Why wouldn't they? The punishment was for breaking the NHL rules. That still happened, and the punishment should still stick. Although I am sure Lou will argue til he's blue in the face with Bettman.
I agree with that. Certainly at the time of the contract, they were breaking the rules. But I am wondering if Lou might say that Kovalchuk clearly never had any intention of fulfilling his end of the contract....which might invalidate the contract.
