Lamoriello statement on Kovalchuk signing
New Jersey Devils President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello issued the following statement Wednesday in response to the National Hockey League's rejection of the team's contract with Ilya Kovalchuk:

"We are extremely disappointed that the NHL has decided to reject the contract of Ilya
Kovalchuk. The contract complies with the terms of the Collective Bargaining
Agreement. We will have no further comment until the process outlined in the CBA is
complete."

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
