Let's not be negative nellys. This would be fun for everyone here, good move or not. We don't make moves like this. And we probably won't, but it's just seems fun to be invited to teh dance for a change.

So Spector still doesn't get that the Devils have tons of cap space?

Spector gets that the Devils don't want to use that cap space unless they absolutely have to.

As fun as this trade is to think about it, I think we all know it makes almost 0 sense. Lou would have to be totally out of his mind.

I just can't see this. The player, the price, the chips needed. I just don't see it. The Devils have *never* made a move like this.

How does it hurt to use it for deadline deals that don't count against next years cap? Kovalchuk has said he's going to go UFA so ATL is going to get a rental value for him.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I nearly sh!t myself when I saw this thread when I first came onto the site. I would be absolutely shocked if Kovalchuk became a Devil.

I doubt it happens, but holy hell would it be fun if it did! It would give the Devils their best two-line punch since they had the A-Line followed by Pepe-Gomer-Almo.

I would really be shocked, truly shocked, more than I have ever been as a Devil fan before, by this move if it were true.

Therefore, every alarm bell in my head is going off. Truly doubt it's happening.

the reason why the devils have been contending for the last 15 years is because we don't sell the farm for players like this. exactly like others said, we would be emulating the Sather philosophy in being able to buy the team

I never expected Gilmour, Mogilny or Arnott either.

Lou usually just makes depth trades, but every now and then he pulls one completely out of nowhere and surprises everybody.

This site says he said Flyers. :noclue:

According to Denis Potvin on XM radio Satellite this morning, the Philadelphia Flyers are very interested in acquiring Altanta Thrashers forward Ilya Kovalchuk.

I'd say the Mogilny deal was of a similar stature - Almo was the premier goal scorer of his time and we gave up what many considered to be a prime player in Morrison plus Denis Pederson. As long as we don't give up draft picks, I'm all for getting Kovy.

I don't think any of those trades would be as epic as Kovalchuk coming here.
