Hey remember that time when one of the most dynamic offensive forces in the NHL in his PRIME signed the most blatant CBA circumbenting contracts with the Devils in 2010? And Bettman punished them with having to choose what year in the following 4 to surrender a first round draft pick?
WELL GUESS WHAT. NOW THIS IS HAPPENING. ‘CHUK RETIRES OUTTA GODDAMN NOWHERE TODAY AND LOU ALREADY MADE THE DECISION TO FOREFIT THE PICK NEXT YEAR.
Remarkable. Got a whole lot outta that awesome 15 year deal. One might say ” well now we have $77 million to sing whoever else..” youre not replacing Ilya Kovalchuk. Not happening. Unless its with a stud first round draft pick…oh wait..
