Reasons I don't trust this article:
1) New Jeryse Devils
2) Kovalchuk has 58 goals in 49 games this season with the Thrashers

So...yeah. I could've written a more detailed article.

lol didnt catch those two errors at all i skimmed it real quick...he has 58pts tho :uni:

with the rumors of other teams pulling out, im starting to think he's getting nervous and is gonna take the best offer he's got. waddell has a history of some 'what the hell' trades so anything can happen.

too young for the gilmour trade haha


he's got a month, he'd have to be a fool to go now "just because"... but the problem is that he already set this in motion by telling Kovalchuk he'd be gone.

then again, this is the numbnuts that put together that 2007 debacle. build for the playoffs, get curbstomped by the Rangers for their first series win in 250 years.

did someone say he told kovy he's got 5 days, or he'd be traded by the end of the week, something like that? im pretty sure i saw that somewhere.

yeah all you have to say is Zhitnik and Tkachuk for that

that's not true, if it's the player potentially being traded... if it's close to happening, and you don't run your business like an a$$hole, they'll get some headsup. and then there's the agents.

he was looking into booking Bergfors.


lol, that guy's a curse - he had Clemmensen all booked for his place last year and then literally the day before he was supposed to come he gets sent down to Lowell.

But yeah he clearly has some contacts, at least locally.

The best theory I heard is that he wants to trade Kovalchuk before the Olympics in case he gets hurt.

Somebody mentioned the fact that Rick Dudley (Atlanta's Assistant GM) was at the Lowell-Hartford game last night, in addition to being at the Devils-Leafs game in Toronto the night before, and McKenzie responds with: "A case could be made".

Also says Kovalchuk to NJ wouldn't surprise him since he can't come up with more reasons why others teams won't do it.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

From the Philly Daily news per the Atlanta Constiturion Journal, sounds like Philly may not be able to shed enough salary to make it happen. Maybe more in the Devils favor as it seems as though there are only a few teams even being mentioned at this point.

eh, i think it's too much - the devils would have to be really high on other players in their system. here's the team next year if that trade comes to pass:

parise-zajac-langenbrunner
elias-zubrus-clarkson
rolston-?-zharkov
leblond-pelley-halischuk

salvador-greene
white-?
?-?

then in 2012:

parise-zajac-?
rolston-zubrus-elias
?-cormier-zharkov
leblond-pelley-halischuk

salvador-?
white-?
?-?

that's a lot of holes to fill. also that 2012 team will cost 39 million with 4 spots on defense and 2 spots on wing to fill.
