Kovy back to ATL?
 
Imagine if Ilya realized, maybe the grass isint much greener somewhere else and decides to come back to Atlanta... I give it about 1% chance of happening but ya never know with these Russians..

John Cena* 06-08-2010 01:55 PM

I give it a .1 % chance of happening.

The franchise moved on.

The Maltais Falcon 06-08-2010 02:18 PM

If reports are to be believed, SKA is offering up a front lawn that would be 100% greener than any he'd find in the NHL if you catch my drift.

Don't want him back anyways. Can't build around him, especially considering we can't spend anywhere the cap.

aBurmistrov 06-08-2010 02:39 PM

Even though he's my favourite player, we are much better without him.

Sabreality 06-08-2010 02:45 PM

you'd all welcome him back with OPEN ARMS and you know it :nod:

its been the plan all along..turn down the fat deal (scare off potential suitors, increase KHL hype)...get back a SOLID return for ATL, while he gets a chance to 'learn' from a classy organization in the playoffs, 'promote' Waddell, the guy who traded him and name a new GM to 'bring him home'...8yrs $60m :sarcasm:

Worked for St. Lou and Tkachuk....

smilies are fun. :naughty:

Uncle Sam 06-08-2010 05:13 PM

Bergfors and Kovy would be awesome

Telfo 06-08-2010 05:50 PM

well if he did come back and the team continued playing the way they did without him it would be great.

but yea, no chance

No we are not.

Bergfors can't replace Kovy's 40 goals and the power play was worse without him.

GetPucksDeep 06-09-2010 07:42 AM

He's not coming back.

I don't think he goes to the KHL either.

The question is does he get a better deal in the NHL than either of the two reported offers the Thrashers made him?

He's not coming back; he's not going to the KHL and he won't get what the Thrashers offered him.

Plenty of KHL teams don't even make payroll every week. What good is a contract that may or may not be honored by a team that may or may not pay you and may or may not be around next season? That's a lot of risk to take on for playing in a tertiary league.

We were a better team without him. No one was looking for Kovy to do it all, and we played more of a team game.

fatschoonerrat 06-09-2010 12:04 PM

We are definitely better without him. You can't built a team around him, and you have to build a team around a player asking for that much money. No, thanks.

DungeonK 06-10-2010 03:44 PM

I'd like him back at 8 million a season, but he's not coming back even for 10, so you probably want to get that idea out of your head asap.

95% certain he's going to the KHL, been saying it for about a year now, now we just get to watch and wait.

No one in the NHL will offer him the 10 million a season Atlanta did.

Aaronxxx 06-10-2010 10:24 PM

he wouldn't have stayed with us even if we made him governor of georgia. he didn't want to be here. whoever he signs with won't have to pay him 10

He might sign to another team at around 8m and not the 10m ATL offered.
It's possible that he just REALLY didn't want to be on this team anymore. Not sure if that's come up yet but that's been on my mind as much as his possibility to going to the KHL.
50% is my estimate.

All of the reasons have been discussed at length. You'll have to go into some of the older kovy articles on the next few pages, but yes they were discussed at length.
