it's not really a secret... but I still am not sure to where the line is drawn with the NHL... I've listened to an agent, whom I'm fairly cordial with by now, call their player two days before July first with a list of teams that are interested... Curiosity eventually got the best of me so I asked when he was in town one day... Orr basically said "well they didn't make any offers"...

I'm assuming that's basically where it is as to what they let slide, let alone the task of trying to prove anything... you wouldn't see nary the deals that happen within the first hours without a knowledge of who was interested otherwise...

personally I think they should go NBA style where they hit FA but can't sign for like a week... let's bring Kovy on Anshutz's jet for a couple days...
