Oh come on now, for pete's sake... the answer in the other 14k threads asking this question was no, and it's still no. A resounding no.

I hope not. I don't think he'd be a good fit.

It all depends on whether the Cap inexplicably goes up 10 million. The Hawks seem to be counting on that so who knows...

if we get Raffi to waive his ntc ask Kovy to take a 2 yr deal for $6m a year and bring up Smith on the d then yes we could get him, as they say never say never but in this case maybe never is the right phrase !!

Yes. I did all the calculations and if they're correct the chance is approximately: 0,0000274%.

You would need to know someone with a time machine and go back to the pre-cap era.

If Kovalchuk is willing to play for under 3 million then there is a chance. Unfortunately for us, the guy turned down 100 million dollars over ten years (granted the offer was from atlanta). I would be surprised if he signed for any team at under six mil a year....just imagine if we could sign him though...Datysuk + Kovalchuk = unfair.

Deal! I just spoke to Riff Raf and he is willing to waive as long as he doesn't have to play denfence in NJ either.

It could've been done moving some salary around. Let's say Holland didn't re-sign Bert. What's that about a 2mil cap hit? You ship Ozzy to Tampa Bay for a prospect, There's close to another 2mil, and yes Obviously you'd have to get Raffi to waive his no-trade clause and ship him somewhere for a bag of sticks. We would've had to roll with some young D-men like Kindl and Smith, but it probably could've been done had Holland really wanted to do it.

It'd probably be more likely that they trade Flip and Krownwall or Stuart or something to get enough room. But not going to happen anyway unfortunately.

Absolutely not, it would've been suicide. In a non-cap world f*** YEAH.
