He never wants to use cap space. These guys will look like real effing geniuses when there is no lockout and Cap Space is playing his 6th year for Manchester.

When are you going to call up Cap Space? The kid is effing ready.

If he wanted to take a lesser cap hit, he'd sign with New Jersey, knowing the team and stuff.. It makes sense, I bet it's a low cap hit, they don't want to risk losing Parise and Kovalchuk knows that.. I bet the contract will surprise most of you, Lou is a boss, he knows how to work it.. Lombardi on the other hand should stick to the draft and go back to being a scout, he can't manage a team for ****

Injury-prone Gagner for a year? Rad. LW will be sick when both he and Smyth are injured. Unbelievable.

The guy wanted to play here. Can't risk having to "give away" a 3rd liner in the future.
uhhh, obviously not???

So I ask, knowing we all wanted the talent, but seeing his decision, did we REALLY want the player?

His motivation seems clear, now. Doesn't want to sign for the future....just wants to sign for the money.

Time to move on.
I said Kovi was about the money from day one, About 90 percent of these Pro athletes are always about how much cash they are going to make.

If the difference is two million a season and you are going to a franchise with a PROVEN GM and a team that has won Cups, well, it doesn't make him look like an asshat or a greedy SOB.

Fact of the matter is LA hasn't done ****. Ever. That continues today.

The guy has earned a pay day and while we think LA was the best option, you don't know what LL has told him or what LL has up his sleeve.

Whatever it is, it's better than what DL has coming. The master schooled the pupil on this one.

I don't want Kaberle or Simon Gagné.. I wanted Kovalchuk ****, I'm so angry..

Confirmation. Kings are definitely out of Kovalchuk sweeps... He came back with a big NO. Gagne for Justin Williams looks very possible.

Until we here the term and price of his contract with New Jersey, it's hard to reach any conclusions about who failed in this situation.

Totally disappointing, however. I was allowing myself to believe all that $5.7m cap hit nonsense.

I think i am more upset at the fact that while we were trying to court Kovy, a lot of the top-end guys (notably defensemen) have signed. Now we're left holding our dicks.

If he was just about money he would have gone to the KHL, or signed with Atlanta.

LA has a lot going against them, we as kings fans just have to get use to it.
