  1. It’s front-loaded, that’s all I’ve heard. The actual paperwork is probably long enough to be considered a novel.

  2. It’s amazing how the GM’s keep giving these massive contracts to players. I know you want the player but isn’t there a point where you think enough is enough. 17 years is unbelievable, I thought it was like a typo or something when I read it at first. These players are very good players, but as they get older it’s going to pose a problem as their play declines.

    • Yeah, they ended up rejecting it. At the time I wrote this, it hadn’t been rejected. Thank God! That was a ridiculous move by both N.J. and Kovalchuk.
