My thought exactly. We're still missing that elite sniper. Kovy can get lost at 100M but I would've loved to have him in that 65-80M range. It's water under the bridge though...

Hopefully the Devils' 1st round pick. Should be top 5.

The term "sour grapes" comes from the fable of the fox being unable to reach the grapes and as a result, comes to terms with it by believing the grapes to be sour.

Kings fans don't have to believe it.

They see what Kovalchuk has done to New Jersey (so far) and are glad that they their team isn't being affected like that.

It's more like, Kings fans should have been careful for what they wished for this off-season.

I'm not mad or whatever about the whole Kovalchuk situation, but I do enjoy when a crowd all gets behind something together, it makes a good atmosphere, so I'm fine with people boo-ing. I do hope it doesn't take away from Matty's night though...

I'd rather have a better team than a better player, but what do we know? We've got ZERO championships and last time we had the BETTER player (Gretzky) it didn't really work out all that well for us.

I think you may be taking that out of context. Kovy was mum on the situation the entire time from what I remember. I think the quote you are talking about came after the initial contract with New Jersey was rejected, but wasn't aired until after the final contract was all said and done Ilya was quoted as telling Jay, "It's New Jersey or Russia" in regards to the chaos that ensued after arbitration.

The commish doesnt need to give compensation. The lack of any puck moving defenseman, and your current record are all the compensation we need.

P.S. Your team should have some very nice tee times come mid-April 2011

... Oh come on now, Zad. Agents are the employees of the player. That agent doesn't do anything the player doesn't want him to do. That's like saying a GM uses an owner as a back-loaded puppet when it comes to the club's side of negotiations. Doesn't happen.

... Wait - how do you know that it wasn't the other way around, that the Kings didn't waste Kovalchuk's time?

And this isn't necessarily directed at you, Zad, but this crowing by Kings' fans over ten games is pure at its worst. Act like you've been there before; is that too much to ask???

Poni 2 goals, 4 points, +2, 23 hits, 9 blocked shots and 0 scratched games

Kovalchuk 3 goals, 6 points, -3, 2 hits, 0 blocked shots and 1 scratched game

...13 goals in 37 games with the Devils...

If you think your team is better this year than last, you need to put the pipe down and get some fresh air!

You may have us confused with your fan base.

And tell me the last time the Devils didn't have a slow Oct. then went right to the top? Maybe you guys should win something before you start talking smack about the Devils.

Tell me the last time your team overspent 100MM on one player and couldn't ice an entire roster as a result? Tell me the last time your 100MM primadonna missed a team meeting and got benched? And tell me the last time you had a new coach that doesn't seem to have a handle on his players?

Just asking?

Kovalchuk never played for the Kings, right?

Your acting like he left them and signed in NJ.

Well we got Poni before kovy talk, so we actually ended up getting Mitchell in response to losing out on Kovy. If kovy signed here, we wouldnt have got mitchell

Kovy - 6 points, -3

Mitchell - 5 points, +5

I think it went well
