Ilya Kovalchuk, Chicago Blackhawks, and More NHL Rumours: August Ninth

Remember, these rumours may not be from great sources. They are simply all I can find from reasonable sources.

Ilya Kovalchuk apparently had his contract with the Devils reinstated. This is terrible news in my opinion, as Bettman has plenty of evidence to show a clear violation because Kovy will retire long before the contract expires.

Apparently the source was wrong about Ilya Kovalchuk. Apparently the arbitrator ruled in favour of the NHL. The article is from the Toronto Sun:

Do not cite other cases to show this is fair. This time there is enough proof because Kovalchuk will definitely retire before the contract expires.

If nothing else, it is common sense proof, which Bettman should have looked at when the Marian Hossa contract leaked. The Pronger contract is fine, because his cap hit stays whether or not he retires.

Willie Mitchell is nearing his decision. He is trying to choose between the Sharks and the Capitals. This player is good for both teams, because both need a tough shut down defenseman, as most of their defenseman are too soft.
