Around Hockey VI (All Non-Jackets Hockey talk in here)

Nashville acquires Sergei Kostitsyn for UFAs to be Dan Ellis and Dustin Boyd.

Typically Kostitsyn is not a player you'd see Nashville acquire, but he does have top 6 talent, and they weren't signing those 2 players anyways, so a good move for the Preds I think.

Great move by Poile, Kostitsyn is a skilled guy who along with his brother wore out his welcome in Montreal. Poile was going to lose Ellis and Boyd in a few days for nothing.

When you take into account he also got Ryan Parent for Hamhuis's rights, he is taking lemons and making lemonaide.

Boyd is RFA, so unless they didn't tender him he would still be around.

Any predictions as to where Kovalchuk goes? I'm guessing 10year/100million to the Kings

I too think it will be the Kings, but I'd rather have him stay East, we need one of this year's top 8 to fall backwards. Hopefully a team like the Rangers can dump some salary and get Kovy the same way they dumped Gomez to sign Gaborik.

If the Kings were to get him, I don't think you're going to see $10 million/year. They don't have quite that much cap room. I could see another deal like Hossa's where the numbers up front are big, but the term is long enough that the cap hit is lower. I just get a feeling some dark horse team will get involved in the bidding.

I'd gotten the impression he'd worn out his welcome in North America, but apparently he wants to stick around. Maybe some sanity's returning?

Hell, I dunno. All I know is that my initial reaction was along the lines of "zomgwtflol".

$100 million you say? Well, get on the phone Howson!








Actually, I just wanted to at least give one token mention of the Jackets and Kovy, just so we don't feel left out. As was well-said in a post on Kovy's potential destination in the mains...

Just because they're the only team I haven't seen fans go 'KOVALCHUK!?' to.

Seems good for Toronto, but I always liked Stalberg, he will be very good.

Versteeg is wildly overrated. Chicago got a pretty good return.

Meszaros the the Flyers for a 2nd Round Pick. That's the 5th defensemen on the Flyers with a cap hit greater then 3 million.

Tanguay to Calgary at $1.5 million. For those keeping track, that's less than we're going to be paying Ethan Moreau.

What difference does it make? Do you think Moreau is moveable without an NMC?

It also pretty much sets the value for what we're going to be stuck paying Anton Stralman.
