I don't think anyone is saying they don't want him. I personally am saying I don't want him if he cost us too much in assets and the contract takes up too much CAP space. I'm not a CAP expert but I'd imagine using $9m+ on one player is going to cause some implications down the line. You won't see me complaining if Kovalchuk becomes a King but I don't think it is the great fit that everyone is clamoring about. He is a scoring winger which is something we need but is he worth the cost? Just because he scored a gazillion points doesn't mean he'll make this team win. They will probably win more games off his production but is he going to take this team to the Cup? That is what we all want.
