Seriously. What if the Devils had already moved salary today (not that Lou would be that stupid, but theoretically), and then this happened? SOL?

It is funny that it happened after the press conf. I'd imagine they'll get together and find a contract that works, but in the future for these big signings they need to have league officials there to approve it quickly.

They had to draw the line somewhere. The contracts were getting progressively more extreme, and now the line is drawn.
