Man you guys make and awful lot of assumptions. I guess you read what you want to read.

He said they "have a guy". Could it not be possible he is talking about any number of players (Marleau etc)? It doesn't even have to be a Free Agent. How you guys spin that to make it sound like "that guy" is Kovalchuk is beyond me. Maybe he is but I really don't see how you determine that from that little blurp. This is what I'm referring to:

“It’s just pounding away. You can make fun of all my charts, but you end up looking at 50 different options. `If this happens, that happens. If that happens, this happens.’ I guess the good part is, it’s safe to say we’ve got a player. At least the box is filled.”
Do we have any evidence that he inquired about Kovalchuk and it wasn't the opposite (Atlanta offering him to LA)? He says "he didn't get the guy in New Jersey" but he could easily have been called by Waddell looking for some of the Kings' players/prospects.
