The other shoe drops

Bolstered by a judge's completely arbitrary, unfounded ruling on the Kovalchuk contract, the NHL is now on a rampage, going after the front-loaded contracts of several other players.
So far, The NHL is going after Marc Savard, Chris Pronger, Marion Hossa, and Roberto Luongo.

Told you so.

Anyone still think the judge made a good ruling?

When your favorite player is torn from his team because the NHL has decided it doesn't like his contract, where will you stand?

Incidentally, I don't see Vincent Lecavalier, Eric Staal, or any other southern players on the NHL's inquisition list.

The NHL is turning into a f'n joke. There is a possibility that these teams will lose a 1st rnd draft pick for something that the NHL signed off on last season! Ya know if the KHL explored tv rights in the North America, you would see a lot of people jump ship, including this guy. I'm tired of Gary and his croney's bullsh*t.

The AHL needs to be on TV more. As do the junior hockey leagues (they are but only a random game on Fridays or Sundays here).
