In Topic: Kovalchuk Retired Effective Immediately?

12 July 2013 - 07:38 AM

My last memory of Kovy as a Devil was showing absolutely no effort backchecking while on the powerplay against the Rangers in the season finale. What a fitting ending.


yep. i remember that i was furious about his effort, even in a meaningless game. this effort will bring him 10$M per year from his buddy Medvedev, playing for SKA St.Petersburg.

Blues needed to make room to re-sign Chris Stewart


not only stewart, they need to resign pietrangelo too.


but i think they will go after vanek and offer some of halak/elliott, stewart/paajarvi a pick and maybe a prospect


since the signing of roy i believe vanek will land in st. louis in the near future.

In Topic: Miller & Vanek on the block

Since Vaneks caphit this year would not fit to our team it's a nice dream like SD said.

But imagine for just 10 seconds what a Line of LW Vanek and RW Kovy could do to the Rags and Pens and Philly :dizzy:

In Topic: Who will be the new Assistant Coach... Thoughts?

10 July 2013 - 04:46 AM

We need this Ass. Coach especially for the PP right?  What about Scott Niedermayer (even i don't know what his Coaching Duties in Anaheim are - Def / PP / PK etc.). Just to see Niedermayer and Stevens together on the Devils Bench would be awesome. I'm also fine with Brylin but maybe someone more experienced would be nice.

At least we need someone who can figure out our PP. Since Oates and Shaw (who had good PP's with their former Teams TB - ranked 8th  and SJ - ranked 4th, 2nd, 2nd) could not solve our problems in that area i hope the "New PP" will not use Kovy at the left Point. Really EVERYBODY (even in the Australian desert) knows where the puck will be passed next........

In Topic: Tallinder traded to Buffalo.

08 July 2013 - 10:34 AM

It had to be Tallinder, no GM in his right mind would take on Volchenkov at 4.25M for the next 3 years when he is slowing down when the game is speeding up. And of course Salvador is the captain, and trading Fayne would barely be a cap dump and stupid because he is one of the few guys on the right side of 30 with Larsson.


That's right. No one takes Sal (35+ Contract and way overpaid, Volch has a NTC).


As much as i like all the moves Lou has done this offseason, Tallinder is worth at least a 5th Round Draftpick. Like SD mentioned maybe Buffalo wanted us to take a contract back.


But please don't use the cap space to resign Zid. If we do it, no one of our d-prospects will see playing time.


I want Larsson at first (or Harrold)  to take Zids role. He has the passing skills and the vision....and he needs to play more.


Would PDB scratch our captain Salvador (by far our worst defender in the on the nhl roster) to give Merrill, Gelinas or Urbom playing time.....i doubt that. PDB likes experience.


Also i see not to many  playing time this year (except injuries) for our two forward prospects Matteau and Boucher.
