You spelled 'boredom' wrong.

Lol it was on the right side of the main page under "recommended". No digging at all

And the reality about Kovy, he didn't necessarily want to be a Devil. Three teams made offers for him, two when you immediately eliminate the Islanders (compared to a reported 15-20 for Zach). But the Kings offer wasn't even in the same ballpark. And if Kovy's hometown was in the NHL, I bet he'd be looking to sign there too. Not saying Kovy can't be everything people want him to be here or close to it, but we don't need to make sh!t up about a great player and his time in NJ to put Kovy on a pedestal.

Ha, all I knew was this:


"They build it up just to burn it back down

 They build it up just to burn it back down"


Everyone was so angry with Zach that they built up Kovy to something he was not to feel a lot better about the situation. That was a mistake. And once, just like people who said all these great things about Zach's game only to change their mind, and say he didn't do crap in the playoffs or the Cup run....have done the same with Kovy, now talking about how he wasn't even that good to begin with and was lazy, etc. Not everyone, but a lot of people.


I love the Devils and sports, but I rarely ever get emotionally attached to players or care what they do with their lives. I was gutted when Kovy retired. But never angry at the player. His life. His decision. Not going to try and walk in his shoes.

To be fair he could have signed in the KHL when he was a FA last time (and threatened to do so) but he didn't.  If we didn't have a lockout odds are this thread isn't bumped.  But yeah people were making Kovy out to be more than what he was regardless.  I mean people acted like his contract showed he was selfless because the cap hit was small which wasn't the case at all - he got his money over the first ten years of the deal and the Devils paid for it dearly, so it wasn't exactly selfless.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

This was the most frustrating part about Kovy leaving. That cup run had so many people buy into Kovalchuk and defend him. Just have us something to believe in. I'm still more sad than mad to be honest.

Kovy is now 'leading' SKA with  1A 0G in 2GP with a minus 1 rating despite his team having a plus 6 goal differential. :P
