Can't fathom why Lou, Vanderbeek, Grossman, and Kovy would go ahead and sign and announce a deal they knew would be rejected? What is the method to the madness? When will it end?

There are two possible reasons they did this:

A. They decided to try and bluff the league on the off-chance it would be approved. The consequences for getting rejected are minimal to non-existent. Now the Devils can just make a new offer.

B. They have a plan and figure they can beat the league's ruling and get the contract approved.

That's the best news we could have gotten. Grossman and Kovalchuk were ready for the rejection and knew the stakes. They are in this together with us. I'd have to say that at this point in time, it's the best news we could hope for.

No doubt- that's the news I've been hoping to hear since this whole process began. I feel much better.

That makes me really suspicious... do you think there's a possibility that the league could reject the contract? :o

It's probably a legal thing until the contract dispute is resolved. Didn't the NHL ruling say something about Kovalchuk not being able to honor the contract at all until it's resolved? Therefore the team can't legally advertise him being on the team yet. At least that's how I understood it.

Oh and here's some middle ground between ninja girls and Islanders highlights....

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

It's not just a legal thing, it's a logic thing. If anything, the team shouldn't be advertising him because doing so would encourage people to buy tickets. If somehow Kovalchuk doesn't end up playing in October, you could have hundreds or thousands of angry fans requesting refunds.

If the Islanders move to KC, can the Devils keep their ice girls?

My guess is it's definitely the deal they want and they are/were confident the league won't win the judgment

I wonder why he looks so unshaven in this photo; he was pretty pristine for the press conference which must have been around the same time this was taken? maybe poor quality video or maybe I'm imagining things due to my enkovalchantment

And even then, Kovy has a better beard than when Crosby grows his out for the entire postseason:
