The thing is, risking your picks on a ruling the governing body believes to be interpreted the opposite way is a foolish decision.
Except that if it had gone to arbitration and ruled against them they would have cut the baby in half and they wouldn't have lost everything really. You can bet they talked with in house council and they gave them the interpretation. And they asked the agent about it and they did the same. So it really sounds like the Avs matching saved things from getting ugly.
And another report was made that 4 other teams made offers. So it sounds like we have a part of the CBA that is vague in a big way. Haven't seen anything confirming it but it was said by Darren Dreger from what I read.
