    Default Alfredsson speaks...hey Bettman

    Alfredsson didn't expect to play after 2012 - Cross Checks Blog - ESPN

    "When I did my last contract for four years ending in the [2012-13] season, I was asked to help the team manage the salary cap by adding on a extra year to my contract," Alfredsson said in an opening statement, according to TSN. "I agreed. Each side fully expected I would retire and not play the 2012-13 season.
    Just how is this not circumvention?

    They are probably letting it slide because it was only for a year and he actually played the season. If he had not, I would assume it would have been addressed by now.

    Sure. But that's in hindsight. When he signed it, everyone knew what that last year was. Now he admits it, so does the GM, and the nhl is all, "Nothing to see here. Don't wanna look in the past."

    More idiocy.

    Yeah, its 'intention' they were punishing the Devils for, not the end results. Double standards.

    Fully agree with Jersey here. Ottawa circumvented the salary cap and the league looked the other way. It doesn't matter if it was only intent or they got away with it. They should be help accountable same way NJ was. Complete double standard.

    Maybe this helps the Devils if they appeal to the league for that 1st rounder back.

    It would be a travesty if they lose that pick when stuff like this went on all over the league.

    I guess the league will be as consistent on this as they are hits to the head.
