Good point there, but Im pretty confident Lou is doing everything desparately to try sign Kovy. If we assume atleast one of the rumours of contract offers we had for kovy, I say they were pretty fair deals, and if Kovy really wanted to be here, he should've signed already... unless Lou is still trying to trade players for cap space, then he will annouce we've signed him.. highly unlikely IMO
But judging by the fact the Kovy party has made an effort to work a deal with the Kings, I feel he wants to be there. We know that the Kings have rejected his offer, I feel they are in the process of finding a compromise. I dont think the kings will just shutoff contracts talks immediately, esp with a high profile/money maker player like Kovy.
