NHL/NHLPA SPLIT ARBITRATION RULING
Published March 22, 1995
An arbitration case involving the "criteria used in determining the average salary" was decided yesterday leaving the NHL and the NHLPA "co-winners." Arbitrator George Nicolau ruled the NHL can establish the methods for calculating the average salary -- "a procedural win for the league." But the NHLPA also "won" because marketing agreements between players and the league will be included in the calculation (CP/OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/22).
