New Kovy Update ("As the Kovy Turns")

12,307 posts in this topic

FWIW, here's (N)Єverson's story today:

The Ilya Kovalchuk watch resumes today after the left wing's agent said last night Kovalchuk had "narrowed down" his choices, with "details yet to be finalized."

The Devils appeared to have the inside track on signing the free agent to what one source suggested will be a seven-year, $60 million package.

...

The Devils have about $6 million in cap space available, counting 16 certain roster players. Aside from Kovalchuk, they also would have to fill six other roster slots, probably for a total of $4 million, leaving some $2 million for Kovalchuk. They can exceed the $59.4 million cap by $5.94 million until the regular season begins, at which time they must comply.

I hope I'm wrong, I just think the longer this goes, the lower the chances we sign him. (btw, up to 118 users)

That's what I feared because Lou, in the last few years, has seemed like the guy to say "this is my offer, accept it or we're done talking." Obviously I have no real way of knowing this and would happily be wrong, but I'm getting nervous. However, there's still a bit of optimism since NJ is still being mentioned as a possible destination for Kovy.

I'm not as thrilled with Lou's comments as everyone else. I think he is very disrespectful to people such as TG who is just trying to do his job. Lou just isn't interested in what his image is or letting the fans and media know that he's TRYING.

:rolleyes:

DON"T WORRY ABOUT MY CAP

I AM THE LAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Why do Canadians think Parise is suddenly available?! lol Jeff Finger and a 2nd rd pick for Zach Parise anyone? Afterall, with Kovalchuk signing theres NO WAY they can keep Parise. :rolleyes:

"Don’t worry about my cap.”

Random update. No reporters have heard anything (duh). Grossman and Lou have been silent.

There are people on HF now saying they have different sources that Kovy is going to sign today NOT with the Devils. Who knows if that means anything..

Ya know, if the Devils and Kovalchuk have agreed in principle to a deal but are waiting for a trade to clear cap space before putting pen on paper, what's to stop some other team from swooping in and inking him? Wouldn't surprise me. But even the KHL wouldn't surprise me at this point.

Link? I always enjoy reading the "friend of a friend's brother's sister-in-law's mother's grandmother's father's great grandson's dog's owner's friend..." source of a rumor.
