New York Notables, Satan Signs In Europe, NHLPA Facts Vs Fiction

New York Islander Fan Central | 9/05/2012 07:32:00 AM
Most New York Islander Fan Central updates at this time can be best followed on twitter/sulia, or the new app created.

Miroslav Satan resigned in Europe for the entire 2012-13 season today, he will not be signing in North America.
*********************************
For those on Visnovsky hearing watch, his primary paper linked to many times this summer will likely have his quoted comments on a decision, despite the video hearing 9/4 between again Neil Sheehy, Anaheim gm, Bob Murray, and the arbitrator.
*********************************
Based on Corey Trivino's hearing date 8/8, if he decided to turn professional and sign with an NHL team the 30 day exclusive signing window for the Islanders would still apply for a few days.

Like 2006 pick, Troy Mattila he will be removed from the prospect blog by 9/10/12.

Brenden Kichton will reportedly will be going to Sound Tigers training camp per his recent comments, and may sign an AHL contract to stay.
*********************************
NHLPA Website 9/4: Release their own facts vs myth's based upon their version of the league's offers.

NYIFC Comments:
As always there are two sides.  

Seems beyond the market based partisan media rhetoric, things projected out here a few weeks ago are running even slower than our 9/10 critical point for owners to get serious.

A league with a 57m cap, front-loaded contracts, hundred million dollar deals over ten years with all top players receiving NTC/NMC seems a non-starter for a competitive business beyond corporations willing to write off millions in red-ink.

Soon the owners/players will be commenting a lot more.
************************************
Only the Islanders and Matt Martin's agent know if his 2012-13 clock runs out whether camp opens on time or not.

Nino Niederreiter is under no obligation to play for Bridgeport as a locked out NHL player, he could well play in Europe.
************************************
As for NYIFC there is no interest here in daily CBA negotiation updates, what New York Islander player will sign where if a lockout goes for an extended period of time or the entire season or projecting about a team that on paper where even if an agreement were announced today that cannot be discussed with any accuracy until days before a season would open.

To do so at this point would be a waste of everyone's time.
