New Kovy Update ("As the Kovy Turns")

Good point. The league is in no rush to announce anything and why would they be? They have to make sure all the paperwork is written out correctly and they still have three weeks before training camp. And then if there is part of the deal that the two sides haven't agreed on it doesn't matter - they postponed it hour by hour, showing they must be close. And any disagreement wouldn't be over Kovy anyways, it would be about the new rules. They have clearly agreed to grandfather Kovy's contract in AS IS, as soon as they inevitably reach a deal.

if you don't have an agreement for the rules, you don't have a contract. the deadlines are for the contract. if talks break down, the contract will be rejected. this stuff isn't that hard.

and when you see things like this where they're wayyyyy off, you have to question the validity of the reports in the first place. I'll spare you another twitter tirade.

this has NOTHING to do with twitter. every single major NHL news source is reporting this as DONE. wfan reported it as DONE. TSN is reporting it as DONE. ESPN. hell, i saw it on my yahoo headlines, which is always a day behind.

Oh cmon - You don't think the 2 sides would know when they're close enough to where they know they will reach a deal and feel comfortable leaking to the media that the Kovy contract would be approved?

Why are they still going on friday night of labor day weekend? They still have plenty of time, so why don't they just say fvck it and come back next week? I'm convinced this is a legal issue combined with the two sides making adjustments and reaching more specific compromises - I'll give you that there is probably an issue in which there is a legitimate gap between the sides; but not enough to break down talks. Honestly, these new rules are not complex enough changes to cause a roadblock here,

It only takes one source to claim it as being DONE though. Then other news entities shortly follow suite. Just playing devils advocate of course.

More specifically everyone reported that the two sides had reached a basic deal and that the Kovy contract would go through. That tells me the league and PA know they're going to work something out and feel comfortable letting the public know that Kovy's contract is good two go. Now they can focus on the specific issues remaining between the sides.

Bingo. Everything says "SOURCE" or "REPORT". these are "SOURCES" and "REPORTS" that wouldn't exist years ago because they would actually have to be in print. the NHL Network tape, it says "REPORT". well, jeez, it's the media arm of the NHL. and they're using "REPORT". that should tell you it's not done. :lol:

Its a done deal , grossman and Kovy were told its done, TG just tweeted nothing to worry about just lawyers doing their thing.

Now can we please stop being so paraniod

Paranoia? Has nothing to do with it how about track record this will be about the 10th time that it is as good as done, not paranoia just realist.

Why are you posting if you don't care, no one is making you read this thread. And the reason some people are still waiting for final word is because hmm I dunno we already had a press conference for Kovy and that was what a month ago and the deal wasn't even done then.

Paraniod and apparently also have sand in your Vag1na.

Show me the part where I said or even suggest I don't care.

Whole process has been stressful and a long time coming to say the least. Obviously with all the crap that has happened to date , some people feel inclined to stick it out until offical word that everything is finalized.Great . Fine . I get that. Just don't spread the wild speculations around and cause more stress when its not needed.

Between the dchesnokov tweet:

dchesnokov

Don’t forget, both @Jay_Grossman and Ilya Kovalchuk himself confirmed that the contract was approved.

And TG’s tweet:

TGfireandice

I’m told there isn’t anything to worry about. I guess this is just a process involving lawyers going through it that takes some time.

Plus the fact TSN ESPN CBC Sportsnet The NHL Network all says its done….

Thats good enough for me.
