The NHL and the NHL Players Association have reached a deal that will see the contract between New Jersey Devils and forward Ilya Kovalchuk approved by the league.
In exchange for that approval, according to a QMI source, the league will get limits on contracts, probably limiting deals that take a player beyond the age of 40.

Anyway the NHL is run by a bunch of morons. I'm gonna do the same thing I did last year--save my money by supporting local hockey instead.

There is only 1 group of people who are to blame for teams wanting to offer these kinds of contracts... that's us, the fans.
We're the ones that will sit back, cheer because our team got a player like this, and we'll bend over and take it without complaint when our team charges an additional $10+ per ticket for the games.
If you're tired of the outrageous cost of going to games, we need to start standing up for ourselves.
