the guy from nhl.com is tweeting about this. when that's happening, you know it's all just formalities.

or just more twitting noise. 5 hours of formalities starts to you know, not exactly sound like formalities. it's entirely possible they had an agreement in principle and writing the agreement is proving difficult. because of the idiots that are involved in the process.

if they go to sleep on it and punt until Wednesday (figuring 2 business days), it starts to look like all bets are off. ultimately, when you look at the lameness of what is being reported about the deal, it's hard to believe the PA wouldn't accept it, but who knows who is bickering about what in the language.

come off it. you don't think it's difficult to ratify something an existing collective bargaining agreement? that has to involve a lot of paperwork. when the league's version of pravda is reporting it as fact, it's probably happening.

all bets could be on - for us.

it's not my fault you have a gambling problem. :lol: I'm having flashbacks to 2005 here. and from what the twits are reporting, it was pre-ratified by the PA. I'm assuming the BoG signed off on this goofy charade before it even started, unless Bettman is just sick of his job and wants to be fired... especially considering the rumored contents.

I just want something more solid than twits or news reports based off of twits. every freaking twit has a twit, including me. so now, TG says maybe they can meet this particular deadline. we shall see.

i don't think you seem to get that 'news based off tweets' are things that were reported as news pre-twitter.

not as free and easily. re-tweeting can turn one bad story into a firestorm. if twitter was around in 04-05, I probably would have murdered someone.

I gotta say if we do end up getting Kovy, the way he's acted during all this bs has really showed me that he really does want to play for the Devils.

Age is calculated in new rule on June 30 at end of that season. So, cap hit for first 13 years would be $7.15 mil. under new rule. Sorry.

however

Again, new rule doesn't apply to Kovy contract, so being grandfathered saves Devils more than $500,000 in cap space per season. Significant.

You'd think the NHL would have just pushed it back from 5 to midnight to begin with, but nooo that makes too much sense, we've got to keep everyone obsessively checking twitter and message boards so we'll just extend the deadline a couple hours here, a couple hours there :rant:
