I've been absent from this board for a long long time and I'm guessing everyone forgot that I always stated that Kovalchuk was a waste, a mistake, and I got a thorough thrashing for it back when he came to the team.  NO one listened they were excited to see when Kovy would take a dump, how emotional it was when he scrapped his glove across the ice when he scored a supposed "big goal", and how big one eye from the other which perhaps made him as "sick" as he was.  I was not the only one, but people failed to see the writing on the wall.  They wanted him to be the messiah when all he really did was make a mess.  The Devils organization should take some blame for it, but Kovalchuk and his mother should too.  No matter what kind of player you are you don't quit, and this guy quit from day one.   He was only after the money and nothing more.   I still laugh at how wrong people were and yet they never probably said, "you know what... so and so was right and I need to say 'I'm sorry'."

although i felt some resentment with what he did and how he did it.. iam going to miss him as a player on the ice (except for all of those times he would constantly be gliding around doing nothing when i felt like he should have really been putting in more of a hustle to get to the puck) we no longer have that one go to guy to say alright were in a tight spot we need one more goal with the period coming to an end and kovys on the ice.. i felt like he was our clutch go to player and especially for shoot outs. He will be missed, but hopefully our new additions can all fall into place with the team and everyone will click.

Why should people have to apologize for liking Kovalchuk?

What a laugh! So you were right in predicting kovy would unexpectedly retire three years into his deal? I doubt you ever said that. He wasn't a waste while he was here-he led us to the finals and his presence corresponded with increased attendance. So you weren't right about jack squat.

Without Kovalchuk we wouldn't of had that run to the Cup and beat the Rangers in the ECF giving us one of the most memorable moments in Devils history. That's what I will take away from the Kovy era.

Yeah you're still an illogical broken record though.

 

Congrats though, you totally called Kovy shipping back to Russia after a few years.

I wish it had been a long long long long long long long long long long time.

 

A lot of your previous Kovy-bashing was flat-out off base.  Whether you liked him or not, he did make some positive contributions, but you refused to acknowledge any of them as they were happening.  Do you really think the Devils get to within two victories of the 2012 Cup without him?  If you're going to assess blame, you can include the lockout as part of it...if that doesn't happen, Kovy never goes home in the first place.   

 

For the love of God, stick to gameworns.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
