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.

The Devils stop paying him and the cap hit stops as well.

If it is the 17 year deal, most of the actual money will be paid out in say, the first 10 years of the contract, while the last 7 years has very little money. So Kovy collects 100 million over the first 10 years in real money, while the cap is only affected by the cap hit, which is the contract value divided by 17 years, or $110 million/17 years=6.45 million cap hit(as a made up example. So Kovy retiring after 10 years in this scenario would remove the 6.45 cap hit from the Devils cap and they would not have to pay the remaining 10 million dollars.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

False. If he retires, the cap hit is gone. This deal was signed before he turned 35..

On the other hand, if Rolston retires, we are fvcked and we just pay him 5 mill (against the cap) to sit at home.

is that the official Contract? 17 Years for 100Mil+ or so? Like it's not gonna turn into 2 years for 23.6Mil is it? Cause while I am really excited about Kovy staying...I'm a greedy SOB and want him for his career.

Kovalchuk $102m over 17 years. $10m per year for the first 8 years. $7.5 for the next 2, from what I heard.

That would be fantastic if true.
