lollll that was good
yeah, Schneider is the most shocked NJD right now.
Never thought I would have so much respect for Roenick.
OK, I've been thinking about this more. Why do the Devils only save $52 Mil? Why not the $77 Mil they ain't paying the guy? Does IK get some of this money? I wouldn't think so since he retired, right? I'm not up all all the CBA rules...
Also, on Roedick: He's a turd. He DID nothing for the Kings and got money. IK at least got his team to the finals. Maybe that's not worth the $25 million he got paid over the last few years but still...yet somehow IK is a bad guy for retiring? I don't get it. Seems to me a lot better than loafing the next 10 years and getting paid for it. Roedick...hell...he should have retired in 2003...and did us and his "unfit" skates a favor.
As to the Kings "dodging" this. To me, it was evident they "dodged" it on June 11, 2012 not now. If IK had retired on the Kings it would mean the same thing...the Kings wouldn't be paying out the money. So I don't get this one either.
Win Win for everyone involved. Lou saves a ton of money and now can rebuild. Kovi will make a ton where he grew up and where his family wants to be.
