Although this was pushed to the side once Richard Bolch came down with his ruling in favor of the NHL, it’s back now.â†µ
The New Jersey Devils have been fined $3 million (which will not count against the cap), their 2011 third round pick and a first round pick. When it comes to the First round pick the Devils have the option to chose when to lose it, over a period of the next four years. So they will lose a first round pick in either the 2011, 2012, 2013 or 2014 NHL Entry Draft.â†µ
Phew … OK, now this saga is officially over.
