Shero: Ray Shero, Pittsburgh Penguins here.
Kovalchuk: I know.

Shero: Kovy, we wanna be in the Ilya Kovalchuk business.
Kovalchuk: I know.

Shero: We believe we have everything you need, right here. We have the ideal center for you. We have a captain to take the heat off you, and we have Stanley Cup pedigree for you. We also have a brand new arena. We would love to inaugurate it with a brand new superstar. What do you say.

Kovalchuk: How much?
Shero: We can probably go as high as $7 million annually, if you take a long-term deal.

Kovalchuk: Does Sidney hate Kovy?
Shero: Sid? No, not at all. Sid's ultra-competitive though so sometimes people may get the wrong idea.

Kovalchuk: Zhenya is happy?
Shero: When I told Geno we were going to make you a serious offer, he hung up the phone after a loud screaming noise. Is that a good thing?
Kovalchuk: Da.

Shero: So what do you say, Kovy?
Kovalchuk: Can I wear No. 17?
Shero: You would have to work that out with Michael Rupp.

Kovalchuk: Rupp...Rupp...is big dude no?
Shero: Yeah, he's a big guy but he is a great guy. He'd listen to you. So, do we have a deal, Kovy?

Kovalchuk: You want destroy Devils?
Shero: How did you guess? We're also talking to Paul Martin.
Kovalchuk: Martin. Good player. Not good Prime Minister of Canada."


See Zip, it wouldn't be that hard.



This whole business about complicated decisions and negotiations is clearly overblown. I am a believer. Home town discount to play with Zhenya and Sid who doesn't hate!
