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.

Yeah, very interesting. Potvin sounded very sure of himself when he said that, too bad they ended the interview with after that statement.

Also TG says everyone was on the ice for the skate today.

So just to try and recreate what could have happened, maybe Potvin gets some sort of text message, blurts it out on air thinking everyone would know about it, then later realizes he misinterpreted the text message and that's why nobody knew the same thing.

Of course the flip side can be he got a text message about something true and blurted it out on air and his source just knew before other people's sources.

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.

Am I in the minority in thinking getting Kovy (even as a rental) would be amazing?

Єklund (2.3% accurate) (2.3% accurate) just said the Devils are in on Kovalchuk.....so this rumor appears to be false.

If he does, I wonder how often it gets bombarded by Rangers fans telling him he sucks.

Єklund (2.3% accurate) (2.3% accurate)'s post on HB is hilarious... he posts it like he heard it and then puts:

Added: Apparently Denis Potvin mentioned this possibility on XM this morning as well.


lol what a tool.

There seemed to be a lot of buzz that the Devils were really close to getting Hossa until Pitt stepped in so it seems like ATL and NJ like to talk about soon to be UFA wingers. :evil:

Well thats the end of this rumor. Єklund (2.3% accurate) (2.3% accurate) just announced it had truth. Damn, oh well.

/end thread


P.S. That accuracy has surely gone down lately. I might change it to 1.5% now.

Since Danis is starting the deal is obviously Marty for Kovalchuk straight up and then Devils will deal for Clemmy back since Clemmy is just as good.

it's almost certainly not true. i just can't imagine what the devils would send back. oduya-bergfors-halischuk-leblond-1st for kovalchuk-kubina? it doesn't really add up - it's too much.


the oduya/kubina part is too much. but bergfors/halischuk/1st for kovalchuk - i think you have to do that if you can - even if it is a rental. i think bergfors is a realitvely cheap 20-25 goal scorer for the next 4 years but he's not the reason the devils could/would win (directly - obviously indirectly by being cheap helps get the heavy lifters). if oduya gets included for kubina, i think i'd want a capable center like todd white in return.

interesting to discuss.

Lou is just driving the price tag up to screw the team that ends up getting him
