CBS Sports reports Kovalchuk turned down Kings 13 year deal at 84.5 mil until he was 40 - That's 6.5 per year cap hit

That would be something like:

  1. 11
  2. 11
  3. 10
  4. 10
  5. 8
  6. 8
  7. 6
  8. 6
  9. 4
  10. 4
  11. 3
  12. 2
  13. 1.5

Just a guess, but a pretty reasonable one, I think. You know, it occurs to me that an offer of $101MM over a super long term would be good in the PR war. Not that this is necessary. Like this:

  1. 11.8
  2. 11.8
  3. 11.8
  4. 10
  5. 10
  6. 10
  7. 8
  8. 8
  9. 8
  10. 4
  11. 2.6
  12. 2
  13. 1
  14. 1
  15. 1

$101MM over 15 years. Cap hit of $6.73MM. That's my final offer. Wait, what?
