Cory Schneider straight up for #9 from NJ. Wow.
deep in the dark ages
hawks still have $9.5 mil in cap space and only one notable hole (2nd line center).
All in all, I'd rather have Bickell at $4 million a year than Bolland at $3.3 million, and it's not even close.
So the Hawks have about $10M to spend?
I think the Devils are winning (...) the worst deal so far. Ryan Clowe for $4.85 for five years
Alfredsson to Detroit,
If someone can explain Boston trading Seguin in a rational way, I'd love to hear it.
He's 21 and none of the offenses in their own right seem truly awful but there is a trend here.
Very happy with the Devils day, notwithstanding overpaying Clowe.
Does the age of the team scare you?
and of his 15 goals in 2013, 10 were scored in the first 14 games (10-6-16)
Also, his current cap hit is less than this Rask deal, and he probably wouldn't sign that.
Oh, also LM, the Devils re-signed your boy Zidlicky for another year.
So can you experts give me a thumbnail explanation of what I'm missing? Crayon illustrations are welcome.
The Devils can't get out of 12 years of cap hits by pretending this is a retirement if its not.
Monk can tell you much better, but as an outsider, my opinion of Kovy went way up after he left the Thrashers (and I liked the Thrashers). He started taking regular shifts on the PK and generally playing like someone who understood that defense is a thing that exists. He someone increased his minutes, despite being one of the most heavily used forwards even in Atlanta.
I think the shock ads to the reaction from Devil's fans, and the team is unquestionably diminished in the short term. In the long term, they're probably better off. Also, the Devils lost their next 1st round draft pick because of his original contract, and that is not worth 3 years of Kovy.
So it is a shady attempt to let him leave without taking the cap hit
The Devil's could do the same with Kovalchuck, but instead their going through a retirement charade to avoid the full cap hit.
So it is a shady attempt to let him leave without taking the cap hit. I doubt the league will let them get away with it.
It also means the Devils lose any rights to Kovalchuk, so it's not a charade to them either.
What does termination entail, exactly? The contract ceases to exist?
