Well obviously his (Russian) agent contacted the KHL. He's not signed yet and that guy still wants his pay-day?

Grossman would be dumb to contact the KHL because he'd be letting his top client and top commission go.

These speculative fake rumor articles are really annoying.

heres the article about Kovy's agent contacted the KHL...

“‘Ilya knows that our proposal is still on the table,’ Medvedev said at the World Hockey Summit. ‘Actually, I got a call from his agent. I will call after I finishing the discussion with you.’

I don't know if anybody reads the Puck Daddy blog on Yahoo but he wrote about how Langs is upset with this whole situation.

Ive said this many times, at this point i dont care if tis up to an $8mil cap hit

Give him a 13year contract at $98 million which is just over a $7.5 cap hit, kovy will take that, and i can see kovy playing until at least 37 which means he would get $85 million in the first ten years, magically trade rolston and salvs and we are set to rock and roll!

1st year $10mil
2 $10mil
3 $9mil
4 $9mil
5 $9mil
6 $8mil
7 $8mil
8 $8mil
9 $8mil
10 $6mil
11 $6mil
12 $4mil
13 $3mil

:noclue:

This will give Capt Prissypants a chance to sulk all through training camp into the season. :whistling:

So we are almost done with August and we still have nothing. I never thought I would say this but i want Fehr involved now, I almost want a walkout by the players over the shafting they just got over this whole situation. The league set up a sh!tty set of rules then half a$$ enforced it and it's a joke.

Found this article pretty interesting

Langenbrunner talking about Fehr, hoping he will guide the PA back in the right direction, and saying the NHL is taking advantage of a "wounded animal" :horse:

I'm pretty sure Kovy has no other desirable situations besides the Devs or KHL. The Kings signed Willie Mitchell to 2yr/7m deal yesterday.

the kings can still afford kovalchuk, if they wanted to do that. i don't think they do, or will, but they have room under the cap for kovalchuk.

They might get him as a 1 year rental but he's not gonna want to do that. They have a few hot commodities to sign next season.

Shameless plug: Check out Intent to Blow's take on the Kovalchuk second contract rejection, it's pretty spot on.

NHL says they wanta contract shorter than 13 years...... Kovy probably wants same money, Devils cap hit would end up being 8 or more higher.....

KHL could pull this off no problem.
