And, yeah, he might be a playoff rental for us but the guy is going to get paid 8 million dollars a year. That's something that the Flyers won't be able to afford. We'd have to move Gagne and Hartnell or Briere and Coburn or some combination of them. And I just don't see that much activity on the trade front.

Though, Kovy would be a fan favorite instantly. But, then again, he'd be a fan favorite just about anywhere.

Unfortunately, this isn't NHL10 so it isn't happening.
No kidding. Atlanta looks like they will be a playoff team, they will be doing the rentals.... Kovalchuk looks like he likes winning, I can see him reupping soon.

Oh, and the Flyers, if the season ended now, would be in the draft lottery for the right to take Taylor Hall..... Oops.
