Kovy's interview three weeks ago to the russian sport daily sport-express. I have to find it. Where he laments the danny's situation in atlanta, says they are good friends and he must see what will happened to him first, to make his own move. No wonder the guy does now want sign with atlanta, when Heatley is not there. I feel Kovy is coming to Ottawa. Believe it or not.
Yeah, I remember that interview. The reporter asked whether it was true that Kovalchuk told some other journalist that he'd only play with Heatley. Kovalchuk answered that it was all a repugnant media exaggeration, and that he only said that "Dany is my friend and a great player, and I would want him to stay" - something of this sort, which is what one expects him to say about his friend (not like he's gonna go: "I don't care if Dany is or not on the team, let him do whatever he wants, Georgia prrrrride!!!"). However, from this quote that other North American journalist inferred that Kovalchuk won't sign if Heatley leaves. Well, it sounds interesting enough to make the headlines - but I am alarmed at such a naive conviction that Kovalchuk is about to leave because of this so-called "Dany ain't here" caprice. Atlanta cannot afford to lose him. Period.
