If anyone wants to read the 20-page report from the arbitrator.

Quite a great read.

Arbitrator's Ruling.

While Hossa and Pronger's contracts are ridiculous as well, Kovie's contract took it to another level where the NHL finally had to step in and do something to prevent more of these kind of contracts in the future.

I hate Bettman.
.
If I remember right, didn't the NHL look at the Hossa contract last year??

The Zetterberg and Franzen contracts are not being looked at so I'm happy.

Bettman does need to go away, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
I was disapointed in the amount of booing he got from Flyers fans this past season. At least it didn't come across that loud on TV. We boo'd him so loudly in Detroit the season before I couldn't hear a damn word he was saying. Not sure how is translated on TV since I haven't brought myself to watch the game yet. At this point I figure I was there so I don't want to see it again.

It's not his fault that Ferguson gave everyone and their mother a no trade clause.

Burke is gonna deal him at the deadline for a better haul. Kaberle will go to a contender, so he'll be happy. Burke will either get picks or prospects, so he'll be happy.

Burke wants a Top 6 forward, which is why he says he didn't deal Kaberle.

But will Kaberle waive his NTC at the trade deadline? He hasn't in the past, so I cannot see him waiving it this year.

Well, he has one year remaining on his contract, so by the deadline he will basically be a rental for a team. Not sure his trade value would be as high then, so I don't think Burke will be trading him unless there's a deal he can't refuse. And I don't think Kaberle will waive his no trade clause.

OK, I think I've done enough talking about the Leafs for a day. Ugh.

I agree with all of this except your last sentence. Kaberle has a habit of nixing trades like the now legenday Jeff Carter + a 1st Round from PHilly a couple of years ago

If he can go to a team that has a shot, why would he not waive it?

There have been cases where many players have opted to stay with their current teams than to be traded to a contender. Family and familiarity are often the reasons cited for why players don't want to move. Sundin and Redden are two examples.

Donald Fehr is coming...........................and so will armageddon at the end of the current CBA in 2012

NHLPA officially endorses Donald Fehr as next head of the union, players vote to approve awaits - ProHockeyTalk - Hockey - NBC Sports

Better enjoy the next 2 NHL seasons,because Fehr wants that showdown with Bettman in 2012.And god knows this is the last thing the NHL needs.another season being shutdown.
