Whether they knew or not doesn't really matter to me. Just look at the contract.

Lou said they were following "precedent" when in reality they were setting it. He made that comment and acted like he mirrored the Hossa deal. What he did was take the Hossa deal and made it even worse.

This should have been a great announcement for fans. Then the whole thing fell through and now it's just an embarassment at this point until it's resolved. For me it felt like Game 7 against Carolina all over again. So high up only to come crashing back down.

Wow...not only am I not embarrassed, but at this point, I've moved on. When something happens great, but I'm not letting this Kovy thing consume my life and resent this organization for it.

And comparing this to Game 7 against Carolina...

i agree. this isn't an embarrassment whatsoever.

and for those that are ragging on the casual fans that are only going to buy a ticket package if we get kovy, i say so what? they're a casual fan, and if they need a little more to commit to spending so much money on tickets, than that's their decision. kovalchuk gives this team a better chance of winning, i don't blame people that are on the fence with whether to commit to a lot of tickets or just buy them one game at a time for wanting to know if we're going to keep kovy or not. to a lot of people (me included) dropping 1k+ on tickets isn't exactly an easy thing to do.
