Ok I know there are other threads on this topic but I just read on Eklund

"All this while a few rumors are surfacing that Kovalchuk may indeed take a one year deal in Detroit or Philly".

Let me know what people think. Not sure we have the money but who knows.

Eklund isn't exactly the most reliable source btw. So you lose a lot of credibility when using him as a source.

The likihood of Kovi being a Wing is a stretch. No thanks. I like the team we got this year.

Yeah I just read that too.

This guy is so far out of touch with anything going on with the Red Wings. Yesterday he also said that Red Wings fans must be crushed that Lebda is now a Leaf. lol

As said above, he would have to play for under $2M and that will so obviously NEVER happen. This reminds me of Eklund's reported rumor a few months ago that was a straight up Zetterberg for Luongo :ph34r:

Does anyone really have "credibility" on here. We are armchair gm's that post while at work or whatever it may be that we do. I wouldn't really worry where someone gets their sources for roster moves in the offseason. That said, hell no is Kovie coming here. The guy is a huuuuuge salary cap hit to whomever and he doesn't even want to play in the West so this is a sunken ship.

:lol: And negged because someone feels they are "credible" hahaha.

He throws names in a hat and then throws teams in another and picks then rights a rumour blog. That is how it's done. I'm sure of it. :hehe:

Someone named Jimmy Murphy just tweeted that the Wings have offered one-year and $8.5 million. How? He does not explain. Apparently, they're trading everyone.

Stupid link

Why isn't NHL network covering the Kovie contract talks as much as ESPN is covering the Lebron circus? :ph34r: I seriously think the NBA will just run itself into the ground with this. Biggest joke ever. And the sheep will flock too. Everyone here today is just Lebron obsessed as if it really matters where the dude goes.

Yeah, the only way this is even remotely possible is if they already have a trade worked out sending Rafalski out of town. Doesn't he have a NTC?

Ya he does. Biggest mistake Kenny ever made. Actually could be the only one.

Yes Rafalski has a NTC.

Zetterberg and Lidstrom don't have a NTC though. :ph34r:

Love Raffi but in NHL '10 I had a choice of keeping Rafalski or dropping him.

It's amazing how even in a game what the possibilities were once I unloaded that 6 mill lol. Just sayin'....

I must have pissed in someone's "Chelios" today... My internet rep is rapidly declining due to my trades in a video game...

Draper, Cleay, Huds.

This just in. Rafalski to miss entire season after an unfortunate golfing accident.

Wings sign Kovie on 1 year mega deal. :ph34r:

Oh wishful thinking. :cool:
