Devils waiting for league approval

http://blogs.northje...chuks_contract/

The main reason why there apparently have not been more details released on the contract Ilya Kovalchuk agreed to with the Devils earlier today is that it has yet to be approved by the NHL, a source said.

Considering that the league has not voided similar long-term contracts in the past, it would appear unlikely that the it would block Kovalchuk’s contract. Still, because it is a lengthy and apparently complicated deal, the NHL will take a thorough look at it before giving approval.

The Devils will make the official announcement during a news conference at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Prudential Center. As I mentioned earlier, MSG-Plus will not carry the news conference live, but will post it along with interviews on MSG.com later in the day.

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


Bonuses do count against the cap (example A, Hedberg's deal which isn't actually for $1.5 million, example B Toews' bonus for winning the Conn Smythe kicking in and further hamstringing the Hawks).

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

We still can't move the puck as well as need to from the back end.

Tedenby in the minors then?


May as well trade him instead of the 1st. Considering we now have 3 of the top 15 LWs in the game, it's not like we're going to need a top 6 guy at that position anytime soon.

Possibly. Greene is decent, and supposedly Tallinder is ok? The D should be an interesting group to watch this year....

That is of course assuming that no-one on the LW or C gets hurt. Say Elias goes down, or someone at C and Elias is needed to fill in. We need the depth, last season showed that.

convenient that 102 / 17 = 6. That's Elias' cap hit and seemingly a barrier for the team. Makes a statement too regarding where Lou wants to see contracts.

I would not trade him. He has a lot of upside and it would be silly to trade him.

Or you shift him to right wing and keep a developed asset.

Tallinder has an excellent first pass, Greene can move the puck and Urbom moves the puck well.

i'm trying to think of teams that have two players who consistently play on their off-wing. the devils could potentially have 4 if they kept tedenby.
