This is a wonderful day!!! The NHL has voided the contract that Ilya Kovalchuk and Lou Lamoriello signed. I have nothing against Kovalchuk, hell he’s a wonderful player and should get every penny he can from NHL owners. However, there are two huge reasons why this recent turn has me smiling:
- Lou Lamoriello didn’t get his way! He finally screwed himself over, like Del Griffith on the side of the highway.
- ALL of the other NHL fans get another week to see what it was like for Oiler fans last season. We waited for Dany Heatley to say “no” for an eternity. Now the other 29 teams can see how that tastes this summer. Enjoy.
I am not strictly speaking a spiteful person, and I do know Lou will figure out another way to make it work. But this is too rich. I’m having a beer, and then I’m having another one.
