Hossa, Luongo, Savard, etc. are cleared along with Kovalchuk's deal - as per the new agreement. It will be the last of its kind, though, and all future contracts will no doubt be further scrutinized and perhaps denied.

Kovy's 15yr 100million contract will be approved as is. Others will remain unchanged.

"Will be last of it's kind"

Kyper saying players will no longer be able to use ages 41 and over to circumvent cap.

The right words cannot be found right now. :nonono:

Wow.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I don't agree with a 41+ rule. The league is getting less physical and advances in medical and sports therapy means players will be more effective at older ages. I seriously hope this is a band aid rule, that only lasts till the next NHLPA / NHL contract.

Edit: maybe I should also clarify I don't agree with circumventing the cap to begin with?

The NHLPA is absoulely rudderless right now with no sense of direction. If they don't pull it together soon, they're going to be schooled (again) during the next round of negotiations.

@darrendreger

5 years now defines a long-term contract.

35 yr old player signs 7 yr deal, the first 5 yrs of determine aav. Cap hit in year 6 + 7 would be actual value of his deal in those yrs.

players 36-40, amount used for aav is a minimum $1 million. (even if actual salary is less).

New rules only apply to contracts negotiated and filed after today's date. They do not retroactively apply to existing contracts.

I still wanted him to go to LA, they have a great team over there, with him they would be frightening. The devils just bore me. Oh well.

15 years is crazy.
