Ten bucks says it's Chris Kovalchuk, formerly of the Brampton Capitals in 2001-2002. No goals, but 28 penalty minutes in nine games! :lol:

I get annoyed when people say he's not a "Devils-type player"(what does that mean?) or "he isn't needed." Last I checked, the Devils NEED to score GOALS. And like britoon said, he isn't just a one-dimensional player anymore.



LOL. Have you seen Kovalchuk play lately????

It was just a few weeks ago that everyone in hockey was talking about how lazy he was and that he is not captain material.

Anyway, I feel confident that Potvin was being sarcastic because he watches Kovy and knows that Lou would never be interested in such a one-dimensional player who doesn't care about winning. FYI: Players have to care about winning which is the definition of a Devils-type player.

Yes, that would be the one. The same Kovalchuk who is too lazy to back check, skates only half the ice, a career -83, and could care less about winning since he makes $7 million a year. Yes that the one.

Having him on the Devils, (assuming Lou has lost his mind and guts our roster) essentially makes us the Rangers.


He's a +2 this season while in a team that can't stop anyone. All stats have different faces, I don't know what you think, but I believe Parise would have a tough time getting a +20 in Atlanta

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

The only problem is he is another left wing. Anyone know if he can play right wing just as good? We would have 3 elite left wings..

Actually, I think he said "New Jersey".
Heck, at this point, I don't know what to think.

If you google Kovalchuck the first thing that comes up is a Flyers rumor from 11 hrs ago.

I'd imagine Elias would go back to center or Kovy could go to right wing in a Elias-Zubrus-Kovy line
