Even with all the rumors, what is the actual estimation of the odds of him coming here? I really think its a 1/50 at best.

Phil Esposito and Matt Laughlin just offered their two cents on XM's POWER PLAY:

PHIL:
"There is no way, zero chance of Kovy going to NJ. It would be extremely out of character for Louie Lams and go against his belief of giving up a boatload for a rental. He won't sign there because it would violate the unwritten law that no makes more than either Elias or Brodeur unless they EARN it in a Devils uniform."

MATT:
"Agreed. I can't see that as a possibility"

The only thing that's out of character is a big rental. We've traded for big players before (Gilmour, Mogilny) and we've sure traded for plenty of rentals but usually not a big player on the last year of his deal. Gilmour and Mogilny each had a year left.

So can we assume that even if the Kovalchuk deal falls through Lou is looking to do something big before the trade deadline?

Who do you think Lou goes after if this doesn't happen?

I think whoever Lou gets is someone that wasn't in any rumors at all. That's usually his style, and I can't see him switching it up too much. Probably a decent center no one thought about.

A deal is in the works for Marty Reasoner not Ilya Kovalchuk. Calm down.

I dunno, it's odd that the Thrashers' GM and assistant GM would come a combined three times to our games in a short period if all we were trading for was a Reasoner or Todd White type. Even Kubina probably wouldn't require this much deliberation, plus Atlanta claims they're not dumping anyway.

There is no credibilty to this what so ever but on NJ Fourms a poster claims to have a friend whos father know Kovalchucks agent's close partner and he was told by his friends father that they are just sorting the details out. No credibility but ya never know. The guy is from NJ.
