New Kovy Update ("As the Kovy Turns")

12,307 posts in this topic

Interesting...I'd really like to see Zach & Travis on matching (in years, not salary) long term contracts within the near future. Because if the popular trend continues, and one (or worst case scenario, both) leave in their first chance at UFA status...the devils are screwed

Yeah screw this world will end in 2012 crap, I'm worried about 2013.

I think the second Kovy signs with LA Lou should lock up Zach long term.

I agree 100%. Lou's contract should be in front of Parise before Kovy's signature has dried in LA. No need to mess around with this stuff.

@helenenothelen have been hearing past few days Kings and Kovalchuk are "closer" but not done because of some issues...trying to learn what "issues" are...

What's with Russian ladies and singing careers? Apparently Mel Gibson's Russian lady-friend wants a singing career too. Is there a big market for slavic singers?

Kovy's decision is between LA and NJ. I think that means part of him wants to be here.

Not really, there's a difference between "Part of me wants to be there" and "It wouldn't kill me to be there". One is want, the other ambivalence.

The Devils "TO DO" list for the next 7-10 days:

1. Check to see if Kovalchuk signs with LA. If yes, say "whew" and move on with a smile on your face.

2. Check if Johnny Mac detects any remnants of sour attitudes from last season. If so, go to the drawing board, and make creative decisions.

3. If the "sour attitudes" prevail from the likes of Langenbrunner, Rolston, etc., find suitable takers for them.

4. If Lou can find the spark, perhaps move those characters to acquire guys the likes of Kaberle, LeCavalier, Spezza, etc.

5. Or, just throw your hands up and say "let's hope we're not as bad as the Nets this year"...

I'd still take an indifferent kovy. Let him grow to love the organization. One would hope the 'winning' mentality is contagious, and he'd learn to appreciate what the devils have going on.

This country has a market as vast as the universe for talentless female pop singers as long as they're hot. If these ladies look anything like Anna Kournikova, their first records will go Gold before a song is even recorded.

LeCavalier probably ain't gonna leave Tampa and Spezza is too mucho much!

I saw her (Kournikova) last Saturday night on The Graham Norton Show on BBC America (fantastic show BTW), and she is as dumb as a clump of dirt. And not that good dirt you can buy in 1 pound bags in supermarkets either, the crappy little league outfield kind.

The Sens think Gonchar makes Spezza a 100-110 point player, that's one of the main reasons they got Gonchar. Spezza isn't leaving Ottawa anytime soon.

But she's hot. And plays(played) tennis. So she's obviously excused.

Wasn't spezza being shopped earlier this offseason? Or was that just another quality unsubstantiated HF boards rumor?

I don't see how Gonchar will increase Spezza's production. He's not a crash-the-net, deflect shots kind of center. He was shopped but I think his stock went down considerably last year especially since he only managed to play 60 games.

On the other hand we can always use more Italian guys on the Devils.

I don't know, but I remember the Sens GM excitedly talking about Gonchar and Spezza on one of those short NHL.com vids after the signing.

To be honest though, not many defenseman are. :)

I'm talking about Spezza crashing the net. When the GM talks about Gonchar increasing Spezza's point production I see Gonchar doing that by firing shots(on the powerplay) from the blueline with Spezza deflecting the shot. I don't see Spezza being a true center by setting up a lot of goals for others. He's not a Joe Thornton type center.

Neverson: "Kovalchuk 50/50 to sign with Kings"

That Neverson quote is about as useful as sayin Kovy will play hockey next season.

He is gone already in my eyes, we should move to next

The Devils have never gotten the respect they deserve, and I like it that way.

We have always been an underdog no one gives us a chance and some how through all the negativity

still end up winning. Keep Kovy we need hunger not money hungry. IMO

You know what'd be simply EPIC?

If, after all this time, and now that (nearly) everyone (including myself) believes he's as good as gone, he turns around and signs here. Doubtful..but boy, I'm pretty sure this thread & forum would explode.

Don't stop believing friends :evil:

Id be pissed, He is fun to watch but so is the circus,,in a twisted kind of way :rolleyes:

after all the great posts here I have realized what a non team plater type he is, yes he will put people in seats but I would much rather have cups.. IMO
