    I remember reading some time back that Allan Walsh sued Gaborik after he fired him at the end of his holdout last season. Does anyone know whether that case was resolved?

    Last I heard they'd met with an arbitrator who'd put a gag order on both sides. I think Schatia and Walsh were looking for $275k in fees they felt they were owed.

    This being heard under the arbitration provisions put in place by the NHLPA regarding disputes by NHL players with certified agents.

    Allan Walsh and David Schatia sued Gaborik through the NHL Players' Association last year. They claim they are entitled to a percentage of the deal for services rendered before Gaborik fired them and hired Ron Salcer to settle his dispute with the franchise. There have been four days of testimony before arbitrator James A. Gross. The decsion is pending at this moment.

    The decision of the NHLPA arbitrator is binding as Matt Cooke of the Canucks found out when he dumped his agent and was ordered to pay up and did not.

    In 1999, arbitrator Theodore St. Antoine ordered Cooke to pay former agent Rick Heinz $11,763 (Canadian) for helping to negotiate the forward's first three-year contract with the Canucks in 1998. Cooke hired Heinz in 1996 and fired him during the negotiations with Vancouver, hiring Patrick Ducharme to finalize the deal.

    St. Antoine ruled that Heinz was entitled to 1.5 percent of the gross compensation, plus 8 percent interest, for each of the three seasons of the contract.

    Cooke paid Heinz for the 1998-99 season. But Heinz had to sue Cooke in the Supreme Court of British Columbia for the remaining $11,763, according to the petition Heinz filed in 2001. Cooke paid up before the case went to trial.

    Interesting... safe money is that you're an agent but maybe not.

    He's the guy trying to be helpful on this thread, deserving of appreciation. Just a thought as to message board etiquette...

    When someone posts inside information with none of the required proof it is only logical that someone should request confirmation of their identity.

    Unless I'm mistaken, this little bit of "message board etiquette" (claiming insider info)is strictly forbidden by the posting rules.

    The Allan Walsh situation is something that is a case not known hockey-wide and the fact that he was quoting it and knew the current status was something I was curious about.
