Are you ready for your daily dose of Koval-talk? We knew you were. As was expected today, there was no decision in the Ilya Kovalchuk contract grievance. While it was possible arbitrator Richard Bloch could’ve handed down a decision today, the chances of that happening were pretty slim.

There’s a possibility that a decision could come over the weekend, but it’s more likely that we’ll have a decision handed down some time on Monday. If you’re curious about what will happen either way in the Kovalchuk case, we outlined the possibilities of what will happen the other day and if you’re itchy for a refresher course, by all means give it a look-see.
