Good to see I didn't legitimately miss anything in the last 7 hours I was away.

Although SD's rant looks a bit ill-timed right now. Oh well.

The more things change...

Bobby Holik wouldn't name a (Christmas) song. He said: "Music means nothing to me." When Tom Gulitti of the
Record suggested he'd be called Scrooge, Holik said: "It won't be the first time." -Bobby Holik Christmas 2008

The funny thing is that if we signed Kovalchuk, the Islanders would need Rolston and Salvador's salary almost as much as we need to dump it. They need to get over the cap floor and convincing high priced free agents to sign on the Island is not easy.

"Ilya Kovalchuck to New Jersey. Long term deal 7-years $60M."

Get excited, fellas.

Ah, Kovalchuk. I hope you sign in the KHL because all you are after is money. The Devils could do better than to sign him to any contract. Sure he can score 40 goals, but the post-season is a different story.



yea really, its obvious he doesnt really JUST want to play here, its becoming clear its all about the money! take the pay cut Kovy win a few playoff rounds and then cash in!

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

I can't say i watched every playoff game but the first two playoff games I thought Kovalchuk was the only one who cared. Parise and Zajac did squat.

Isles need money and we have arguably better players for the list of crappy contracts.

Luckily, things are up to speed in this condo complex in Seaside Park. A great beach day, raw clams, Maruca's pizza and free agent madness. A great day.

Technically, his agent said Kovy was "looking to make a decision on his future today."

So, he never said he definitely was going to make a decision. And he certainly never said his decision would be made public.

Damn the fine print, even on the 140-character-limit Twitter.

Pretty credible source from HF has the deal for 7 years @ 8.8 per. Holy fizzle is that steep if true. I would never have thought we would go anywhere near a figure like that.

in case anyone missed it, Strang said the Isles are out and so are the Kings. So who's left? Russia?
