Ilya has the final word, not his agent. If IK says "I want to resign with the Devils for league minimum", he has no choice but to go with what his client wants. His agent wants the best contract for his player cause he's getting a % of that same contract and if his agent had "carte blanche" as you say, he would've taken the Atlanta offer and ended it right than and there... but it didn't happen.

Kovy is the one that will decide were he plays and if it's NJ, he'll take whatever offer Lou seems reasonable and if IK or his agent dissagree... he'll sign elsewere, period.
