We Have A Grievance!

Oilers not happy about Michael Nylander.

Considering that the NHL tends not to get too involved in these kinds of things, I can't imagine that this is going to go anywhere unless Edmonton has an actual player contract in hand which they don't seem to have. The worst that I can see happening is some sort of fine being levied on Nylander and/or his agent, Mike Gillis, but I wouldn't bet on it.

You might remember a few years ago when the Caps thought they had their Petr Sykora signed to a contract only to find out later that he didn't actually sign the contract and ended up missing the deadline for transfer from Europe to the NHL. As a result his contract was null and void and the Caps had to wait another two years (because of the lockout) before bringing him over to disappoint everybody.

As Yogi Berra famously once said, "it isn't over until it's over" and Edmonton only smears more egg on their face by whining like this.
