This has to be one of the more shocking events I can ever remember in the NHL. Wow... if the devils can't get that pick back it make it even worse as they're almost certainly a lottery team without him.
I can only assume this is his slimy way of wriggling off to the KHL. Though I suppose simply assuming that isn't entirely fair.
This really, really screws the Devils. To think that they built their team around this guy, gave up all of those picks because of his asinine contract and potentially even chased away Parise, in the process.
