Perhaps but they are quoting the Post just like TSN does...

OK I dunno WTF happened with the above post of mine...the quoting system went haywire it seems...



Thats what you gotta love about Canada, they're so starved for hockey a day after the cup they begin to run anything they get their frosty hands on.

If Brodeur signs for 17 years then kids not even born yet will get to see Brodeur when they are seniors in high school

Chances are, Kovy would retire a few years before the contract ended if he were to get a 17 year deal. It will be frontloaded so the last few years he would make peanuts.= RETIREMENT

well they'll have to be born within the next 3 years, and he'll retire at contract year 12, this way it doesn't hit unlucky 13 and violate Lou's rule of no 13's anywhere.

Maybe they're counting on, as a lot of people are here, that he'll retire or go back to Russia by the time he's 40.

I would love to see Kovy play for the Devils for the next 12-13 years....truly amazing....would become a 500 goal scorer as a Devil, and go into the HOF as a Devil....When will the ILYA ERA officially begin?

In fairness, hockey players don't go into the hall as a member of a team. Its not like baseball in that respect.

Not officially, but he will be recognized as a "Devil" at that point should he sign this contract....

well, 1) no one knows if any of these contract offers are real, and 2) it's possible he doesn't want to play here. or at least doesn't want to play here as much as he'd like to play for the Kings.

When Nieds announced his retirement, he had a list of accomplishments like stanley cup, etc. but it was not mentioned which team he got those cups except the Anaheim one, look it up, it's atrocious.

Or maybe the deal's already's done, he's a sadist, and he loves messing with our heads. He's doing a good job of it, so it's starting to become the simplest explanation.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

i think that is one of the best things about hockey. none of this "i played 19 years for this team and 1 year for the yankees, and won a WS with NY so i want to go in as one"

or "i want tampa to have a hall of famer so i want their cap when i go in"
