Kovalchuk's agent Jay Grossman tweeted:
"Ilya Kovalchuk will make his decision today (for sure, this time!)."

Now the rest of the dominoes can fall. :siren:

I'm hoping he goes to the kings for 8 or under. Not an overpayment and it'll make Kings games more fun to watch.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Yeah I'm glad he will (most likely) be going to a team that I really like, the Kings of course.

Will there be exclusive primetime coverage of the decision on ESPN?

No no, that would only be if he was going to the penguins or another cup contending team that would win the cup for him instead of him going to a team and making them a cup contender with his own skills.

There will be an hour long Russian special, brought to you by the KGB sports network.

Kings for sure, or he is going home.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

It's official. Devils' official Twitter says so.

Well, guess he valued less travel in the East over a better chance to win a Cup with a young team like Los Angeles. Devils aren't winning anything any time soon.

I didn't see him ending up there. Good for NJ....and it keeps him out of the West. :thumbup:

Confirmed: Kovalchuk stays with New Jersey
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Fixed it for you.

wow... I really thought he was going to end up in LA - this really bodes well for NJ, otherwise that trade could have REALLY been a disaster with what the would have essentially given up for nothing... with that said, if NJ really hopes to get the best out of him, they're going to have to adjust their style a little bit...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Never would have expected him to re-sign there, thought he was a pure rental.

I'm just glad this whole thing is over.

Hopefully the floodgates open now and we see a few more trades.

My thoughts exactly. You gotta think Gagne to LA is a safe bet now, and I think Burke is still on vacation but I'd expect a Kaberle trade shortly after his return.
