It's hard to at what the team would have looked like with kovy this year. Lou probably knew the whole time that kovy was leaving and made every offseason move with that in mind.

Steve Thomas wasn't the worst player of Wendel Clark and Claude Lemieux - he was probably the 2nd best player.  Thomas was just miserable in NJ and 96 was the only year where he had a large role.


I'm surprised he didn't have a mental breakdown in 98 after Carp got hurt.   They brought up Morrison and him, Thomas, and Rolston clicked pretty well as an offensive oriented line.   But then Carp came back and it was back to mindless checking and matchups.   I would say that role was a large role, though, because Carp played a disproportionate amount of ice-time.   Just probably not the role any scoring forward would WANT.

And obviously not Brunner.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

i'm not convinced of that. kovy's $ (cap hit) = zid + ryder. the real dollars, of course, is another matter entirely. although, its possible the new owners could consider it ashtray money but, they weren't the new owners at the time.

“They’re the ones that makes it happen,” Lemaire said. “It’s not us. It’s not me. It’s not the other guy. It’s not the guy before. It’s not the guy after. It’s them. And they have to take care of business.”
