just figured i would bring this up in here for the hell of it even though it carries no weight at all really... on one of the devils facebook fan groups someone said something about kovy coming back..and right away some were for it some were against it some thought it could happen and some said it would never happen.. anyone think anything about kovalchuk possibly coming back? and if he was to come back to the team anyone have any thoughts on maybe when? again..this was like some hearsay amongst fans just thought i would make some discussion on it in here

I'd take him back if it was for, say, 5 years, at less per year than the original deal.

I'd also require a clause that if he defects again, he is obligated to stand center ice, any fan who is interested can stand in line to kick him in the nuts.

I'm not flexible on the second part.

I seriously doubt Kovalchuk will ever come back to the NHL, certainly not for the Devils. I wouldn't want him back anyway. His back seems to have really affected his play and battling that will only speed up his decline.

I heard Kovalchuk was in Miami at the Nets-Heat game last night. Probably chillin' in the owner's box with Prokhorov.

The rest of the NHL is probably unhappy about NJ getting a 1st round pick this year - I imagine they're not in a mood to allow Kovalchuk back into the league.  Plus given his play the last two years I'd only want him on a one year deal.

I totally see Lou signing Brian Gionta to a multiyear deal. The thought of signing a former Devil is just way too tempting for him to pass up.

I think the way it works is if he wants back in immediately all of the owners have to agree to it, or at least enough of them have to. Otherwise, he has to not play hockey for a year, and then the Devils have his rights outright until he's 35.

There's just too much money on the table in Russia, unless there are schnenagans with him getting paid.

We should do what we should have done a couple seasons ago and get Jussi Jokinen. Pitt got him from CAR for a conditional 6th or 7th round pick. Insane.

Kovalchuk summers in Miami with a bunch of Russians. Has been doing it for years.

Hard to nitpick things like this, 28 other teams could be saying the same thing. Playing here is a hell of a lot different than Pittsburgh.

I'd be happy to see him come here.  But other teams will throw $$$ at him (Buffalo/Philly) etc If Lou does I hope it's a "fair" wage. The way he plays the game gives him a short shelf life

The Nets twitter account actually posted it. Looks like he's good friends with Andrei Kirilenko.

He's a UFA after this season. He plays left wing(something we need) and I think he would work well on a line with Zajac and Jagr

Kyle Palmieri has been a healthy scratch? Might be playing tonight.  Wonder if he'd be available? Although he was already gone the last time we drafted a Palmieri

Man, I would donate the maximum to anyone running for President that would promise not to let him back into the country.
