     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).
