Daly discusses Kovalchuk situation
TORONTO -- Monday night at the Molson World Hockey Summit, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly admitted that League officials met that day with a contingent from the New Jersey Devils to discuss the Ilya Kovalchuk situation.

Despite reports to the contrary, no new contract was submitted to the League.

"There was no new contract submitted," Daly said. "We talked conceptually."

According to reports, Devils owner Jeff Vanderbeek, GM Lou Lamoriello and Jay Grossman, Kovalchuk's agent, were in the meeting.

Kovalchuk became a free agent again earlier this month after the 17-year contract he signed with the Devils on July 19 was ruled null and void by an arbiter Richard Bloch.
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
