And Christie pushed thru the tax cut on millionaires. I hope the Devs withhold all the US and NJ taxes.

I was never a Kovy fan, never thought his heart was here, pretty obvious he signed here becuase of the contract size, and then realized that money could not make him happy.

 

His contract would have choked the devs out ina few years, its sucks that he's gone, but LL will figure something out, Devs had a great offseason, this alone does not kill that.

Lou sounds pissed based on the audio on the Devils website.

We went from being the 10th highest spending team in the league down to 24 in a matter of moments.

 

On the positive the Devils will be profitable!

This is not a cap circumvention at all.


The Devils virtually don't have to worry about recapture while getting 3 prime years of Kovalchuk

i mean... its probably not gonna happen but fvck do i ever hope we can keep our pick next year. Lamoriello is appreciated by everyone in the league and from what i read a vote could overrun that decision? i know other teams doesnt want to help the Devils but this isnt just about the Devils, its against the NHL.

It's still not a circumvention.  They get dinged by recapture it just doesn't matter.

TG has talked to the NHL, it's not happening.

Just realized. We all knew that he was going to retire before his contract ran out, right? It just happened about ten years before anyone expected it to happen.

Oh well, guys, we're gonna get through this.

Listening to that Lou conference call makes you feel like the Rebels are attacking the Death Star again.

Who were the Devils going to get?  The guys who would best replace Kovalchuk are still on the market.

I wonder if Lou had knowledge of this beforehand which led to adding lots of salary with Clowe, Ryder and Schneider

I wonder if Lou announced this before free agency it would have hurt them by making the Devils look less desirably by losing one of the best players in the world.
