The focus is obviously going to be on Kovalchuk, and I don't blame people for that. But how worthless is Vanderbeek at this point?

He basically bullied Lou -- who hated those frontloaded loophole contracts -- into re-signing Kovalchuk three years ago. Now Vanderbeek probably couldn't sign off on this "retirement" fast enough so he wouldn't have to shell out the $11 million Kovalchuk was owed for next season.

I don't know exactly how much money this guy has been hemorrhaging, but jeez what a terrible owner. And as Pens fans, we know terrible owners when we see 'em.
