well, that's all fair, but $15M is $15M. that's a lot of money to leave on the table. and all we have to go on here are hearsay and conjecture, which while according to lionel hutz are 'kinds' of evidence, they're not really substantial. i agree that with everyone's blinded bettman hate, kovalchuk's seeming greed is being lost.

how about a super-front loaded deal along the lines of this?

11.5 11.5 11.5 11.5 11 7 7 7 3 3 3 2 2

it pays him 46 million in the first 4 seasons, and 84 in the first 10.


Kovy ain't taking a deal that's paying him only 7 million in only the sixth year of his contract.

Anyways, we're debating nothing because there's no delay here between Kovy and the Devs. Lou drafted up a 15 year deal that would give a minimum cap hit and it got rejected. Now he'll either submit that contract and go to arbitration (prob not gonna happen) or he is gonna draft up a 13 or 14 year deal with a minimum cap hit. Kovy and his agent are going to do what they've done all along: "Ok the contract pays what we want, let's sign it and hope it's the last time we have to do so."

dude give me a break, the contract pays him pretty much the maximum in the first 5 seasons. under that logic, why would he take a deal that pays him 6 million dollars in year one?

In years 9 and 10 he was going to get paid 8.5 and 6.5 respectfully, that's 2 years of being well overpaid for the first two years of being underpaid. Sure Kovy might take that for the 11.5 for 4 years but compare that to the 5 years at 11.5 in the original contract.

Don't get me wrong I like your 13/91 - look at my posts - I now think we are going to see that, I just don't think it will be structured that way.

Prediction: 11 11 11 11 11 9 8 8 4 3 3 2 2 1 14/95 = 6.78 cap hit

Might be a chess move to scare the league.

EDIT: not the hanging, the phone call to Medvedev

I want to blame the league. I do blame the league for happening to draw the line on front loading when the Devils made a deal. That said, Kovy's not worth the trouble he's causing. He has the right to go home in the offseason, but disappearing when your contract goes to hell is problematic to say the least. As has been said, the Devils and the NHL have worked to make this deal work, and it doesn't seem like Kovy's willing to. He's not as good as Zach, and he's not worth the trouble unless he's willing to help out with the deal.

never even heard of him. I would guess less credibility than what I'm throwing out there, and I can't add FWIW enough times to it.

Devils should add 3 years to Kovalchuk deal and return to NHL office with @Jay_Grossman and Donald Fehr.

This guy Fehr might become legendary if a deal is submitted and approved ASAP now but I still think Mamachuk is the new Chuk Norris.

LOL...Chuk Norris - wouldn't that be the name for Kovy on the Devils? A defensively sound Kovy? Norris...get it? I'll shut up now.
