Not sure that they could live with the 6.8 Cap hit, or how they could structure the deal to be anything but a little better than the Kings.

If Bettman was ever miffed by booing L.A. fans, wait till he goes to a Devils game.

The bottom line for me is did Kovy know, or did he not know.
If he did not know, fire everyone...
If he knew... go to hell!

Oh I agree but the options we were given, I felt 50% was a little high. There was no %5 chance or I would have said that.

I'm working from the premise that NHLPA wants the NHL and NJ to work this out between them. I don't think NHLPA wants the IK contract to interfere with or set the tone for new CBA negotiations.
As to the money... I picked the Hossa deal as the sample because it's already in play. It's passed muster. NJ and Grossman could push the envelope a bit, add a year, taper it off a bit sharper, but I don't think they can move very far off that model.
At this point, I'm not sure DL is really a player for this guy. Would signing him send a strange message to our core? After all, he picked another team. What do you think?
