Very sexy...heck I was thinking about making one a few years ago just to piss off Thrashers fans when I watch the Devils play them at Philips Arena.

Audio is up on facebook. It is at the very end of Potvins segment.

He sounds serious, and likens this move to the Mogilny one.

Immediately before he starts talking about it, they were discussing how some players don't work in some systems. They talked about how Jokinen didn't work in Calgary b/c he didn't play good D.

Amazing how this is spreading like wildfire. We should all start calling the Devils Team Store in The Rock and ask them when the Kovalchuk jerseys are coming in! :yay:

They probably know that Lou hates it when his moves are mentioned in the media and are spreading it to guarantee Lou doesn't do it. :evil:

I know it's fun to speculate, but this just isn't happening for the reasons that are obvious to everyone... the asking price will be too high for a player who will not resign at the end of the year. Also, I think everyone knows that if you're talking trade with the Devils, you don't leak the existence of negotiations to the press, or else Lou won't deal with you in the future.

This is one of two things: either (1) someone's idle speculation being turned to into a rumor; or (2) Atlanta or some other third party planting rumors that will drive up the perceived demand.

I just listened to the audio. Potvin obviously wasn't saying a deal was done, he said it would make sense in the same way the Mogilny deal made sense for the Devils. My own speculation is he sounds like he believes the Devils are making a push for Kovalchuk, like they did when they got Mogilny, based upon his tone and how he says things.

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.

Your second reason is more likely than the first for why this won't happen. Lou's been known to kill trades as soon as any rumor of it surfaces. But I think a lot of people are overestimating the cost of a rental player. It won't be peanuts, but it wouldn't take Parise, Elias, half the farm and a 1st.

Maybe he didn't mean for it to come out that way but he definitely said, "oh and did you hear Kovalchuk is going to the New Jersey Devils?" and then he goes into talking about the Mogilny deal.
