I've sat next to a group of guys who basically spent the entire game sh!tting on kovy the entire game until he scored. They were all cheering then but excused it as "finally living up a little bit to his contract"

It was in section 21


That must be the Kovy haters corner then cause I moved my season tickets from section 22 to a different area cause there were so many people hating on him. I couldn't deal with it anymore and I think the view sucks. My seats were in section 21 prior to the price changes a few years ago.

I just hope the Kovy hate doesn't become 'worse' now that Zach's gone, something else for the foolish ones to blame him for.

I have finally accepted Zach is gone, and have updated my signature I've had for years and years.

I still dont know what to do with my framed autograph, signed stick and rare rookie cards (some big bucks there).
Don't want to be irrational... but boo.

Sell the Zach stuff and replace it with Kovy stuff. Some yahoos in Minny will pay you big bucks for the ZP items.

I like Gio, but not at 5 mil.

Its only two more years including this one though. The bigger problem I have with Gionta right now is he was hurt the majority of last year and is 33 years old. We're well under the cap where his contract wont be that bad + we have stuff coming off the books in a big way next year.

I would only be for his return if we cant get anything better.

Gio was a pretty good net crasher when he was with us.

Yep, thats apparently what they want. The main thing Ive heard is the center, so expect Henrique or Josefson just to get the ball rolling.

The problem I have with Ryan, despite what Anaheim wants, is that he'll be UFA in 2 years, and I bet my bottom dollar that he runs to the Flyers. He's from NJ, but from the evil part of the state when it concerns hockey fans.

No way should we give up Josefson or Henrique for Ryan who will demand a huge contract when he hits free agency. If they want defensemen then we can talk.

I would be willing to part with Josefson...

Henrique is an untouchable

I still have faith in Jacob he seems to be a really smart player. He just needs to stay healthy.

I just hope the Kovy hate doesn't become 'worse' now that Zach's gone, something else for the foolish ones to blame him for.

My favorite was some guy in Sec 119 screaming Kovalsuck right before Kovys hat trick game against the Isles. Still amazes me that people heckle him.

If we have any dealings with the Ducks I'd prefer to go all out for Perry next season.

No. Restructuring contracts is against the CBA. Could change I guess with the new one, but as of now its not possible.

And I agree with others that Henrique or Josefson is not a good idea. I'm not prepared to give up on Josefson and Henrique is absolutely untouchable.

Ryan is a good player, but in two years he's going to run to Philly. Thats essentially his hometown (Cherry Hill). Imagine how much worse that will be than what we just went through. A player running home, but to the damn Flyers.

Gionta is by far the best player to knock puck off mid air... he's simply unreal
