May as well trade him instead of the 1st. Considering we now have 3 of the top 15 LWs in the game, it's not like we're going to need a top 6 guy at that position anytime soon.

I would not trade him. He has a lot of upside and it would be silly to trade him.

Or you shift him to right wing and keep a developed asset.

Tallinder has an excellent first pass, Greene can move the puck and Urbom moves the puck well.

i'm trying to think of teams that have two players who consistently play on their off-wing. the devils could potentially have 4 if they kept tedenby.

if Kovy does somehow sign with Devils, it will have nothing to do with what anyone said on any forum or blog. Same thing goes with if he signs with the kings.


But I cannot help but smirk and throw another round into the "Eat yer wirds" cannon everytime someone on this board writes off/badmouths Ilya.
I look forward to them all praising him in the future seasons I hope he chooses to spend in NJ.

C'mon! Ilya!

Oh B.S.! He looked at this thread and was all "Epic, I'm home!"

This is excellent we keep him but bad because SD is going to have a "told you so" attitude!

And I saw someone sed they'd eat their jersey, gotta go find that one! Posted Image

Elais-Arnott-Kovalchuk is going to be a good line. Arnott is real good down low. With Kovy and Elias' shots there's going to be a great chance for deflections and rebounds.

EAK! .... line! Looks Scarey!!!!

I would!

Welcome home Kovy! I just saw this info on TSN and had to come over to celebrate w/ my fellow Devils fans.

I am anxious to see what Lou has up his sleeve in terms of the contract.

Wait, so $6 mil this year and next, $11.5 mil for the 5 years after that, then declining? Interesting.

I imagine that $11.5 mil leap up during the potential lockout year was the one of the big hangups between him and LA.

Though under this format, I don't think the NHL can challenge it strictly on the numbers (the whole $ decrease/minimum payment being a certain % of the next lowest or something - that $3.5 mil towards the end seems like it would take care of that issue, I would guess).

What

So the first 2 years are 6 million dollars each, then 5 years of 11.5?

edit:

Any idea if he has a NTC??? I hope not.

Interesting that the leap in $ comes during the potential work-stoppage year; earlier reports said that was a sticking point with LA, that Kovalchuk didn't want to potentially lose out on the greatest sum of money if there were no season.

Any idea if he has a NTC??? I hope not.

I'm just assuming he gets one. They're standard operating procedure at this point.

I'd really only be annoyed if it's a NMC like the Devils gave to Elias. But I'm pretty much expecting that to be part of it, really.

oh okay this makes way more sense now, i didn't understand it either until you explained it. having the first two years be 6 million makes sense from a devils budget standpoint, although i hope it's not like vanderbeek trying to pump up the value of the team with some deep playoff runs and then selling the team off.

the deal would go like this:

6 6 11.5 11.5 11.5 11.5 11.5 10.5 8.5 6.5 3.5 750k 550k 550k 550k 550k 550k

very interesting stuff, if that's true. if the NHL changes to a cap hit is what you're being paid in a given year system, that's a bit of trouble for new jersey in year 3, but if we miss that whole year due to a lockout, it wouldn't be that big a deal.

obviously he has an NTC. who knows when it kicks in, but knowing lou, probably right away and for the whole deal.

Star Ledger/Chere: Dainius Zubrus: Huge move to sign Kovalchuk is to shake up Devils

Zubrus said some big names could be on their way out of New Jersey.

"Yeah, I think so," he said. "There's going to have to be something done. I don't know all the numbers, but I'm pretty sure we're over the cap. I don't think anybody knows what will happen, but something will." ...

"Am I worried? I don't know. It's tough for me to say," Zubrus said. "Do I wake up in the morning and worry if I'm going to be traded? No. I don't think that way.

"I hope I'm not traded. I want to be on this team. I want to stay here. I believe we're a good team. I really like the pickups of (Anton) Volchenkov and (Henrik) Tallinder. I played with Tallinder in Buffalo. Even though it was a while back, I played with Volchenkov in the World Cup. He was younger and didn't play that much. He's a grown man now."
