Given that Atlanta has stated that they will not allow a team to negotiate a long term deal prior to a trade happening truely makes this a rental situation. I think that the number and caliber of players needed to make a trade for a rental player measurably drops versus a player under contract for a couple of more years.

That being said I doubt this is anything more than Potvin tossing out a comment without any backing.

I guess the $10 million dollar question is whether Kovy's attitude changes coming to this team, with its playoff history, its coaching staff and veteran players?

Gomez has not been the same player since leaving. That shows how being on the right team can impact a players approach/commitment to the game.

STill not going to happen though.

if he compared it to the mogilny trade why would he have mentioned the flyers? but who cares, he could've said kovalchuk to the blues and it would've made as much sense.

To indulge the fantasy for a minute like everyone else has, dealing for Kovalchuk sort of forces you to use Elias at center which the Devils have been trying to avoid the last few months. Parise and Kovalchuk aren't moving from LW and you aren't having three players of that caliber play the same position. Especially since we have no second offensive line center as it is.

I just found it. It's at the end of the interview: "By the way, did you hear that Kovalchuk is going to the New Jersey Devils?" Didn't sound like speculation to me.

Maybe we can give them Rolston/Oduya/package and get back Todd White/Kovalchuk....then we'd need a defenseman from somewhere

Just like Greene last year! I still don't like Bergfors much...he's like a lost puppy on the ice, always skating side by side with a player and often stealing the pucks from them.

Thanks Acklaw. I guess we wonder why he blurted that out now.
