What does this mean for the Devs financially?
I updated my original post. Unless I did the calculator wrong (or am reading it wrong, which is certainly possible), it's a $250k/year hit until 2024/2025.
So Kovalchuk costs the Devils a $3 million fine, a loss of a first round draft pick and a third round pick just to get him re-signed, and then rewards them with a lengthy cap hit when he decides it's time to go back to Mother Russia.
"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,
is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!
When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.
And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!
And they call him Sandy Claws!
