To hold personal grudges goes against what the Devils and Lou are all about. If the guy can help the team, you sign him.

 

I think Kovy could help us.

 

Obviously the rules are the rules, so this is all dare I say...hogwash...but it's the middle of June.

Watch there be some completely buried, unknown to everyone without a monacle and a flashlight, batsh!t crazy type of clause in the CBA that only Lou would find that allows NHL players whose last names start with the letters A-K who flee to Russia to re-enter the NHL Draft after one year away from the league, regardless of age... Then Lou drafts Kovalchuk with the 30th pick and trolls the whole world lmao. :P

I... I think my head might explode if I witnessed something like that.

fvcking hysterical.

But uh.. I'm assuming a player with NHL experience cannot be redrafted, right?

I can't even imagine what loophole Lou would ever find to make this happen. Unless Kovalchuk indeed takes the year off to recover from injury and he's a Devil in 2015 on a cheaper contract?

Who said in a follow up tweet he heard it from some Russian source in the media lounge in NYC.  He might as well say he heard it from the CAA security guard.

I take that as a good sign since the media lounge is open to people only with press credentials.

I am starting to believe there are some discussions. Ultimately though, there appear to be no loophole through the By-Laws, even under my reading of them, which might allow the Devils to bring Kovy back under the contract he had, but they wouldn't do that even if they could.

how about change of ownership, is their a clause that might make previous contracts etc meaningless or something like this?

Lou knows this CBA inside and out, and I'm sure he has some lawyers that do as well.

 

If there's a loophole to be exploited.. they'll find it.

 

I'm just worried about potential punishment from the league if they pull this off.  Devils really, really can't afford to lose more picks.

 

I can see it now - "Devils win first overall pick in draft after Kovalchuk reunion, but must surrender it"

It isn't the CBA that's the issue. It's the NHL By-Laws. Ultimately Bettman is judge, jury and executioner when it comes to those.
