I'm more curious to see how the NHL counters this going forward, with the IIHF as well.
No, it wouldn't be Lou admitting he knew Kovalchuk would do this - why would he say that? He would be saying it's clear to him now that Kovy never intended to fulfill the contract in the first place, so there was no "meeting of the minds" at the beginning and thus no contract, so NHL can't penalize them.
Not a great argument but I can't see any other way they can get their pick back.
