    from what i understand, this is not the complete document, but is indeed part of the final CBA.

    it's quite a lot to look at.

    take out the underscore]

    Neat. Didn't realize the CBA consisted of an unresolvable domain name.

    it takes 130 pages to lay out the first 48 Articles; everything from free agency (restricted and unrestricted), draft rules, team compensation for free agency, waivers, arbitration, pensions and all the other standard looking legal-eze from the previous CBA.

    Article 49 changes all of that: "PLAYER COMPENSATION COST REDISTRIBUTION SYSTEM" takes almost twenty pages.

    Article 50: "TEAM PAYROLL RANGE SYSTEM" takes the final 75 pages of this document. try to guess what that it.

    :yo: I finally have an excuse not to be with the wife this weekend!!!!

    50.2(c)(iv) - the "Vladimir Malakhov" clause.
    50.5(b) - how the upper and lower limits are calculated

    Most of this - :eek: I'm gonna need some time to go through this.

    I'm not gonna ask where you got this (ok I will, but I expect an evasive answer if anything), but a big

    THANK YOU skk_82

    click on the link and remove the underscore in between the y and o.

    for some reason HF doesn't link to that site.

    :teach: This jumps from Article 33 to Article 47.

    Something else:

    This does not apply to emergency recalls. So while there is no roster limit after the trade deadline, each team is limited by that 4-recall rule.
     
  12. Now I want to personally request for some of the more ignorant members who continue to blame Bettman for certain things, to please read the whole section about the competition committee in Article 22?

    Thanks, and please remember that whenever you whine about Bettman ruining the game...

    thanks.

    that's because you're not ready to handle the middle ;)

    no honestly, i didn't have that. the main points i want, were the cap and the revenue definitions and salary constraints. got what i wanted, so i really can't complain.

    Actually, the most recent Hockey News reveals why the CBA hasn't been published yet - it isn't finished!

    The final version should be ratified in the next few weeks. I guess nobody wanted to release a draft version.

    Does it really say '50.2(c)(iv) - the "Vladimir Malakhov" clause'?

    So, If I read this - does that make me qualified to be a General Manager?

    Really, could I be any worse than Milbury?

    yeah, from what i've been lead to understand that's true.

    but what i've posted almost certainly is what's up for ratification. and at this point, it's just a ceremony away from being official.

    actually i won a bet against janet jones :sarcasm:

    because there just wasn't enough time. it's taken months for both sides to compose this massive document, let alone comb through it (neither side wants to get caught in a loophole) and make minor corrections.

    the owners ended the lockout and play resumed when they and the players association agreed on the main terms of the CBA (salary cap, revenue agreements, UFA ages, arbitration rules, etc). it just takes a little time to get it all converted into formal legal-eze. they could have waited until every little detail was finalized, but everyone wanted to get started with this 05/06 season.

    I still don't understand how they could start the season without much of the CBA finalized and in writing? I understand how the general concepts of the cap, arbitration, ufa ages, etc., could be understood, but how could they feasibly enforce certain minor clauses which weren't finalized or necessarily understood by the start of say, free agency or the season?
