    Never thought I would have so much respect for Roenick.

At some point it's not worth it. It does suck, but I am not sure how much it was Kovy jumping or Lou pushing. Everyone else who wants to laugh...get your shots in. I'm a Devils fan, I'm used to it. This was an unwinable situation either way and the only way my team gets past it is like they tend to do...surprising folks. We are solid goaltending wise and have defensive prospects waiting in the wings. Reid Boucher is about the only real promising scorer in our system...but, once the Vanderbeek dilemma gets resolved, we will have a lot of room to pick up pieces. This year will be a tough season...but you never know. Short term loss equals long term gain.
    Reid Boucher is my co-workers nephew. Good kid.

    Good to hear. He better have some broad shoulders and a good head on top of them.

    Never met the family as they are in Michigan, just his uncle (my coworker, in Cali). I remember at the draft, I think 3 yrs ago now he was expected to go at #40 or so to Boston. His uncle use to show me the newspaper clips of Reid. I believe he played for Sarnia with Galchenyuk (sp). He will prob make itsooner rather than later.

    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.
