He'll get more in the KHL.

But seriously, whoever saw this coming must have a crystal ball hiding somewhere.

Let's make the most out of it, deal them Gionta or Desharnais, and sign Morrow. Now's our chance. They're going to be STARVING for offense.

Ryder, Zajac, Clowe, Loktionov... That's it for their "offense".

That one's all on Lou Lamoriello. STUPID decision from the very beginning to not forfeit it in 2012.

Most overrated GM in the business. Always said it.

Minor issue but they also get a .25 M cap recapture penalty for the next 12 years.

Why Ilya? Who cares about jersey! This guy is a star. I'm a fan of his. Sad to see NHL lose him.

If you're suggesting he'll come right back to the Devils, that would be even more flagrant CBA circumvention than his original contract was.

The whole situation is just bizarre. It does make you wonder if Lou has something up his sleeve here...just because it's so out of left field.

It's just unbelievable...and a hole in the offence is a huge understatement...they couldn't generate offense with him, now what are they gonna do??? Amazing...

The way I heard it, if he wants to come back to the NHL, his NJ contract is still in effect
