UPDATE: The Tennessean’s Joshua Cooper has reported via Twitter that the NHLPA has officially filed a grievance against the Predators.
PuckScene.com has confirmed this independently through an NHLPA spokesperson.
The NHLPA is currently reviewing the timing of the qualifying offers submitted by the Nashville Predators, Jonathan Weatherdon, Director of Communications for the NHLPA, confirmed to PuckScene.com on Wednesday afternoon. No player names were mentioned.
The players listed in both Nick Kypreos’ tweet and in Andy Strickland’s original report were Cal O’Reilly, Nick Spaling, Matt Halischuk and Sergei Kostitsyn. David Poile informed Jeremy Gover of Section303.com last week that the Predators had re-signed O’Reilly, but no formal announcement has been released by the team.
Both the Nashville Predators and the NHL have stated that they believe that all paperwork was handed in by the team on time and in the proper manner.
