In Topic: Slow News Day: Kremlin Edition- Could IK Come Back to NHL?

Z8 what year are you expecting Kovy back with the Devils? What price do you think is right? How many years? Just curious.


The Devils hold the key to him returning to the NHL for the next 2 seasons.  The team holds the bargaining power and if he is serious about a return to the show, he has to recognize that. 


I'd make him a 2 or 3 year offer at money comparable to Cammy.  Even though I hate how he left and hold almost no regard for the man any longer, the fact remains that he is an asset that would make this team better in the short term and, if they so choose, he could be dealt for prospects and picks at an upcoming trade deadline.

I'll give you one guess.... he's 72 years old, is of Italian-American descent, is said to roam the Prudential Center, and is good with math.  


Danny DeVito???

That appears to be fairly straightforward, if entirely contradictory to 8.2, doesn’t it? A player who rethinks his retirement only needs to wait a year before signing a new deal and returning to action. And since Kovalchuk signed his retirement papers on July 11, 2013, more than 18 months ago, it appears as though he could sign a new contract with the Devils, his previous NHL team, and be eligible for immediate reinstatement.



Say he does do just that and is allowed to return to the NHL next season based upon this provision.  How soon after can the Devils trade him?

Going out on a limb here any saying Kovalchuk. Great character guy. selfless leader in all respects. Logical choice once he returns to the show.

I think Kovalchuk is like that gorgeous ex girlfriend from college. You dated her, both of you changed for the better. Everywhere you went, people stared at her in amazement. And then, a year after you proposed, she left you to go home. She left you in shambles. And you hated her, you hated her so, so much. But you saw Facebook photos of her and knew you were still in love. In the years without her, you lost your job, your apartment. Your life, for the most part, has been miserable without her. Yeah, you don't spend money on her any more which is nice, but you replace her cost with cigarette-smelling strippers named Brunner and hookers named Ryder. You had a short stint with a cute girl named Jagr, but that's done now too.


And then, a few years later, when you think you might be getting over the pain, you get a text. "Hey", she says. "I miss you. I want to come back. I still love you."


Maybe it's about the money, maybe she got bored going back home. Maybe you should be the bigger man and move on. But you haven't scored with any chicks in forever, your future looks bleak, and when you close your eyes at night you can still picture her doing that cute little dance, where she puts her knee on the ground and her hand in the air. She always used to say that 'This is Couple', and it was adorable. 


So what do you text back?


"Nice shoes...want to fvck?"


Seriously, I don't want him back, but at least he would make things more entertaining in the near future around the Rock.  For all reasons stated above, its a moot point because he isn't coming back to the NHL anytime soon.
