I know there were several articles that posted excerpts, but I don't know of any place with the full ruling.
I hope its rejected and the NHLPA grieves it again. I hope the arbitrator agrees with the league again and Kovy signs for $45 million over 5 years
A link to the arbitration ruling is in the article below:

You guys realize that according to the reports Lou and company kept going back to Herr Bettman and saying...'is it ok now????' They finally got a wink and a nod and submitted the deal. The NHL can save face by just letting the 5 workday rule pass(tomorrow @ 3pm west coast time) and the deal is on the books. Like it or not, it would seem that we may be done with this. I won't put it to bed till it actually happens because this has been a strange friggin road. Like the deal or not, Lou went in and massaged the numbers enough that if Bettman wants to fight this deal he will HAVE to tear up all the other questionable deals too. The point was made...the lines have been drawn and war has been declared as far as the next cba goes. But this, as much as it chafes folks asses, is going to end tomorrow. I ****ing hope
If the Kovi/Devils deal finally goes through jerseydevil, you know they will be about 3mil or so over the cap and 2 other players to sign from what I read yesterday.:popc: If that is the case,who do you think Uncle Lou will trade just to get under the cap?.BTW,hope you had a good B'day.
I'm thinking that Lou might even let out a little sigh of relief.
