Based on how everyone in hockey told us the lead up to the expansion draft was going to be one of the craziest offseason events we've ever witnessed, sure it's disappointing that we're not at least si

Two days ago, this was a pathetic draft class that we wanted no part of other than Shattenkirk. Now, the sky is falling because we lost out on him since he's going to realize his 15 year old wet dream

So... Detroit...

Hold on to your seat belts folks! I know Shero will try his best. But you can lead a horse to water.  

Don't you think SKA will want him at least 2-3 year contract?  They don't want to visit this again next year.  Also, Kovys been training in Fla with family, wonder if he (Kovy) knew Dadanov was signing there, maybe to join him?

So. In the last 6 hours, Shattenkirk has followed Hall and Palmieri on instagram.

if what my 9-year old cousin tells me is true; this is basically a done deal now. :P

It just mean Ray lost his mind and traded Hall and Palmieri for the negotiating rights to Tanner Glass.

That's pretty telling...either he's coming or Taylor & Kyle made a new friend while trying to convince  him to do so.

I just checked... it doesn't appear this is true unless he unfollowed them.

I may have confused instagram with twitter

 Hearing that the Devils don't have anything close trade-wise on Kovalchuck. Obviously that can change today potentially (con't)...

 Rangers, Blue Jackets and Leafs believed to be among the teams on Kovalchuk's wish list... not sure Toronto has any interest though...

Of course. Why would something be close? It's only been three months since the process started. [emoji849] fvcking Kovalchuk, I swear- EVERYTHING with this a$$hole is like pulling teeth.

Funny how this played out.

Prior to this week, I fully expected a Kovalchuk trade and for us to not get Shattenkirk.

Now it seems Shattenkirk is all but signed and Kovy ain't coming back.

Not necessarily blaming Kovalchuk here. A lot of moving parts; he only has a few teams he would play for, so the Devils have to work out deals with those teams (probably minimizing his value in the process). Then, they have to agree on a contract figure for Kovalchuk to make the leap. Nothing can happen until 3 hours from now anyway.

Not even thinking about that douche right now. If something gets done, that's a bonus. 

The minute this moron is either traded or no longer our 'property' (assuming he decides to stay with SKA and go UFA next summer) we'll finally be rid of the biggest migraine headache this organization has ever had.

Now he's definitely coming back on a four year deal, with numerous opt-out/opt-back-in clauses that are tied to the S&P 500, when Jupiter is in retrograde, and what his mom says to the Russian press.  He'll also be playing center and defense, but not the wing.

Without him we 100% do not have "Henrique, it's over". I do not call that a migraine.

I don't deny that. But everything off the ice is drama with this guy. I'll be glad when he's someone else's problem.

The current drama isn't such a big deal. We weren't expecting anything from him, either he doesn't or he does and we get a free asset. There's only an upside to us at this point. 

The problem isn't really Kovy at this point, it's the media.
