Note to Mr. Lou: do not hold press conference until the NHL approves the deal.
NHLPA should file grievance. If NHL wins grievance then Kovy plays in KHL. NHL loses good player.
I don’t see the issue with the contract – NFL contracts regularly dance around the salary cap, with rule-benders such as “unlikely to be achieved” incentives and converting roster bonuses to signing bonuses.
Also, I’m a little upset to see the Devils NOT have to ridiculously overpay for “the OTHER Russian superstar.”
@JRock, if you’re using the NHL as your paragon of fairness, we’ve already found the problem with your argument.
