Buffalo Sabres Daily: CBA, Kovalchuk, NHL 15

The Buffalo Sabres and the rest of the league locked out over money just a short while ago.  With revenue skyrocketing, the cap will surely follow.  Are we preparing for another lockout at the end of this CBA?  Most likely.  [CBS Sports].

If the NHL wants to avoid locking its doors again for even a partial season, they better start negotiating now.  The perfect storm is brewing for another NHL lockout at the expiration of the current CBA.  In fact, the NHL and NHLPA will never again be able to negotiate in good faith with one another without every CBA year ending in either a partial or full season lockout.

Speaking of growing a pair – how about the NHL just tells Ilya Kovalchuk that the league doesn’t want him around instead of playing this game with him? [NJ.com]

Sure it was a match made in heaven that they paid dearly for.  Sure it was  blessing in disguise when Kovalchuk “retired” in order to play in Russia.  Now the enigmatic forward wants to come back to the NHL apparently?  Thanks but not thanks is what I say.  There are too many conditions involved, and based on one set of conditions, Ilya Kovalchuk is telling the league, no matter what happens I will do this my way.

The NHL competition committee met to discuss changes for future years, goalie interference review one of them.  [NHL].

Hockey is a fast game.  Lets not slow it up with more reviews.  Play the game, and adapt and overcome.  If a call is missed who cares?  Referees are human and are prone to missing things.  Even with video review there is going to still be a grey area that people will complain about.  The perfect system could exist and it would still wouldn’t make everyone happy.

I am just glad it’s not the Buffalo Sabres whining about a No Goal that cost them the Stanley Cup.  Hey New York Rangers – you blew two other games too that didn’t have goaltender interference in them.

EA Sports has released a game play trailer for NHL 15 – and all I can say is wow. Actually looking forward to the annual release of this title now!
