They've still got to wrap and sign the MOU, and then according to MacKenzie it'll still be two hours before any trades/signings can go through. Arghhh!

Maybe it's 15 players who voted no OR just didn't vote. Guys like Lubomir Visnovsky, for instance, don't have much reason to vote since they aren't going back. Not sure if there are any other cases like that though.

Wouldn't shock me if the Russian players were most of the nay votes

But yeah the 15 non-yes votes can be abstensions too. Maybe Tyler Seguin couldn't find his computer, for example.

Hainsey, Darche and Campoli especially the latter since they'll have more time on their hands now.

Wouldn't surprise me if guys like Parise, Weber and Suter voted "no" because they have those huge guaranteed bonuses regardless of whether or not they play over the next few years.

Reminder

Parise & Suter: $25M over 3 years.

Weber: $68M over 6 years.

He must be one of the only players who can see the "fearsome things" in the CBA.

There must be special goggles for that.

At this rate it will be another 5 A.M. announcement and the only people around to report the Luongo trade will be the cabbies.

A huge majority voted yes, doesn't that mean it's done?

The CBA has been ratified by both the Owners and Players yes but they still got to complete and sign the MOU before opening training camp.
