NHL MAY NOT APPROVE DIPIETRO DEAL

Word coming down on several fronts right now..

First the deal is 65M over 15 years, and secondly I am being told by several sources that the NHL is looking hard at this deal and may not approve it.

Rumor is that last year the Isles and DiPietro almost signed a 15 year deal and the NHL shot it down before it became reality and Wang decided against it ...Could get interesting today...I am told that it is "highly possible that the NHL lawyers, who are looking over this now, may find a loophole and nix it."

It is also possible that the deal does get approved, since theprevious one did not and Wang has made the needed corrections to this one.

Stay tuned
