According to ESPN.com, Ilya Kovalchuk's deal could be worth over $100 million over a stunning 17-years.

If true, Kovalchuk's deal would bring new meaning to the term "lifetime contract." He's already 27 years old, so a 17-year contract would take him into his mid-40s. Although the financial terms are not yet available, it's likely that such a deal would be heavily frontloaded. General Managers have used this tactic in recent years as a way of getting around the salary cap, although this would be the most extreme instance of it. We'll let you know when we have more information about Kovalchuk's contract.


The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired Simon Gagne from the Philadelphia Flyers for Matt Walker and a fourth round pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft.

With Gagne, the Lightning now have an explosive top-six that also includes the likes of Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos, and Steve Downie. Gagne is a point-per-game player, but he's been hampered in recent years by injury. However, with his contract expiring at the end of the 2010-11 season, the Tampa Bay Lightning are taking on a minimal amount of risk.

yeah its a money move we have been right on the cap for a couple years now. our management was probably thinking its either unload carter or gagne and they went with gagne which i would hesitantly do as well. and this may lead to us getting a goalie (possibly thomas)

Marty's gonna be gone soon too, so the devils will have some cap room in the coming seasons to resign Parise next season & possibly add another star, or pick up a goalie in free agency or thru a trade.....cuz when Marty leaves, they are kinda screwed at that position

being they opted not to resign Yan Danis, and instead signed an old, washed up Johan Hedberg.....that was the worst move they've made this off season

The NHL has rejected Ilya Kovalchuk's 17-year, $102 million contract with the New Jersey Devils on the grounds that it circumvents the NHL's salary cap.

Yo why exactly they reject that offer?
because its a loop hole..
he would make like 11 million for for a bit then make the league minimum towards the end of the deal.. thus making the cap hit only like 6 million even though he will receive upwards of 10million plus at the start of the contract

its bulls**t and im glad the league denied it.. but they should have blocked hossas 12 year deal..

for about 10 years his cap hit average to 10 million. then the last 6 years it drops to 550k cap hit. plus, once hes in his 11th year his no movement clause drops, which means even if he doesn't want to retire, they can throw him in the minors and bury his cap hit. its a total bulls**t contract.

i agree, hossas should have been blocked as well, but then again it isn't nearly as blatant as this.
