Hossa deal is the very same thing...Lou will win in court and the NHL will look stupid.

wow this sucks, i hope this doesn't affect too much. Anyone have any insight as to what this could mean as far as him being a devil? Would they just restructure it or is it possible that he sign elsewhere now?

edit: Per TG "TGfireandice

I can confirm, via a source, that Kovalchuk contract has been rejected
less than a minute ago via web"

I just don't see how you can start at this contract when you already allowed the Hossa, Richards, and Pronger deals.

Unless the NHL has evidence that Kovy does not plan to play out his deal, the contract is legit.

Playing at age 44 (especiallly a player of Ilya's skill level) is not unheard of.

The length of the contract isn't what is in question, I would say its the age at which they are when the contract ends. How old is Hossa when his contract is up?

it is exceptionally rare. as far as i know the only players who have played at age 44 are howe and chelios.

the nhl would have to allow a 15 year deal, though, which at 102 million would put kovalchuk's cap hit at 6.8.

unless he takes a discount on the price, the cap hit goes from 6 a year to 6.8

he'd have to take less money
