I'm not happy with that group of forwards either. Clarkson doesn't belong on the second line. Who the hell knows what kind of year Rolston is going to have... and no one knows if Josefson will be there even though he's been given every opportunity now to get that job.



Clarkson should be on the 3rd line with rolston. lets give rolston a smaller role this year, he can still play but obviously not at a major role. keep the expectations low on rolston and let him play a simple defensive responsible game and he'll be fine.

I think the guys in camp both rookie and training camp later on should realize there is a good chance they could get a shot this year and work extra hard to impress and give them a shot at some open/iffy spots in the lineup.

An all day meeting suggests, to me, that it's the make it or break it meeting. LA wants Kovy, Kovy wants LA, but if Kovy and LA can't meet on terms after today then they're actually through this time.



It suggests to me that Kovy will settle in terms of asking price to meet LA's cap requirements. I think he really wants to play in LA and although the Kings bailed out twice, they know they have Kovy over a barrel. I think they need to come to terms that won't embarress Kovy or Grossman pubicly (e.g. incentives).

I still think it's possible Lou signed Clarkson to trade with Toronto for Kaberle. More like hopeful, I guess, but I'd be more than happy to keep him for the checking line. I just don't see him as a top two line forward.

Langs isn't moving down to the third line. He'll most likely stay with 9 and 19 on the first line. If he gets bumped to third line his attitude would be even worse than it already has been.

Sweet Sassy Molassy, I was hoping to wake up to the news that Kovy was off the market. Grrrrr, He better be signed (by any team/league) by the time I finish my Chocolate Cheerios.

That's just not a cup contending team, IMO. I mean we'll still be better than the Rags and Isles and will more than likely make the playoffs with this team, but I still think a big change needs to happen. With or without Kovy.


Those lines are fine to start a season with. When was the last time our regular season roster was the playoff roster.

Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Elias-Arnie-Clarkson
Rolston-Zubrus-Zharkov
Leblond-Pelley-Whoever

I'm more concerened about a puck moving D anyway.

One other thing to consider is that Rolston becomes a healthy scratch on a somewhat regular basis, with the hope of giving him the message loud and clear so he has an extra incentive to waive his NTC. He's probably given every chance to succeed early on, but after that, who knows...


don't see this as an issue - trading rolston has much more to do with finding a willing dance partner than it does his NTC. when a player knows he'll be embarrassed and isn't wanted, they'll waive it.

Then it's time for him to go. If he can't come to grips with the fact that he's not a top line forward anymore than it's his fault.

I still think Kovy-Watch lasts until tomorrow. Today the Kings win him over, tomorrow he signs the paperwork.

PMD should be #1 on the list but I still think we need help on the right.

Parise-Zajac-$$$$$
Elias-Arnott-Zubrus
Rolston-Pelley-Langenbruner
PL3-Jofeson-Zharkov

Kaberle-Greene
Voly-White
Tallinder-Urborn

That's what I'm hoping for. $$$$ means we use the money we were gonna spend on Kovy on Kaberle and a top line RW.

Since when did they make chocolate cherrios? You, sir, just blew my mind. But did you really expect him to sign by 8 AM your time? This sh!t is going to go on for a while, methinks.

I assume thiswhole Kovy thing is holding Lou up from making any more moves right now, but the good thing is that the whole kovy thing is preventing anyone else from making any moves as well. Still a decent group of FA Wingers and at least a small handfull of defensemen.

I just found out about them a couple weeks ago. They are delicious. As for him signing, expect? No. But a boy can dream, a boy can dream...

We are a much BETTER TEAM without Kovy.

Keep drinking that Kool-Aid Manta.

We get it Kovy...you'd rather contract syphilis, gonohrrea, and clymidia than play for the Devils.

:lol:

Could be that Lou isn't willing to throw out the cash and New Jersey's income and property taxes are enough to keep ANYONE away.

Would you imagine that Newark NJ is the most expensive city in the country to own and operate a business? It's true! This state stinks with those financial issues.

And Cali is any better?

Sweet Sassy Molassy, I was hoping to wake up to the news that Kovy was off the market. Grrrrr, He better be signed (by any team/league) by the time I finish my Chocolate Cheerios.

Must get Chocolate Cheerios...I hate you for this.
