Man he can't answer a single question straight... He's worse than Lombardi
Maybe that is why they could not get a deal done.

This whole thing is travesty.

"Something else will come up"??? That is what our GM is telling us? Seems like something else went to Tampa and Dean doesn't know what he will do.

I mean, did I miss the posts condemning this statement? Wow. I think this qoute was more disheartening then the Kings lowball offer.

Major laughs at those, like SFHomer who say better off. If Dean got him for the same contract, you guys would be loving the hell out of it.

We all knew that a 100 Million contract wasn't going to happen so why all this drama when it didn't?

Probably because most people including Devils fans thought that this was a done deal
and he was signing as a King this week and getting a tatoo shortly thereafter.

Lombardi could sign OJ Simpson to play with Kopitar next season and he would say it was a good move.

So basically the Devils get Kovy until he retires for a cap hit ($5.88 M) lower than Ryan Smyth's cap hit ($6.25 M)?

And does anyone think Kovy will finish out the last years of his contract (age 39-44) for $550k/season?

No reason for you to enter. Kovalchuk is in the title of the thread, easy to avoid.


Lombardi is already trying the, "it's too early" spin for not going after Kovalchuk hard enough. It's not like Kopitar is 35. Uh, Dean, Kopitar will probably not be in LA when he is 35.

BTW - Does anyone know the average number of years a GM stays with 1 team? I'm sure Lou knows that he will be long gone before Kovalchuk's contract expires.

Dean needs to build the best possible team every year, he is always worried too much about the future. Dean, you may not be here more than 3 more years anyways. He probably won't be around to see Doughty and Kopitar in their primes.

There was one for $6 million, but Dean was trying to get it for $5.33 million.

Wasn't the right fit, at the right price, at the right time.
