I'm not advocating dealing for him. I'm just sitting back to watch what Leafland has to do -- using the compliance on Komisarek and not Liles could be biting Nonis in the nether bits to the tune of nearly a million a year for SIX YEARS. I am mildly amused by this thought.

Hopefully they find a really tan version of Pegula. I grew up with the Stevens Devils offing the Leafs, Sens and Flyers, so I have a pretty decent soft spot for that franchise.

I'm looking forward to such headlines as "Devils sell their soul to Bettman"

It does make one wonder if the Devils financial problems played into Kovalchuk's retirement.

I think it played into Kovalchuk being able to "retire" to the KHL while under a valid NHL contract.

If the Devils didn't have the financial issues, they could have played hardball with Kovy and said he can really retire, but that means not playing pro hockey anywhere else.

Also, does his relationship with the owners have something to do with it? As in, he took a route to help Vanderwhatshisname out?

Maybe.

I do buy the homesick story after the lockout. But, we'll never really know.

The NHL & NHLPA agreed to new goalie pad sizing rules.

It will be interesting to see how this affects Enroth.

Bettman denies that the NHL is taking over the Devils.

I agree----him playing in the KHL over the lockout was a huge factor in this.

I think alot of people seemed to have forgotten that back in the early 80s when europeans were rather rare....a few came over as an adventure. When they got older they would usually opt to leave the league and go back to play in their home country when they were on the other side of 30.

Can't imagine the impact on him will be noticeable. His 5-hole can't really get much bigger, and he's already used to not taking up much net at his size.

I feel like the new pad regulations would have a much bigger impact on larger goalies, who are used to -- between their size and the pads' -- not having to move much to make most of their saves.

Given that the size is proportional to your body, the taller goalies will lose less than a shorter goalie that traditionally has had a huge thigh rise.

Lundqvist is the poster child for this. His pads will be waaaaaay shorter than they were a few years ago with the 38" max. He reportedly had 34+4" pads previously. My guess is that he might be down to a 34+1" or 34+2". That's 4 to 6 less inches of pad in the 5 hole for him.

Not sure if anyone's interested, but what the hell...

Steve Montador signed with my local team, Medvescak Zagreb, which will be playing in the KHL.

Those road trips are going to be awesome.

At least he proved himself in 2011 when he put up 52 points
