Montreal interested in Kovalchuk?
 
As per his blog entry, Kovalchuk D-DAY is coming soon and he will not be returning to Atlanta, so?

MONTREAL (AMONG OTHER TEAMS) IS INTERESTED!

Get it done and sign him long term Bob ;-)

To Atlanta:

Andrei Kostitsyn
Sergei Kostitsyn
Roman Hamrlik
David Fischer
1st round draft pick in 2010

To Montreal:

Ilya Kovalchuk
Mark Popovic

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kovalchuk
Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta


Note: You guys think Kovalev was treated like a god here? - LOL

This proposal isn't very good.
You get your superstar, but you give up your secondary players.

Oh good grief please don't ! if kovalchuck wants money he can
go back to russia.

I'd do that trade without even thinking, but I think we might have to include Subban instead of Fischer to get this trade done.

Marc the Habs Fan 01-02-2010 03:31 PM

:facepalm:

That is all.

There is 0.1% chance of the Habs getting Kovalchuk. Period. You can't pay 3 wingers something crazy like 20 M combined.

Do you remember the Hossa deal? It was for the following players: Armstrong, Christensen, Esposito and a 1st round draft pick!

Who is playing in the NHL regularly out of those players and picks now? - LOL

I would take Kovalchuk over Cammalleri, Gomez, Gionta any day of the week!

I was thinking the same, but I like him too much and think he is our future Niedermayer!

Kovalchuk's value is at rock bottom (relatively) right now... I believe he's a pending UFA, and it's already come out (last fall) that he won't re-sign with Atlanta.

surferdude99* 01-02-2010 03:36 PM

No point in trading for a rental that there is a 0% chance of re-signing with us

Marc the Habs Fan 01-02-2010 03:37 PM

And seriously...it's an EKLUND rumor. I can't believe some of you still get fooled by him.

I'm saying Both Kosty + Hamrlik + a top prospect and a pick is way to much for Kovalchuk. We'll effectively turn into Atlanta. Some okay young players, a hopeful young goalie, and a superstar. That's it. Hell, he wouldn't resign next year, he's making MINIMUM 9M if not more, and with Cammy -Gionta - Gomez you won't be affording that.

RoyBoyCoy 01-02-2010 03:47 PM

Eklund thinks "Hmmm how can I get most hits on my website? How about putting 'Kovalchuk' and 'Montreal' in the same rumor" GOLD JERRY GOLD!

Russian Warrior 01-02-2010 03:53 PM

WestIslander back at it again with some Eklund rumors... C'mon son!

Even my cat knows it's all BS...

BLONG7 01-02-2010 04:01 PM

oh boy...:pullhair:

uiCk 01-02-2010 04:06 PM

why isnt there a rumor thread, were you can merge threads like these, so they dont stand out like if it was a serious discussion?

totalrecall 01-02-2010 04:10 PM

I hope none of you went to his website, because that's exactly what he wants

There should be an automatic BAN for just mentionning that name. And why isn't that thread with the other useless proposals thread?

This is worst than spam.

RE-HABS 01-02-2010 04:15 PM

Eklund has the main teams as Chicago, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Philadelphia. And he goes as far as to say Toews from Chicago???

If that was on the table Atlanta would say thanks and here you go because your guy is all around better, younger and already signed to a cheaper contract!

Right off the top scratch Chicago off because they don't have the space and players named Kane, Toews, Keith and Hossa won't be involved.

He then says Frolov and Carter. What drop off in players from Toews to Frolov?

Carter would be a building piece in a Philly trade, but they would need to add another top tier forward or Dman to get Kovalchuk. If I am Waddell I say I want Carter, Giroux or JVR and 1st rounder.

LA, they have all the pieces in a trade but you better substitute Frolov with a name like Brown and then start adding some of those D prospects to the deal as well.

He then goes on to add the following teams; Edmonton, Boston, Toronto, the Islanders, and Montreal.

Edmonton would have to offer some good players like Hemsky and another roster player, top prospect and 1st rounder.

Boston, bye bye Lucic and maybe add Krejci too along with a 1st round pick, and Waddell should ask for Toronto's pick as they could end up with a lottery pick.

Toronto. They have nothing to offer unless they are sending Kessel and they can't as they have given up way too much to get him, and they have no 1st rounders till 2012 to give.

Montreal. We would have to offer a lot in prospects, as current roster players don't have a lot of carrying weight in trade. Pleks is good, but is a UFA himself, Cammarelli/Gionta/Gomez all have high contracts and probably carry NTC. Markov is untouchable and they don't need our goalies. We would have to try to trade the brothers and give a lot of prospects like Subban and Leblanc, maybe a 1st too.

Montreal won't be in the race for Kovulchuk.

He is speculating, he has no fact or contact.

Malakhov 01-02-2010 04:17 PM

Newsflash: 29 NHL teams interested in Kovalchuk

:shakehead

JGRB 01-02-2010 04:21 PM

Excellent post Re-Hab. Well said.

Montreal is not, and will never be, in the Kovalchuk sweepstakes.

As a matter of fact, I don't see him getting traded at all.

Two teams that come to mind that will throw the bank at him come July 1st is Toronto, and should Phoenix get it's ownership straightened out I believe they will get in on this to try to get that superstar.

No doubt Brian Burke has July 1st circled on his calender with the hopes of landing this guy, unfortunately he has a lot of other holes to fill and outside of keeping the on-ice product exciting I think his money is better spent elsewhere (such as trying to solidify the goaltending, getting a true #1 center, more Top-6 depth). They already have a mini-Kovalchuk in Kessel.

Phoenix on the other hand, like I said if they can get their act together.. They are a good team, imagine landing a player like Kovalchuk to bolster them? They'd be great for YEARS.

Wow, tempting to have the first "Lafleur-ish" player in Montreal since, well, the Flower himself. My first instinct was "No way!" when I saw that both K's and the Hammer would be gone; yet on second thought, Hammer's not getting any younger and the K's, well, these guys could be **** again by next month. Heck, little Baby K could be up to his whining old tricks by next week. So hmmm...Kovalchuk. No doubt this guy would be HUGE with the fans...truly the next Lafleur. We'd be like Kova-who? Saku Who? Stephane Who? Bobby Who? Mats Who? Yeah. Tempting for sure.

This team must be moved IMMEDIATELY. The NHL has no business running hockey ops in the frickin' desert!!!!!

Le Tricolore 01-02-2010 04:44 PM

He doesn't turn us into a Cup contender this year.

We can't afford him long term.

No thank you.

MoonlightGraham 01-02-2010 04:45 PM

It doesn't make sense for us to send valuable assets away to get Kovalchuk in return knowing there's no way we can sign him to a new contract this summer because we're already close to the cap without him.
