I wonder if it is the $60M over 7 year deal? So who is NJ getting rid of?

Ya - should be interesting. Jersey only had about about 4.2M in cap space left...

Better him in the east than the west
Feuer und Wasser kommt nicht zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

The Devils made sure to turn off the cap option when they entered the off-season.

David Clarkson to Detroit for Miller, Ritola and a 3rd round pick, gets them 2 bodies and saves 1.5 on the cap!

Then send Zubrus back to Washington (where he played his best hockey) along with Travis Zajack for John Erskine, Matt Bradley, a high draft pick and a prospect... gets them below the cap, fills out their roster and replenished the farm system a little bit with what they lost to get Ilya... quick, someone get me Lou's number, I need to make a call!!!

I'm glad he's staying in the East. The West is tough enough as it is, and the East is too watered down.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

You wouldn't think so. If it is, NHL would probably look into it.

According to puckdaddy, the source is kovys mother!
Would be an insane deal if true.

Yeah no way they would allow a contract until a player is 44. Even worse/more obvious cap circumvention than Hossa and Luongo

A $5.8 mil cap hit for Kovalchuk would be pretty good. Since he's under 35, wouldn't they be off the hook if he retired before the end of this contract?

He's obviously going to retire before then. Do you seriously not remember the whole point of these super long deals? Two of our own stars signed them for a myriad of the same reasons.

They would be, yeah. That's why these really long term deals look so shady. It makes you wonder if they have an understanding that a player is going to retire at a certain age. There's no way the Devils can expect Kovy to play into his mid-40s.

No, I get why they're made. The difference is our players are signed until an age where they can be reasonably expected to play still. No one expects a player to play until they're 44.
