The NHL did not reverse anything with Kovy's deal, it set precedent re: cap circumvention. That other teams had been allowed to get away with it before is unfortunate, but the league had to take a stand somewhere. I really hope they address this more in the new CBA. As for Thomas, the league should take a CLOSE look at any deal, and if he doesn't play, both teams should be levied with penalties.
