Thats what i was thinking. Why would Gainey go for a rental player only to TRY and make the playoffs. Whoever thinks that Kovalchuk would make us a contender is seriously mistaken. I love this team as much as the next guy but until we have some sense of consistency on all lines we arent going to contend for anything. We will obviously become better, but a contender ? Lets not get a ahead of ourselves.
That being said, depending on the price, I would do it in a heartbeat. Just to have Kovalchuk suit up as a hab and see what this team can do with him. Of course I would love for him to sign long term but thats going to depend on how he meshes with the team, which in my opinion is no guarantee.
Darth Joker's post makes alot of sense, with or without Kovalchuk long term.
