Larry Brooks: Bettman's throwing a tantrum


Namely because he covers the Rangers for the NY Post, Larry Brooks isn't exactly held in high regard by Devils fans. However, his take on the NHL's rejection of the Ilya Kovalchuk contract in the NY Post is a must-read for all who are following this story. In it: -Brooks states the contract doesn't violate the CBA (something you already know if you read the past few days here, or read the CBA yourself) -Brooks explains why the NHL is really just hammering the PA here, that this process is a no-lose for the NHL and exorts the PA to get it together. -Brooks smacks an agent for suggesting escrow as a problem. -And so much more. This article's got something for everyone; so let everyone know about it. (And if you must talk Kovalchuk, talk about it here. Facts are appreciated, tired conjecture won't be.) Hat-tip: HF Boards Again, when the Devils fans are praising Brooksie, it's something worth reading.
