restructure kovalchuks deal...........
What good is that going to do? TG has said we have the money to pay Parise and Marty. 5m for a 40+ year old goaltender who was not very consistent last year is not a good business decision. Marty is going to find his pickins slim and the money even slimmer. There are very few playoff teams that he would be able to go in and start regularly with and then it becomes which team wants to bring him in as an attraction to get butts in the seats.
My guess is if he's not with us, he goes to the loser of the Luongo sweepstakes. Florida or Toronto. I could see Chicago kicking their tires on him a bit.
Its also against the current CBA to re-negotiate terms.
11.10 No Renegotiation. In no event shall a Club and a Player negotiate a change in
any terms of a Player SPC for the then-current season or for any remaining season of an
