A buddy of mine, Dave, is a finalist in the NYCFC Reporter Contest and could really use some help from the NJDEVS community. He's a huge Devils fan just like all of us here and could really use your vote which would help him obtain his dream job.
it's not good for the NHL when star (scoring) players get up and leave for another league
Exactly I think this is more embarassing for the NHL when compared to the Devils at this point.
Betmann cost us Kovalchuk without a doubt. If Kovy doesn't lose 40% of his pay for this past truncated season because of the lockout he probably stays and today would of just been another slow summer news day.
The cap recapture was only $250K and it would of been a hell of a lot worse if he would of done this three years from now because of the way the contract was structured so at least there's that.
