it's not a real possibility, it's the new york media trying to create it from thin air and force rags' hands to try to get in on it.

I look at Kovalchuk as a luxury. We don't need him as much as we need an offensive threat from the blue line. However, I think a lot of people are underestimating the Kings even without Kovalchuk. They have the best chance at being the next Blackhawks, as in a team that has a huge turn around from worst to best in about a 3 - 4 year period.

i don't blame Kovalchuck if he signs with the Kings...they have an awesome young team and LA's a great town.
He'll probably get more endorsement deals especially if he's working with AEG...they probably get him tons of marketing $$$ off the NHL books.
the Devils are in decline, the way things are going... would not be surprised if Parise winds up in Toronto in a couple years.

it's starting to look scary...marty's got a couple years left, then what?

So maybe he's worried that the Devs will become another Atlanta.

Harbinger alert:

Just had a great omen for the Devils to start my day.

The coffee vendor in lower Manhattan that I get my daily coffee fix from served my large coffee in a QuickChek DEVILS cup this morning.

That means KOVY is officially gone and we can focus on winning again.

Ugh you know what? He probably isn't going to sign there. It's just another piece of news that will keep us glued to the computer all damn day... with the way things are going, we probably won't even hear anything today.

But remember, LA is three hours behind. They probably won't even get talks or a meeting underway until 11-12 Eastern time.

Clearly LA is where Kovy wants to play. How many times do the Kings have to say "nyet", before Grossman has to beg for them to take him and his expensive contract.

Let him go.

From nhl.com

" If the Kings are finally able to land Kovalchuk, who has 338 goals in 621 NHL games, they would instantly become Stanley Cup contenders. "

Hahaha this is just hilarious. I mean he is high a end player,but is not like if any team get him, the team would magicaly became a strong contender for the cup.


They absolutely would become a contending team. Very youg, very talented team, adding a 40-50 goal scorer. The only thing standing in the way is whether, as some critics claim, Kovy doesn't play "the right" way, and can never learn how.

If it weren't for Zach just being awesome, I would trade the Devils roster for the Kings in a heart beat.

On a deep, contending team.. I don't think Kovy would touch 50 goals or get relatively close.

Kopitar might be the most underrated player in the NHL right now. He was off to a blazing start last year before his wingers started getting hurt. If he can figure out a way to stay at that level, and have Kovalchuk on his wing, he'll post big numbers - and Kovy will certainly be able to flirt with 50 goals.

It's probably just me, but I think Kovalchuk on a DEEP and CONTENDING team would be a 40 goal, 40 assist guy that is worth somewhere between 5-7 mil. LA and NJ are not Atlanta. He is not going to be THE goal scorer. He is going to have to learn how to be responsible in his own end on either team. If he wants to be THE show, he can go to Russia.

sorry dan...i forgot to drink my coffee before i wrote that...lol
still...i'm kinda feeling weird about the devils future.

all of a sudden johnny macs the head coach...we got arnott and rolston back...martys on the way out...
and lou is like the emperor with no clothes on.

So maybe he's worried that the Devs will become another Atlanta.

you could be right...LoL!

you all need to stop with the LL roller coaster, the guy signs a-train everybody loves him, he stands his ground on kovie everybody hates him. there is a reason why everyone in nhl respects the guy, he gets what he can while maintaining a playoff team, he won't throw it all away just to sign the big name.
