the league cannot plausibly say that it doesn't have time. it takes 10 minutes to review all of the terms of a contract and compare them to similar contracts. jersey shore isn't on again until thursday, so that's out as an excuse too.

the league may just let time run out, but i think that's a really terrible decision on the league's part. it makes the league look unsure of itself - the league would get raked over the coals for that. not that it's that concerned with its public image, but i think it would rather lose a rejection than just twiddle its thumbs until wednesday 5 pm comes and goes.


I think the league is avoiding giving official approval to any contract they deem to be a circumvention, whether the circumvention is blatant enough to get rejected or not. Maybe Bettman & Co. view it as chips in their pocket when they go to the collective bargaining table, to say, "We never went on record as saying deals like these were OK with us."

The more time passes, the more I think this'll go the way of Hossa where the contract gets registered and he begins playing its term out, but it never gets the official league stamp of approval. It's pretty nutless on the league's part, but at this point what should we expect?

so that on someones twitter

So a random nobody on twitter now constitutes as a legit source. God, the twitter world is going to be the end of us all.

Edit:

The Devils' hopes to sign Ilya Kovalchuk have been confounded again, denied encouragement from the NHL on their second try at a contract, The Post has learned.



Rereading it, sounds like he's referring to this latest contract submission.

based on the posting date and the comments I think that's the article from last week where they rejected a "Framework" on monday.

He says the second proposal. Which would be the, erm, second one-- not the third one. Right?

I thought that this current one was the second actual contract submitted to the league. Either way, I am not believing any single source on this. Especially since if (N)Đ„verson did have the exclusive, he'd probably be yelling it from the top of the post building.
