Kovy would be a good backup plan in case Kreider needs more time in the A.

Kovys kid plays locally. My buddys son played against him at superior the other day. Kovy was there. From appearance...He didn't look like he will be playing anytime soon.

I am always a bit miffed by the love affair with Kovalev from some of the Rangers' fans. I thank him for '94, and thats it. I remember when dissecting the future after '94, he was a huge part of it, and he never lived up to it. And, like Messier, he was embarrassing in his 2nd stint. He was great at times, notably in Pittsburgh, but hes a borderline HOF talent who could have been a sure-fire thing, and just someone who cant play in NY. Maybe we should get the troll back for him.

Kovalev again in NY? With Torts? With the way this team plays??? No thanks.

About 20 years ago I watched Kovalev play live for the first time.

Thats all I got.

Don't see the harm.

3rd line with Hagelin and Boyle

Pushes Pyatt to the 4th line with Halpern and Rupp.

I'd like to see it.

While I appreciate the question... "past his prime" is a gross understatement.

He's done. Period.

Also, I'll add that even if he had something left in the tank (which he doesn't), he wouldn't remotely fit in with this group, or with the plan.

He wasn't the only one. Better options out there than a semi retired Kovalev

I don't get it either. Other than the 94 playoffs, he was a better Penguin than a Ranger.

If we're looking for old veterans, I'll take Andrew Brunette.

Kovy's been on the decline since 2009 and he's turning 40 next month. Work your magic, Glen.

I know, but I'm saying in the context of Kovalev, if we were going to sign an old vet, I'd take Brunette.

Not gonna lie, even though my mind says no, for nostalgia purposes I wouldn't mind him back for the Powerplay.

Why? why? WHY! No! We have better options and we can probably bend someone over for a trade for something better. Dude's washed up

Not sure if there's a purpose but can't be too bad if it's a dismissable contract.

I'd rather have Petr Sykora.

Torts and Kovalev is a bad, bad match.

I thought signing old has-beens is not the Rangers trademark anymore? Has everyone forgotten how well that worked out 10 years ago?

Never going to happen.

Kasparaitis did one of the best things a Rangers player has done so far post-lockout, in making that Olympics video with Tyutin. For the life of me, I can't find it anywhere online and I look for it a lot

"This is my wife, Ingelaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. She's mad because we beat Sweden yesterday."

"This is Italian police officer, this is how they stand"

"This is Toots. Say 'hi' Toots"
"Hi."
Haha I loved that one. Your best bet is probably to drop Jim Cerny a line, if it's in the NYR archives somewhere he should have access to it. He's pretty responsive to fans.
