DeMarcus Cousins didn’t do anything, the teams have no bad blood, and there’s no distinct advantage to a foul call (which didn’t come anyway).

While yesterday’s sports headlines were dominated by Euro 2012, Wimbledon, and the NBA Draft, there was some big hockey news that might have slipped by the wayside. Two blockbuster contracts were handed out, with Pittsburgh signing Sidney Crosby to a 12-year/$104 million contract, and the Los Angeles Kings handing Jonathan Quick a 10-year deal worth $58 million. Here’s why those contracts — and other NHL deals like them — boggle our minds.
