True.

And Tampa Bay was in no position to keep Lecavalier....

And Pittsburgh was in no position to retain Malkin....

The Devils were in no position to retain Elias a couple of summers back....

Sens were in no position to retain Heatley or Spezza....

And so on.

"Facts" one learn here on HF are fascinating.

If the vultures wish to dream of a future Kovalchuk deal, no one is stopping you. But the rationale behind it is wishful thinking at this point.
