Guys - he went to the Devils, a team with an aging defense corps and goaltender, that now has to dump players in order to fit him in. He obviously went for the money.
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.
Seriously guys, Kings are my #2 team and I was absolutely rooting for Kovy to go elsewhere. His salary would have ruined this team, and Dean did the right thing by not allowing it. Instead of being bummed out, laugh at Jersey, they are going to pay for this for years.
Time to call my rep and officially cancel. I was holding out hope and maybe switch to a 10-game plan, but since it's clear that this team will only be marginally better, if it all, i'll just get $20 tickets off stubhub for a few games.
No, what most of you don't understand is that this team will regress.. It's sad to say, but most of the guys on the team know that Kovalchuk was an option but now that we'll have to settle for 2nd option guys, they'll all be disappointed..
Simon Gagné for Justin Williams sounds like a good swap, doubt it happens but DL better make a move soon or else fans will be super pissed..
