KHL / NHL – Memorandum of Understanding (aka.. Operation: Respect Each Other’s Contracts)

KHL and NHL have come to an agreement of sorts..

The KHL and NHL met and discussed measures to help prevent poaching of the leagues’ under-contract players.

Here is the official KHL press release:

The Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that regulates player transitions between the two bodies, respects the professional contracts of players from both leagues and forces both sides to complete a range of procedures to avoid hostility in the transitioning of players from one league to the other.

The MoU’s conclusion marks an important step forward in the relationship between the two most respected hockey leagues in the world. The nine points of the agreement will be effective for the next 12 months and can be reevaluated at the end of that period. Terms of the agreement include the exchanging of lists of contracted and free agent players, each league providing the other their standard contract templates and agreeing to appoint official representatives to conduct negotiations in person in Toronto or New York to resolve any player contract disputes.

Kuklas Korner goes into the agreement a bit deeper in this article here.

Arbitrator has deemed the Devils unworthy.

Merely a flesh wound...

Well, well, well…

With previous contracts setting precedence, I did not expect the NHL to win out on the blocking of Kovalchuk’s contract with the New Jersey Devils, but an arbitrator has ruled in their favor. Back to the drawing board for the Devils and Kovy, and perhaps the Kings will take another stab at the talented winger.

Great result in my opinion, but I am surprised. Things will surely be more black and white in the next CBA. Well, one would hope.

Update:
The Edmonton Sun is reporting that 4 more contracts are now under review after a ruling that favored the NHL. Those newly named are Luongo, Hossa, Pronger, and Savard.

Somewhere this album holds the secret to our money woes

Somewhere this album holds the secret to our money woes

* UPDATE: The Offiical Oilers site reports that Smid has re-signed for 2 years, Stone and Brule for 1-year on a 2-way contract (amounts not disclosed yet).

** UPDATE 2: It was mentioned in a post on Oilers Nation that Brule will receive $800K. Still no word on Smid’s amount just yet. But I’m guessing ~$1.5M.

So today Jim Matheson published an article about the Oilers being tight to the cap with little wiggle room. That spurred what will become the rant to follow. Continue reading 'Budget Schmudget'»
