So if the NHL rejects this contract, I'm driving back to Jersey, taking a train into New York, walking to the NHL offices, storming past security, taking the elevator up to Bettman's office, pulling him out of Crosby's ass, and punching him in the face.


Did I mention I didn't bring my car to school?

The initial rejection didn't come out till like 8:30 so it wouldn't shock me if we did hear something later on. 5 PM is only the deadline for tomorrow, but I'm hoping we don't hear anything since a rejection would be more likely than an acceptance to be announced before tomorrow.

I think when this is finally over, I won't know what to do with myself anymore. It's been such a persistent background thought over the past two months that there's going to be a very strange emptiness when it ends. It's like "now what?" Back to normal life, I guess.

the initial rejection news came out the same night as the contract. this is taking much longer.

but yes, i do think the NHL is willing to announce a rejection later.

At this point it'll never really end, even if the contract gets upheld then you have the question mark of who gets traded for what, then voila - camp begins. If the contract does get rejected god only knows what happens next.

if the contract is accepted, it's back to speculating on who has to be traded to fit this contract in.

My guess is that if this contract is rejected then Kovy gives the NHL the finger and goes to the KHL for a year or two.

Wow I mean just... Wow.. Nothing... what's the next rumor or tweet or twat... This stinks of so much disrespect it is not funny.
This relationship with Bettman has to end he has been screwing us all summer and not in a nice way.
I say REVOLUTION now!!!!!!!!!!
Cmon Gary just pull the trigger don't you like killing what you have just screwed.
Oh wait I know it has to happen at night so Bettman can be holding Cindy Crosby' cold wet - lovingly while he reads his report on the contract

I'm pretty sure the NHL will announce a rejection at 4:59 tomorrow. I can see Bettman's poo-eating grin now as he releases a smug little announcement.

I love the Devils.
I love hockey.

But I'm REALLY starting to hate the NHL.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Well if they just let it slide, the NHL will look pretty impotent.

If they reject it then they'll have to figure out how to take action against the contracts they let slide but put under investigation. I fear that's what they're toying with now.

I expect the contract will coast through. It seems only logical.

I would laugh derisively if we had a block-buster rejection of all contracts - this one and those under investigation. Then an arbitration for all with a possible court fight from those who slipped under the cracks. The Devils contract will be rejected outright and lou will be made the example - THAT is clear. Most likely the others will still stand on the technicality that silence is compliance - per the CBA they did not adhere to the proper time table in rejecting the contracts. Justified by small minds as a split decision - but very possibly all out war with players GMs and owners ALL against the NHL in the upcoming CBA negotiations. It's a calculated risk for Bettman and Co. Will the majority of owners stand behind him? Does the league hate the Devils as much as we all seem to feel or is it just this creepy Philly/Newark/NYC triangle media market making us feel that way?

It would be HUGE for Bettman to make a GIGANTIC example out of Lou Lamoriello. It's like casting a vote against the spirit of hockey and I can't see anyone who loves the game standing by a man who would do such a thing. Lou has said "This is hockey and we answer to a higher law" in the past with regards to the purse strings. Lou has gone out of his way to be as ethical and accommodating as possible with the NHL in this admittedly touchy situation. If you tell a guy like that that he's lacking integrity and doesn't understand what's good for hockey -- It would give everyone pause and everyone would look to Lou. and Lou -- he'll find the way to put the word out. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Bettman will hang.... but probably really doesnt' give a sh!t - he has ZERO ;egacy in hockey anyhow so why not just be an a$$hole for the fun of it -- just to not look so flaccid in the moment.

What Lou is proving is that the CBA as is isn't working- hockey isn't working under this. Not for anyone - because consistency has NOT come to pass and is CLEARLY not eminent. If it was going to work it would have by now. It's all seat of the pants and SOMETHING that breeds consistency MUST be put into play - otherwise it's killing the sport - killing loyalty for fans and teams and players. BettmanDaly can't do a BushCheney and steadfastly stick to EPIC FAIL.
