The Devils wanted to give up their 2012 pick but missed the deadline.
They look even more dumb then. I don't know how Lou kept his job over that miff.
The team definitely deserved this fate with the contract they tried to give out, and even the one that the league eventually allowed them to have.
Kovy will play in the KHL, and then I bet will come back. Just gross.
And in the end, its the fans(NJ fans) that suffer the most. I would boycott the Oilers if they pulled this kind of BS.
