Are you suggesting we make a Rolston Trade pending thread?

Depends. Can you start the thread before it happens?

TG:

Still, Rolston said he expects to be part of the Devils in 2010-11, “at this point, for sure.”

Remember when Lemaire said something like that?

Now I'm seeing 17 years 150M. I hope it's closer to 100.

i hope the 50mil is just bonuses, which i think dont count against the cap

Burnside is still a tool and having to backtrack:

Sorry for the confusion on Kovalchuk; new deal 17 years at slightly more than $100 million in total. $150 million represents total earnings. half a minute ago via web

Checked the site today, saw the news and have to say that I'm absolutely speechless. I would have bet my house that Kovy was going to sign with the Kings. To be honest, I was firmly in the camp that it was best to let him walk and so the Devils could use the extra cap money to sign/trade for Kaberle, etc. But I have to admit I'm kind of pumped now. That being said, plenty of big questions still remain. For starters, if Parise doesn't re-sign I think this signing will be a big mistake. Also, if Rolston remains on the roster and Salvador/Clarkson/Zubrus are moved I'm going to be a little bummed out. I also have to admit when I first heard rumors of the 17-year contract, I thought it was a joke. But if you do the math, it comes out to an annual cap hit of $5.88 million a year - which is kind of an awesome number if you think about it. Finally, on a somewhat humorous side note, somebody (can't remember who) made the analogy of waiting for Kovy to sign akin to waiting for ketchup to come out of the bottle. If I remember correctly, the person wrote that if you have a great hamburger and the ketchup eventually comes out, it's worth the wait. But if it doesn't, your whole BBQ is ruined. I then made the mistake of explaining that analogy to my 4-year-old daughter. And every day for the past 12 days, she has woken up and asked me point blank, "So has the ketchup come out of the bottle yet?" Finally, I'll be able to tell her, "Yes, the damn ketchup has finally come out of the bottle." And that at least counts for something.

Haha that was me, glad you liked it.

Question: Do we really need Bryce anymore? I'd trade him for a pick...I'm sure you can get a second or third round pick for him.

If another D-man is needed...get someone younger in a Bryce trade.

Like, Ilya is kinda like ketchup. We just took the burgers off the grill (Volchenkov) and whipped out the buns (Tallinder), and a plain burger is fine -- sometimes it's even really good -- but we need ketchup to make it perfect. And after painstakingly looking for the ketchup bottle, we finally found it (Kovalchuk to New Jersey per (N)Єverson). But once we bring it over to the burger, there's not alot left. So we wait and wait and tap all the ketchup to the bottom of the cap, and squeeze it. Now, if Ketchup comes out (Ilya does sign here), it makes all the waiting worth it. But if all we get is a watery-tomatoey disgusting concoction, (Ilya signs elsewhere), it makes the burger and buns (A-Train and Tallinder) almost inedible, plus it was a ridiculous waste of time trying (waiting.)

And I'm almost positive that you can't.

Yeah, but then again so was SD in a weird, twisted way. (N)Єverson, too. Not great company, you've got there.

I guess we will know if (N)Єverson was right sometime soon. we might need to change the auto-formatting on his name.

Didn't Manta say he would "buy a Kovy jersey and change his avatar to honor Kovy" if Martin walked and Kovy signed?

One more time for the cap dense (like me), if we're paying him over 17 years, and he decides to retire after 10, we keep paying him his salary but the cap hit for retired players disappears? All that salary the Devils continue to pay is just money shelled out and doesn't count against the cap, right?

No. The cap hit stays for all seventeen if he retires. That's the idea of the deal. He'll retire in like year 14 because it would be small money on the back end of the deal. He won't get paid but the avg. cap hit stays.

EDIT: Oh my bad. THe 35+ rules don't apply to him.
