    I don't care that people are talking about Kovy, I'm just surprised there are so many people that even want to discuss anything about him at this point. 

    Really? You're surprised that people talk about the most dynamic offensive talent we have ever had when it relates to the possibility of him making an NHL comeback?

    I don't necessarily think that he was a cancer in the room, but he LIED to all of us by signing on the dotted line and then "retiring" a year or two later, he lied to the fans, he lied to management, and he lied to his teammates.  Now that U.S. sanctions are really fvcking Russia up and it's looking like he's not going to get paid, these rumors start.  It's highly coincidental, you have to at least admit.

    I highly doubt we'll see the same Kovalchuk.  

    Kovy-lovers:  Please explain why Kovalchuk is so exciting when he's not exactly tearing up an inferior league AND on a bigger/wider sheet of ice.  Please explain why he has to have 1st line minutes AND playing double shifts on the powerplay in order to score even as much as he did.  I'm not doubting Kovalchuk's skills which are high end, I'm doubting his effectiveness when playing in a team setting (ala Maxim Afinogenov).  The numbers don't lie, people will.  Please tell me "he has heart" or something so I can laugh at you.  

    I don't understand the nostalgia for Kovalchuk.  You guys on here sometimes talk about him like he was here for a long as Marty.  He lied to you, he lied to me, and he hurt the team with his departure, no doubt, but he still HURT the team.  "This is team"??? More like, "This is bullsh!t".



    He lied to us? Grow up. Hes a human with human issues. You think he signed the contract with the plan to break it? How exactly did he lie? He left to go home and to make more money after being wooed by the KHL while our a$$hole league was locked out.


    "waaa he lied"

  3. When he left I was pissed, but a lot of posts here and on TGs blog talking about what a bad guy Kovalchuk is. Remember the swarm it up shirts? The 'this is team' stuff? By most accounts he seemed like a solid locker room guy. I don't buy all the 'locker room cancer' stuff. 

    Im not saying he should be brought back for sure, but I do know that many of my best Devils memories and moments in the last 5 years involved him. Nobody was more exciting. I haven't jumped off my couch in excitement since those days. Plus I spent $300 or whatever on an authentic jersey when he signed the big deal.

    Yeah I don't really get it. Best player on his team team by far. Top 3 defenseman in the league, deserves every accolade and bit of praise that he gets. 

    And then he really won me over with his $10 million charity contribution to that children's hospital. I know we see these guys as "overpaid millionaires who can afford it", but that's a significant chunk of change; it's really a lot, even for a millionaire hockey player. Relatively speaking, none of us would set aside more than a WHOLE YEAR'S salary for charity, would we?

    And then people say their problem with him is that he's cocky. Kanye West is cocky. "Confident" is more the word, because he never oversteps the boundaries with what he says or does. But regardless, he's one of the best players in the league, let him be confident. But you can't question his commitment to his team, Canadiens fans, or even hockey fans in general leaguewide. The game needs more PK Subbans, as far as I'm concerned.

    Seriously. $10MM is a HUGE HUGE donation for the level of income he is making. Imagine donating over a year of your salary to a cause.


    That is absurd and should be unanimously praised.

    I had no idea there were so many Chip fans on here, I'm so amused. Anyone going to red bank or Montclair to see Nortons upcoming tour? 



    I'm a Stern fan and never liked O&A but Norton is hilarious on the show these days and the only reason I listen. When is he in Jersey?

  6. uh if you watched the play he made the drop pass back to mike to set him up for the shot....

    Yea I did watch it. It was a horrible defensive play by Arizona.

    Zajac has had a good game but anyone who is happy with his performance over the last couple years is insane. The numbers speak for themselves. Take the intangibles and shove them up your a$$hole.
