Still, Lamoriello said he "absolutely" rolled his eyes when the Islanders signed Rick DiPietro to a 15-year contract in 2006 and when Washington signed Alex Ovechkin to a 13-year contract in 2008. He also said he "absolutely" rolled his eyes when Kovalchuk’s contract was completed. So why would he sign Kovalchuk to such a deal? "You’d have to speak to ownership about that."

Loophole Lou on how he "might" agree these deals aren't good for the league. Full quote and more at Tom Gulitti's Fire & Ice blog. UPDATE: Obviously, the topic in comments has turned to discuss the NHL's rejection of the contract. For theories as to why, follow along... UPDATE 2: Quisp at Jewels from the Crown is all over this with hilarity and insight. Spend your lunch break there.
