In Topic: Kovy Making News...for the wrong reasons

18 May 2015 - 05:19 PM

I feel like Kovalchuk has always been a poor sport so this doesn't really surprise me. It's a heat of the moment type thing so I won't hold it against him. But I think it speaks to a lack of maturity compared to guys like Ovechkin or Malkin. Ovi really should have been captain. 

 

EDIT: My first sentence is meant as more of a matter of fact statement than an insult. I think to get to that level you need to be ultra-competitive and sometimes that comes out in ways that are unattractive to people. Kovy was one of the more competitive players NJ ever had in my opinion, and doubly so when it comes to representing his country.

Lame.

Great series though.

I hope Tampa beats them but I'm not optimistic.

Seeing the Blues on this list of successful franchises makes me laugh.  22 postseason appearance and how many were 1st round exists?  We know they won 0 cups in that time, but how many finals appearances did they have over that run? 

 

I guess the Yankees, Patriots and perhaps a few others would be there if those leagues had more playoff spots.

That's pretty cool.

One of the greats.

I'll miss the weird idiosyncrasies that come with cheering for a Lou team. Limited number jerseys, no facial hair, players wearing suits, and grabbing every former we can find just because.

His philosophies as a manager are one of the reasons I've been fan of the Devils since childhood despite living nowhere near New Jersey.

Cheers Lou.

 

Oh and great trade? I know Bryce Salvador isn't that popular right now. But Cam Janssen for Bryce Salvador? Still don't believe it.
