GM WADDELL TELLS KOVALCHUK TO EXPECT A TRADE SOON


Quote:

Thrashers general manager Don Waddell met with the star forward on Wednesday and told him to expect a trade to another NHL team over the next few hours or days.

There is no indication that any deal with a specific team is imminent, but the Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, Calgary Flames, New Jersey Devils, Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers are teams who continue to express interest.
McKenzie has a list of potential suitors...

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=308816

Quote:
Philadelphia Flyers: The Flyers are another team that likes to chase the big game, but their cap situation is extremely tight and there's a real legitimate question whether they have the desire or the cap space going forward to sign Kovalchuk to an extension. Still, Flyers' GM Paul Holmgren has been talking a lot to Waddell. The names that keep popping up out of Philadelphia are forward Scott Hartnell and defenceman Matt Carle, both of whom are under contract for three years and two years, respectively, but Philadelphia would have to off-load more salary than that to make it work.

So there is obviously some interest from Philadelphia but it doesn't “feel” like really intense interest.

Maybe there's another team out there in the weeds that we don't know about, but if you look at it logically, it's difficult to come up with one outside of Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Jersey, New York Rangers and Philadelphia. That said, sources say there is most definitely a “wild card” team, which has yet to be mentioned as a candidate, with legitimate interest.

He'll get traded by the end of the week, which means there is probably still two more days of this. And pretty much every single team has sources that say they are involved and ones that say they are not going after him, so I would expect Atlanta to wait until Friday and decide which offer they get is best.

God I hope not. The Rangers don't really seem to have enough to muster up to get him anyway.

Hopefully he goes anywhere out west.

Frankly I'd love for the Penguins to waste nearly $30m in cap space on 3 players.

There's no way the Pen's can afford Kovie Malkin and Crosby long-term, and still ice a team surrounding them.

I don't know, I'm sure they're willing to risk it considering they will suck fairly soon.

The Penguins lose all of their depth and all we need to do is shutdown 1 line then... plus they would have to resign Kovalchuk and only two of their defenseman are locked up past this year. And guess what, neither of them are Gonchar or Letang! Sounds great to me.

I like the part of the article that says he will be traded within "the next few hours or days." Could you be any more obvious and yet vague at the same time? I would love Kovy but I don't see him coming here. Who knows though, I never would have thought that Jokinen trade would have gone down though.

Hartnell and Carle? Sign me up.

and yes, that would be enough salary wise to get it done THIS season. They could even re-sign him at $8.5ish and we would be ok, you know, until we decide we need an actual goalie.

Luckily this franchise doesn't believe in that.

Someone vandalized Kovalchuk's wiki.

I don't think that would be close. It would take one of Carter, JVR, or Giroux plus additions of differing degrees to land Kovy in Philly. And ultimately the Flyers don't have (at least this year) something most teams would have to give to get him, which is a 1st round pick.

Well... we might not be getting him...

UPDATE at 9:20 p.m.: According to Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com, the Flyers are not in the running anymore. Team sources told Panaccio that the team fears signing Kovalchuk, who is can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, would "mortgage our future." Kovalchuk is reportedly seeking more than $10 million per season, and the Flyers don't appear willing to pay that.

TSN quiz between periods - where is Kovie headed?

McGuire - LA
Peca - Flyers
McKenzie - Boston

My pick for Flyers to add some (cheap) scoring down the stretch - if Boston keeps stinking - add ol Mark Recchi to play with Gags and Richie.

Only reason I say that is because Cullen is 3-4 years younger then Whitney is (and supposedly Whitney is asking for a 3 year contract).


Ponikarovsky I see going to Pitts.
