Kovy, fixes the power play. Would take a ton of pressure off of Gabby, its precisely what this team needs. Who cares if Parise is a Torts type of player? He is redundant in this lineup. Yes, he is more talented than Cally, but not by leaps and bounds, his points come off the same kind of hard work as Callahan's points.
I would LOVE to go back to the SIGN KOVALCHUK threads i started back in the day, or the TRADE FOR KOVALCHUK threads back in the day and see what some of you said then. I took a big time beating from a ton of people, especially Rangerboy (who i still consider to be one of if not the most knowledgeable posters on here) about him.
If Gaborik and Richards performed in the series, does the need for Kovalchuk really appear? What if you have Kovalchuk and he gets shut down? Don't you look like an absolute clown then? We weren't a Kovalchuk away from a cup, we were a Richards and Gaborik away from a cup.
We can go back and look at old threads, sure, I remember saying we should get Jeff Carter. Guess that makes me a genius too.
