well if it's true that we're giving them what they asked for, then hopefully they won't take all five days.

Contract was not pre-approved by NHL.


So the Devils didn't get anything in the mail saying they were Pre-Approved?

TGfireandice Asked Bill Daly if it was five days or "business days" and he said days.

At least this will be over by Tuesday instead of Thursday.

I really gotta remember not to agree to take on work when Kovy news is apparent. Last time I looked this thread was at 509. Got some catching up to do I guess.

Still, from what I can gather, the sides believe, based on past feedback from the NHL, they have a contract the league will approve this time. I have no details of what the new terms are, but I hear that the magic $100 million total that Kovalchuk wanted all along was still part of previous concepts.



So it will be near or at the $100M. possibly the 13/98 or 14or 15/100. just do not see the 14 or 15 years. 13 sounds more approving by the league.

If it's 13/100 or even 13/98, I will be pretty pissed.
