I like this trade, I'm just a little scared of our D right now.

Indeed................. I think people are just excited the Devs made a splash.

I'm not sure about this.

Except our GM isn't completely retarded.

Who would like to see a big slap in the face to the thrashers by Bergfors signing with the Devils next season??

RFA, very little chance.

It's 4 am now, I guess it's time for bed. :giggle: Man, I don't think I'll truly believe this until I wake up tomorrow morning and Kovy is still a Devil!

from @wyshynski Waddell: Other trades had bad contracts. Looked at several deals. End of day, Devils offered "most assets"

So the funny thing is... we won because we didn't try to dump Rolston or Zubrus.

And Lou didn't sign someone just to sign someone this past offseason leaving the space to take on a fair amount of salary.

And since the Devils gave up Oduya they still have cap room for other deals.

they obviously need to get a defenseman in early march. :lol:

the funniest thing about this deal is Salmela and his confidences. I got even money he gets benched halfway through Friday's game.

Bergfors gave this trade up... by whining to the owner of the restaurant. pretty amazing. :lol: I was actually disappointed when it wasn't done this afternoon because I thought it was pretty certain at that point

We all know this deal was really about getting Salmela back they just threw in Kovie to sweeten the deal.

watch the islanders get him. i wouldLOL

If they had the resources, they would have. That crappy SMG deal along with the arena uncertainty makes it impossible to bring in a star of that magnitude. Plus Wang's a weenie. In terms of their farm, they easily could've given Atlanta a great deal. Too bad they're in Hempstead because Kovalchuk would've been a great draw. Imagine putting JT91, Okposo and Bailey around him. So, did Manta post yet?

Holy Crap... I told my friend today that I'll eat my hat if this happens. I firmly believe that this won't happen, and if it does then I'll post a picture of me eating my hat. Sarge, if Oduya gets traded then you're taking Neids from me in our drinking game.
