I'm moving this thread into the Hall of Fame soon... think we get to 300 pages before then?

I'd love to see it happen (mostly coz that's what I predicted), but today's press conference felt a bit like the last day of school before everyone heads off for summer vacation.

i think you have to wait until it goes a day w/o a post first - there could be stragglers.

I'm counting on those stragglers to get us there!

Ok i thought Canadians were supposed to be intelligent fans. So why then is every comment on tsn questioning how Kovy will play in his 40's?

We're not. We overanalyze things way too much.

or we change the name of it to just "As the Kovy Turns" and use it to praise or chastize him during the season after every game. it could reach epic scale

Still stunned we got him; it's like a dream. An offensive powerhouse with an insane wrist shot now a Devils lifer by choice....... I think I'm going to buy some lottery tickets today :)

Hey, I'll jump on the Kovalchuk Army bandwagon. This guy has to be good for us. Defense wins games, but OFFENSE makes it exciting to watch. We need more than just Zach out there. All they have to do is double team him and there goes our secret weapon. :koolaid:

Weird quotes from Lou:

TGfireandice

Lamoriello said Kovalchuk contract is legal under CBA, but "we shouldn't have these."

Lamoriello said "absolutely" rolled his eyes at DiPietro and Ovechkin contracts and also "absolutely" rolled his eyes at Kovy's deal.

Why did he do it? "You'd have to speak to ownership about that...this is a commitment and a decision they wanted to make.."

Lou's boss is taking the heat... make things work better going forward... Lou 100% orchestrates the whole thing.

need to do the same with Parise before they change the rules

don't believe, "it wasn't up to me" bs from Lou

Think about it. The league now can't go after Lou if he supports rules against these types of contracts in the future. ANd if Kovy doesn't work out, it's not on Lou.

With all this stuff going on with Kovy I am interested to hear what Zach has to say. Parise should still become the face of the Devils when Marty is gone, as well as wear the "C". Going on the Devils website and seeing all the Kovy stuff everywhere I'd like Zach to know we haven't forgotten about him.

Where is msweet's post quoted in this post? I kind of agree. I mean -- that's part of the liar thing. You can't be sure because you didn't HEAR him say it. Lou has a liar face - actually two both involve much sincerity. His fan liar face is this bewildered smile, like he's part of your group "Hmm, I should say, what in the world IS going on here - I'll go see what I can do" :whistling: HEY I SAW THAT WHISTLE SMILIE LOU!! Then there's the mock anger/stern liar face. Reading the quotes from Amberite I see that one.. he tilts his head a little his eyes bug out with a false intensity.

BUT by the same token I can see him not wanting to sully the game with star treatment and stuff... but you all just know he secretly kind of likes it -- he may feel a little dirty -- but nothing a good hot shower won't take care of :evil:

I was adding to Msweet's point. I'm not really sure where I stand on this. What goes down in the Devils Lair is really unknown.

I could definitely see Lou not wanting to play the "star-player game" and give a ridiculously long contract to one player. Maybe Lou's comments hinted at Lou's frustration with JVB.

Then again, Lou is always well in control of his emotions and he never really gives a straight story to the media. Instead his words are always filled with symbols, metaphors and foreshadowing. It's not like Lou, to just point the finger at JVB like that, even if it was true.

Think about it. If it really was JVB's call only, would Lou ever let us know that?

Interviewer: Mart is the face of the franchise. Does this signing make you the face of the franchise.

Kovy: NO way. You have to deserve to be the face of the franchise and [brodeur] deserves everything.

I love Kovy. :evil:

He also basically said that they went to LA because his wife wanted to.
