Darren Dreger at TSN.ca: The Flyers Disagree with NHL's Reading of Pronger Deal

34

Earlier this morning, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada filed the following from his Twitter account: Bill Daly on Pronger contract: "The relevant date is the June 30 before the extension becomes effective. So that's June 30, 2010...Yes, its an Over 35 deal, and yes, every year will count against the Flyers cap even if Chris retires." Impressed Daly was up at 6 am. Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly's comments were then confirmed by CSNphilly.com. The latest wrinkle is Darren Dreger's blog post, notable passage: The Flyers disagree and interpret the CBA language governing the "over 35" clause differently. Sources say the Flyers' lawyers are now aware of the league's stance and are debating this issue. Can we expect the Flyers to challenge the league on the CBA's interpretation? If so, will the Flyers use some of the same logic as Mc79Hockey in this blog post? UPDATE, 4:15pm CDT: Ken Campbell and The Hockey News contacted Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. Campbell's report can be found at this link, under the title "Flyers Won't Fight Pronger Cap Hit." See quotes from the story in the comment section below.
