This is among the worst trade proposals I've ever seen. I mean, were Kovy signed for 3 more years at anywhere from 6.5-7.5 m it wouldn't be bad, but if he were he wouldn't be on the market either.

definite no from Boston.

I dont think Boston does this for a signed kovalchuk let alone a UFA.

Yeah, the reason this deal won't happen is because the GM lacks balls.

Lucic is making 30 goal scorer money. His contract makes him to much of a risk for Atlanta to mess with. Lucic can only be the face of a franchise where fighting is as important to the team image as winning.

Boston and Philadelphia. Otherwise he is a 3rd line player.

Lucic is the most overrated and overpaid player on the bruins...yes i believe that...we can trade Krejci bc we have bergeron, Sob, and guys coming up...we will not win the cup with Lucic and Krejci....With kovvy playing with Savard and Bergy playing on the second line instead of third we have a much better shot

People in Boston think he is the greatest thing since Ray Bourque....

Kovy is a rental, and do you honestly think that taking away Krejci, Lucic, and Wideman and adding Kovy will magically make the Bruins a Stanley Cup favorite? If the answer is no then why do you make that trade? If you want to get rid of those three players you'd be better off making other trades to try to make the team better for the future rather than throwing them away on a rental that won't be able to win you a Cup by himself.

he's right, it's atrocious.

They didn't sign Krecji and Lucic to let them go for a UFA, Kovy or not. Further, look at what Hossa got, it won't take a deal like this to get Kovalchuk.

10m a year? No thanks, I'd rather go after Marleau in free agency. Plus, even if you wanted to sign him to a 10m a year deal, just do it in the offseason and use those three assets to get other players or picks.

Lucic at 4mill+ is a liability...might as well use that extra cash towards Kovalchuk

I would do it if I were Boston. All of those Bruins contracts are mistake signings. Lucic @ 4 mil is a cruel joke, Krejci isn't earning his paycheque either - he's still decent, but unnecessary with Savard/Bergeron, and Wideman can't even complete a dump-in without injuring his own teammate these days. Just a complete disaster. Boston would be lucky to shed all that salary/dead weight.

Kovalchuk would love Boston...just get him some good seats at a Celtics game and he'd probably sign. Boston's offence is pretty ordinary. This would be a great move. Savard+Kovalchuk, watch out Eastern Conference....

What a stupid generalization. Of course he should pick his fights and who he fights. Everyone should and mostly do! Who goes out there to only fight and look for fights to sit in the box for five minutes...


...besides the Leafs 4th line.

How is that fighting everyone working for the Leafs this year anways?


Lucic picks his fights and has been advised to do so to keep him on the ice. When he is on top of his game, his hits and offensive pressure down deep, mixed with his intensity and energy that he brings to the team make other teams make mistakes. Like him or not, he brings a rare ability to hit and apply pressure that many teams covet and see value in...

Ask Yzerman and the Team Canada crew who invited him to camp.

As for the OP, no thanks. Not even close. I agree the GM doesn't have the 'balls' to do it simply because it is the worst Kovalchuk proposal I have seen yet.

San Jose will sign Marleau. Do you really think he'll leave the Sharks playing on a meal-ticket line with Heatley and Thornton? Not unless someone offers him a ridiculous multi-year deal!

I don't mind including Wideman & Krejci, but I don't want anything to do with trading Lucic...Not making this trade has nothing to do with BALLS and everything to do with intelligence. Chiarelli has made some smart moves in my eyes. We need scoring but at what price and we need to lock up Kovalchuk in a long term contract...otherwise no dice.

I'd love to have Lucic on my team. Oh wait, I'm a Flyers fan. NVM.

I agree, but if you're willing to throw 10m a year at Kovalchuk a ridiculous multi-year deal is not out of the question.
