Despite the NHL’s reopened investigations into the front-loaded contracts of Philadelphia’s Chris Pronger, Boston’s Marc Savard, Chicago’s Marian Hossa and Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, one unnamed agent believes even with the league’s newfound aggressiveness on the heels of the declined Ilya Kovalchuk deal — the NHL will not cancel the already accepted contracts.
“The NHL isn’t going to do anything with these deals. Nothing is going to happen,” the agent told the Ottawa Sun. “They’ve been trying to investigate most of these deals for a year.
“I can tell you they certainly aren’t going to rip up a contract that has already been signed and approved by the league.”
