No, it's all good. Healthy debate is always OK by me. If you really wanted to see Kovalchuk in an Avs' sweater, that's your prerogative. I'm simply offering a different point of view.
Another way to look at this: Kovalchuk would give the Avs 40 goals for around $8M (just a guess). Is it reasonable for Sherman to think that he could get that same 40 goals - or even more than that - by developing Jones and Mueller? And combined, the two would cost less per year than $8M?
Now, hockey doesn't work quite that way on the ice, but I can see Sherman's point in doing what he's doing.
