Thank god the arbitraitor sided with the NHL when it came to this deal. Lou Lam basically found a loophole in the Salary Cap and it would've changed deals for years to come.
If it was just the fact that Kovalchuck was getting paid till he was 47 or something ridiculous like that, thats fine...but it lowered his average to about 6 mil cap hit per year. Thats almost as much a Tim Thomas!
Hopefully Kovy reaches a fair deal with NJ now. But i can honestly see him signing a 1 year 10 million dollar deal with the Rangers.
