Renaud P Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
NHL and NHLPA agreed to put a special waiver period in place, starting right now until September 15...

Renaud P Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
That way, veteran players of the AHL, with 2 way contract, are going to have the right to play for their farm team.

Renaud P Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
They won't have to be put on re-entry waivers if they are call back 3 days before the start of the season.

Bob McKenzie wrapping his head around the CBA issues as he comes back from vacation.

Quote:
Based on what we've seen of the negotiations to this point, the overriding sense I get from the public opinion reaction of fans and media -- for what that is ultimately worth -- is that the NHL is looking for an awful lot, too much too fast. I would generally agree with that characterization.

I mean, the typical reaction goes something like this: The NHL locked out its players for an entire season in 2004-05, was able to implement a relatively rigid salary cap, got a 24 per cent wage rollback on all existing NHL player contracts, created much sought-after "cost certainty" with the escrow feature of a cap that linked revenue and salaries, introduced entry-level restrictions and the league took this whole new economic system for a seven-year test drive only to come back now and say they don't like how it's driving.

PollakOnSharks: #Sjsharks haven't booked flights for rookies who would normally be reporting to camp this Friday. Not a surprise, eh?


More proof for an upcoming lockout

SBDJ Botta: As NHL lockout nears, teams, players and sponsors eye potential impact

Quote:
While the Calgary Flames, as of last week, were the only club to so far publicly acknowledge that they will roll out salary cuts for employees in the event of a lockout, other teams are keeping a close eye on their bottom lines.

“We haven’t had any work-stoppage-related layoffs yet, and I haven’t heard of cuts around the league besides what the Flames announced,” said one senior vice president with an NHL club who requested anonymity. “What we’ve told our employees, and I’m hearing it’s the norm around the league, is to not spend a dime without approval. We want to protect our staffs as long as possible, so being prudent about expenses only makes sense. Who knows what the cost of a lockout will be?”

AJ Maestas, president of Chicago-based Navigate Research, pointed first to the NHL’s casual fans.

“Not only would another lockout become a major challenge to win more fans, I believe the NHL would lose casual fans and not regain them for an extended period of time,” said Maestas, whose firm conducts research, measurement and analysis of sponsorships in sports and entertainment. “Our research after the last lockout (2004-05) showed the passionate fans quickly returned to the arena but a long lag time for casual fans to return to attending games and watching on TV. Given that TV ratings are one of the greatest challenges for the NHL, this is not good.”
...
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said last week there is no standard answer for how league sponsors would be handled in the event of a lockout.
...
As for teams, Daly said the league will work with clubs on protocols for season-ticket holders and other customers, but most such actions will be driven by the franchises themselves.

The NHL and NHLPA both say there are no CBA talks currently planned for today.

Just have Gary call the lockout press conference and get it over with. Sheesh. Considering both sides are meeting with their constituents later this week instead of negotiating, the lockout is already started for all intents and purposes.

AP story

Quote:
Daly wrote in an email to The Associated Press that he hoped both sides would meet before Saturday.

"But to this point, we have received no indication that the union has anything new to say to us. And right now, we have nothing new to say to them," he wrote Tuesday. "It's unfortunate, but it's the reality of the situation."

I just started a thread on it, but here's a link to an article outlining the rules:

Gretzky, Orr muse about potential NHL lockout

http://atlantic.ctvnews.ca/gretzky-o...ckout-1.952043

Quote:
“I really think this one won't be as long as the last one,” said Gretzky Tuesday during an event at Casino New Brunswick in Moncton. “I think somehow, some way, both sides will come together and we'll be playing hockey sooner rather than later.”

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Now that NHL and NHLPA have agreed on mechanics of sending to AHL players on NHL two-way contracts, the actual process has begun.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
FLA puts Casey Wellman, Andre Deveaux, Dov Grumet-Morris, Michael Caruso, Nolan Yonkman, Greg Rallo, James Wright, J.F. Jacques on waivers.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
BOS puts Trent Whitfield, Jamie Tardif, Garnett Exelby and Christian Hanson on waivers.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Also, PIT's Nick Petersen clears unconditional ($125) waivers, which allows for mutually-agreed termination of contract.

Aaron Ward ‏@aaronward_nhl

Per source,NHLPA offer similar to last but includes incentives.They feel their offer gives the solution.Debate has been over TIMING


Aaron Ward ‏@aaronward_nhl

so that more than just NHL negotiating committee sees it,and that the BOG meeting Thursday may get a look.Also considered no offer.


Aaron Ward ‏@aaronward_nhl

Key today is Don Fehr has 'flexibility' to move during the meeting today.
