Agreed, better for him to play as a top liner in the KHL than being constantly in the doghouse with the Jets. Misused a lot imo

Why didn't they trade him?

Not 100% sure on this, but its possible after his KHL deal is over I think they still hold his NHL rights.

That is true, I have seen that stated. They currently hold his rights. When they hold them until, though, I don't know.

There's no way the NHL will make them do that. It could very well be a top 5 pick at this point.

Think Feaster just found himself some interest in Cammy.

did kovy actually just quit on the NHL? he's just turning into a great 2-way force in the league...

devils are royally screwed if they still have to forfeit this year's pick lol, and the unwarranted Matteau hate would never stop...

Considering that the Devils have to forfeit their 1st rounder, that could quite possibly put us ahead one spot in the draft as I don't think it's too unlikely that they will finish below us.

I'd be weeping blood if I was a Devils fan right now.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, but I feel kind of guilty being happy about it.

Well New Jersey just took a Major blow to the stomach. He's only 30.... Hopefully other Russians don't follow his example and leave I know Datsyuk considered going to the KHL but after he extended this year that seems Unlikley. Though I think Ilya may be back one day.

Dustin Brown signs a 8 year 47 million deal (cap hit of 5.875) and Glencross's contract looks amazing compared to it.

In the last 3 year years,

Brown has 140 points in 210 games for a ppg of .667

Glencross has 117 points in 186 games for a ppg of .696

Brown has 68 goals in those 210 games.

Glencross has 65 goals in those 186 games.

Brown is more physical than Glencross but not nearly worth more than double.

The cap hit is a little high, but acceptable. Brown was always going to be a bit overpaid after his last contract, which was widely deemed to be a well below market value.

But the term is brutal. By the time he hits 32-33, it's unlikely he'll be able to continue his physical style of play. By year 5 or 6 of this contract, I wouldn't be surprised to see his name pop-up as a buyout candidate.

So strange. Metropolitan is a weird name and Atlantic isn't relevant to the majority of those teams...
