Arbitrator upholds NHL void of Kovalchuk contract

If you want to chat up the NHL news of the day, this is your thread. What now for Kovalchuk? Two fewer years and a higher cap hit, or...? (I can think of 100 reasons (okay, maybe five) why this decision was upheld. Kovy/Devils partisans who say "rules are rules, this isn't fair" probably haven't read enough of the CBA, and definitely don't gather that ambiguous clauses - such as those in the CBA - are made to be interpreted as situations warrant.) The CBA left room to draw the line somewhere; sounds like the arbitrator buys the NHL's line.
