    We may be close to the final word on Savvy's contract.

    According to the New York Post, the New Jersey Devils, Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks may be in a world of hurt if the Players’ Association fails to comply with the following rules:

     

    1. That the cap hit on future multi-year contracts will not count any seasons that end with the player over 40 years of age. The cap hit would be calculated on the average of the salary up through age 40 only.
    2. That the cap hit on future contracts longer than five years will be calculated under a formula granting additional weight to the five years with the highest salary.

    As far as mandate No. 1 goes, the Bruins can breathe a huge sigh of relief knowing that center Marc Savard’s seven-year pact will expire just a month or two before he celebrates his 40th birthday. Whew! No mention of No. 91′s contract was made in the article, indicating that the B’s should be in the clear.

    The real question from this article is where the hell is The Globe on reporting information about Savard's contract investigation? This is the first legitimate bit of information about how the NHL wants to handle said contracts and The Globe is once again sleeping at the wheel.

    Hope so then there will be an end of all the speculation plus if they approve the 2nd Kovalchuk contract I don't see why the league would de-register Savard's.

    PS. Put some black n gold jam on that toast NorthernBrewin!

    Savard's contract isn't even being mentioned according to tsn.ca.  They are just mentioning Luongo, Hossa and Kovalchuk as contracts that may be revoked.  I really don't think there is anything to worry about with the Savard contract.

    Oops....entered to fast.

    I don't think it will affect Savard's contract, however, the ruling will affect future contracts and it will be interesting to see how GMs structure future deals (and what constraint they will be under) as it applies to their top players.

    In the Bruins case, it will obviously have an effect on the kind of contract (and cap hit) that will be offered to  Bergeron and Chara going forward.

    And once there is clarification on Savard's contract, look for contract extension talks for Bergeron and Chara to speed up.

    You see this is what I'm talking about on top of their game Puck Daddy, Elliot Friedman, Darren Dreger and gulp god forbid I have to read Larry Brooks of the New York Post to get better hockey reporting ? Yep

    "And once there is clarification on Savard's contract, look for contract extension talks for Bergeron and Chara to speed up."

    I say that this should happen as well at least Bergeron's extension because Chara's agent has mentioned he might wait so we'll see.

    Seems like the NHL is looking for long period contracts that would  still be in affect when a player is past the age of 40 . Savvy will only be 39 LOL...
    Also like I said on another post Savvy's contract came into effect on September 1st and the NHL would have to make up a new rule to void this contract or BS that they contacted PC and Savvy's agent before the 1st.

    duinne you spoke to soon . Give these guys a break. Pedroia is getting operated !

    Hmm.  So, what happens if a 34 year old player signs a 8 year contract that reads:
    $1M-$1M-$1M-$1M-$1M-$1M-$20M-$6M?

    Okay, so obvious answer is that no player in his right mind signs that contract.  It still seems like another loophole.

    I love when people discuss new info, then complain that they didn't read it in the Globe first.
