Apparently there is a rumor ek is peddling about the Devils dumping Kovy to allow for the sale of the franchise and to lock up Parise. I am not here to report the rumor, I only offer it as a little context to this question.

You are Ken Holland. What do you package together to bring Kovy in?

If Eklund says a player is on the market, you can bet your bottom dollar that player is not on the market. If this is true though, its a salary dump, therefore the value of the player being dumped is lower than normal market value... I would say probably Franzen+mid tier prospect+high pick 2013.

I wouldn't even want to dream of taking that contract over. Holland get it out of your mind. Right now. Actually, don't even let it be seeded into your head.

Eklund is a nut. His batting average is like .050, if that, but it's like if he gets one thing right, it's like he hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 9th inning in Game 7 of the World Series.

No thanks on Kovy.

Doubt Holland would make a move like that, and doubt he will be traded. They will either find a way to sign Parise and keep Kovalchuk or Parise will sign elsewhere. The only way I would consider doing this trade if he infact is up for grabs is if we could commit highway robbery. Some ridiculous offer that we just couldn't say no too.

Highway robbery? Maybe something like the rights to Hudler, all the $1 hotdogs you can carry, & Karen Newman's home phone number? Get 'r done Kenny! :colgate:

That is exactly what I was thinking lol! And maybe a round of golf with Larry Murphy! Even then I would be a little worried to take that contract on! :shutup:

As usual it's about a 99.99999% chance Eklund is full of s***. I would have to think Parise coming back to the Devils would be pretty contingent on Kovy being there and them icing a solid team again next season.. That would be like the Wings trading Zetterberg to keep Datsyuk (or the other way around).. Not to mention all that the Devils went through to get Kovy in the first place (ridiculous contract, penalized by the league, plus assets lost in the trade)..

If he is available, and that's a big if, The devils would have to take Franzen and Bert's awful contracts for me to be interested if I were the GM.

Eklund has the Wings going after Sammy. He has it on good authority that Kenny tried to get him at the deadline. When Eklund says a player is going somewhere, you know he IS NOT going to that team. I agree with the poster above. To even think about taking on Kovy's absurd contract, the Mule would have to be included in any deal with NJ.

Love Kovy great player, but given that he's signed until he is 47 or whatever I share the sentiments above in that I would not touch that contract with Chicago's!

Edit: spelling

Kovy's. Contract is very manageable from a caphit perspective. (6.66 MM)

I think .005 is a bit more accurate when it comes to Eklund. And yeah, Ek's "Sources" are a dart board with pics of players and teams pinned to it. He doesn't report rumors, he speculates and he's easily the least credible source in the hockey world. Anything involving Kovy coming here I don't see as any kind of possibility.

The issue for NJ is that his real salary jumps from $6 to $11 MM this coming season. If they truely are straped, why not unload the contract. If its him or Parise, maybe they want Zac that badly.

They can unload a large contract and get a decent return. The caphit is such a good deal that his stock will still be high regardless.

Remember that I didnt start this thread to spread ek's smut around here. I am not asking for your opinions about his credibility, i just want to know how much you would give up to get him if he were available.

I would give up franzen, emmerton and a first for kovy. If you had to add another low prospect like a Ferraro so be it. Basically dump Johan's bad contract and swap it for kovy's bad contract. Who cares how much he makes, his cap hit is 6.6 which in today's market that's not too bad for an elite player. Yes it is long but so is franzens so I'd much rather kovy's contract than franzen cause hes twice the player. Do it!

Basically kovy's contract ends when he retires, so all that matters is how is he going to be producing when he is 35-40ish? If he can stay at a relatively high level with only a 6.6 cap hit he would be a steal.

That's an interesting point, if we were taking Kovys ridiculous contract we could potentially rid ourselves of Franzens daft contract. This has moved me from the "no" side to sitting on the fence.
