#stlblues, Bouwmeester agree to terms on a five-year, $27 million extension.

Overpayment, IMHO

What a James Patrick he ended up being

Yeah, not a good deal for a guy just turning the dreaded 3-0 after a lackluster playoff.

The New Jersey Devils are likely to be taken over by the National Hockey League around the time the season begins next month when teams begin cutting payroll checks unless a buyer for the team quickly steps up, according to multiple sources.
Quote:
According to three sources, the NHL does not want the Devils to file for bankruptcy like the Phoenix Coyotes did in 2009. The Coyotes were recently sold for $170 million after going through an arduous lease renegotiation with the city of Glendale that kept taxpayers, players and fans in limbo for over three years.

Instead, the NHL would fund and operate the team while it sought a buyer. The Devils owe the league roughly $25 million and their payroll for the start of 2013-14 season is projected to be around $55 million.

Their salaries sit at $55M without Henrique

Do performance bonuses count against the cap?

As far as I know, the whole amount counts against the cap, incl. possible bonuses.

The whole amount counts, but teams can exceed the cap up to 7.5% in performance bonuses. Any amount exceeded gets tacked on next season as a bonus penalty.

At least they don't have to pay Kovy anymore. I heard on XM this morning that they still have over 200 mil in total debt and they missed the first payment on a newly structured agreement. Supposedly there are several groups looking to buy and get a deal done quickly, though Vanderbeek would still own a minority share.

76ers owner Josh Harris is supposedly buying the Devils. He is an investment guy who buys distressed properties.

Also I wouldn't be too excited just yet with this new ownership. This guy Harris is a businessman, not a philanthropist. He will do whatever it takes to make the team profitable, and if that should mean slashing payroll dramatically like he did with the 76ers, then the Devils might have some tough seasons ahead.

Who knows though, maybe he goes Pegula crazy and gives Lou a blank check so he overpays for every FA in sight. That is definitely a recipe for success. Rangers fans can attest to that...

I had a dream we traded MDZ and a 1st for Bogosian.

Also a 2nd round pick for Bfygulien.

The Sixers have the lowest payroll in the NBA. They traded away their best player to the Pelicans for futures. Andrew Bynum was a disaster and he is in Cleveland. Josh Harris hired former Garden president Scott O'Neil as Sixers CEO. Will O'Neil run the Devils too? You don't usually see an owner own two teams in different cities. Paul Allen owns the Seahawks and Trail Blazers. The DeBartolo family used to own the Penguins and the 49ers. Bill Davidson owed the Pistons and Lightning. The Sixers are breaking it down completely. $55M payroll for the Devils. Actual dollars spent. That will be one of the lowest in the NHL. Harris brought in his own people with the Sixers. Is Mr. Wall Street gonna genuflect when Lou walks into the room and continue to allow him carte blanche?

Devils give a whole new meaning to the word "distressed.".

According to a report in Sov Sport, via Dmitry Chesnokov, Evgeni Malkin’s father said that if his son ever decides to leave Pittsburgh it would be to join the Rangers or Montreal.

Well Malkin will not be a UFA until he's 36. So if the Rangers revert back to signing old vets past their primes he will be a great fit.

I think the possible tampering is a little more of a story than where Malkin may go when his contract is up, but i like your optimism

I personally think Montreal or Toronto would be great places to go to as players, but its kind of supriseing that when everything is said and done, nobody goes there.

I recon Malkin could force a trade to just about any place (a shortlist) he decides for, if he wants it.
