I'm sure if the Devils can figure out a way to take roughly two years off of that contract then the NHL would be fine with it.

Kovalchuk will still probably be a Devil. Unless LA steals NJ's idea and gives him a similar deal.
Granted it looks bad in the sense that the NHL is not acting consistently, but props for finally taking a stand against this buoyshiot. It had to happen sooner or later.
