You can read the legalese by clicking the link in the tweet.



IMO, not the best timing with a possible Stanley Cup clinching game tomorrow night.

Another tweet from Walsh,

Guess Bettman doesn’t like Section 18.13 of CBA- “The NDA’s decision shall be final and binding in all respects and not subject to review”.

NHLPA spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon said the NHL’s filing is “completely without merit.”

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement, “Today’s action was motivated primarily by our regard for the collective bargaining process and the importance of maintaining and safeguarding the parties’ reasonable expectations arising from the agreements made in that process.”

Honestly, if the Commissioner’s decision cannot be overturned then what is the point of the process with an independent arbitrator? This is the league giving the PA the finger, imo

The hockey world’s favorite law firm, Proskauer Rose, will probably be in the thick of things again.  Holy fuching hell.

LITTLE Midget really doesn’t like losing.  Must be a treat for his family to live with.

He doesn’t give a crap about the game, he has to make $$$ for owners
