i don't think anyone on the team would have a problem with it, and that's all that matters.

That team has a ******** of ex-NHLers.

I was watching a highlight video and like 10 names stood out to me. Tikhonov, Thoreson, Semenov, Prucha, Kalinin, Grebeshkov, F. Fedorov, Artyukhin, Afinogenov, and now Kovalchuk. Probably a couple guys that played a handful of games as well.

Zharkov plays for the CSKA (4 letters), Kovy for the SKA (CKA in Russian; 3 letters). It`s pretty simple. lol

He did, but using him as a coach. haha

As for the "issue", it`s slowly coming along. Him and Zajac are a good pair.

Injuries are less frequent than in the NHL. Not saying it can`t happen, but it`s less likely.

At first I was like "I should counter with Oduya", but then I realized it`s a joke, and a good one.

Anyways, Zharkov scored the first goal in this game, he's number 11. On this goal he was playing on a line with the two Radulovs.
No, I think this thread already kind of established itself as a KHL thread, no need to make more.

Oh, and he better plays with Radulovs rather than drinks with them.

if a list is made of the 10 best defensemen in the history of the devils, oduya would be on it.

want proof?

stevens would be on the list, right? well, he has a career shooting percentage of 6.0.

oduya? clocking in at 4.9. 4.9!!! thats almost 5.

i know, i know...you cant just use a simple percentage- that doesn't give you the whole picture. so:

Career Hits:

kovalchuk: 85 over 11 years
oduya: 190 over EIGHT years!



these are facts, people

Is Jay Grossman implying that Kovy is the Devils captain already?

Both Zidlicky and Plekanec will play for 1CZK, Jagr (as the owner of HC Rytiri Kladno) will only cover the insurance. Nice gesture.

Now you have my attention.

EDIT: well, I hope he didn`t mean what we already know - that he got the C in SKA. But it sure sounds like Grossman will soon be found in the river Hudson. Lou mad.

I don't think he knows anything that we don't know yet.
I think it's just been assumed, and probably rightly so, that Kovy will get the C here.

Both Lou and Pete have said that naming a C is at the bottom of the list of priorities... and we're not even sure if there'll be a season yet at this point.

We've been putting Boy Meets World on at work every morning... so I've been placing subtle Boy Meets World references in every day situations and seeing look alikes everywhere.

But... I don't see it.

People keep ragging on the jersey, to me it looks like the '80 Team USA jersey more than the Ranger jersey.

I don't think he is implying... I think he flat out states it as a fact.

Glad to hear it.

I can't wait to watch Kovy fly around the rink again in a Devils uniform.
