yeah it looks pretty bad - nice to see they would rather take a chance on the train wreck that is Nikolia Zherdev but pitch out a 10-year veteran for a shitty defensman and a fourth raound pick....

btw, here is the reported breakdown of Kovy's contract:

2010-2011: $6 million
2011-2012: $6 million
2012-2013: $11.5 million
2013-2014: $11.5 million
2014-2015: $11.5 million
2015-2016: $11.5 million
2016-2017: $11.5 million
2017-2018: $10.5 million
2018-2019: $8.5 million
2019-2020: $6.5 million
2020-2021: $3.5 million
2021-2022: $750,000
2022-2023: $550,000
2023-2024: $550,000
2024-2025: $550,000
2025-2026: $550,000
2026-2027: $550,000

un-fucking-believable...

makes a sham of the salary cap. it allows the devils to pay him 11 million dollars with only a 6 million dollar cap hit, and then they can easily buy out the last 5-6 years of the contract.

NHL REJECTS KOVALCHUK CONTRACT FOR SALARY CAP CIRCUMVENTION

The NHL has rejected Ilya Kovalchuk's 17-year, $102 million contract with the New Jersey Devils on the grounds that it circumvents the NHL's salary cap.

Kovalchuk was slated to earn $95 million over the first 10 years of the deal and then just $7 million over the last seven seasons. That would translate to an annual cap hit of $6 million per year.

TSN Insider Darren Dreger explains that the deal was rejected due to the fact that the NHL does not believe that either Kovalchuk nor the Devils expected the 2004 Rocket Richard trophy winner would be playing near end of the contract and that it is a case of artificially lowering the annual average value of the contract. The Devils must now either file the contract once again or the Players' Association can file a grievance.

Should the NHLPA decide to file a grievance, the contract would remain dead until an arbitrator determines otherwise.

The current CBA explains circumvention as the following in section 26.3:

(a) No Club or Club Actor, directly or indirectly, may: (i) enter into any agreements, promises, undertakings, representations, commitments, inducements, assurances of intent, or understandings of any kind, whether express, implied, oral or written, including without limitation, any SPC, Qualifying Offer, Offer Sheet or other transaction, or (ii) take or fail to take any action whatsoever, if either (i) or (ii) is intended to or has the effect of defeating or Circumventing the provisions of this Agreement or the intention of the parties as reflected by the provisions of this Agreement, including without limitation, provisions with respect to the financial and other reporting obligations of the Clubs and the League, Team Payroll Range, Player Compensation Cost Redistribution System, the Entry Level System and/or Free Agency.

The 27-year-old rejected a $101 million, 12-year extension from the Atlanta Thrashers before being dealt to the Devils in February.

Kovalchuk had 41 goals and 44 assists last season, including 10 goals and 17 assists with the Devils.

He's kinda like the LO in LOL. A few years ago he may have just been the L, but he's lost a step or 9.

In the past you could count on a strong regular season and then a playoff meltdown.

Now, you just get the meltdown all season long.

He always did seem like a helluva nice guy though. So there's that.

I love Turco, it's always a win for Detroit when he's in net!


Couldn't Chicago have traded someone else and kept Niemi? 2.75 didn't seem that bad.

Niemi wasn't traded because of performance. He was completely embraced by the fanbase and, uhhh, won the Stanley Cup. It was purely a money thing. And unfortunate that it didn't work out.

seriously though, I'm assuming since no one wants to inherit Campbell's 7+ million a year contract for any worthwhile return, it really would have come down to Niemi or Sharp. Tough choice for anyone to make I'm sure...
