Is he coming over?
Heard he was staying in Europe "due to personal reasons", time will tell
Streit (pending UFA) would be an interesting deadline pickup for us IMO - but we seldom do business together.

Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration.... but you get the idea.
They had a vote on the Devils board who the new captain would be. Kovalchuk was the overwhelming leader.

I would say the C to Kovalchuk was actually widely expected.

It's confirmed that he'll be back this week after wrapping up some family issue.

Same, but you can't expect rational answers on the NYR board (Devils hatred) of HF (Russian factor). Kovalchuk is actually the obvious choice for captain. Bryce Salvador might be the least accomplished captain the entire NHL. The least illustrious captain in Devils' history?

Kovalev signs a 1-year deal with the Panthers.

Thank god, maybe people will stop bringing him up as a free agent option for us.

Surprised he's really back. Can't imagine he has a lot left in the tank.

This is the Devils organization we're talking about. They just aren't gonna pick a guy like Kovalchuk. Even if they had been considering him, after the recent KHL business, there was no chance.

Kovalev is one of those options I refer to as a "mascot".

It'd be cool to see him in the uniform but he shouldn't actually be playing unless it's a charity event. Just like a mascot.

The Islanders should toll Vishnovsky's contract. Come back next season when its a full 82 game season.

I have the feeling the Isles think their team can actually push for a playoff-spot with the short season. Visnovsky certainly helps there. He actually would round out a pretty solid, though far from great Top-4:
Streit-Visnovsky
Hamonic-MacDonald

Enlarge the picture and check out the beads he's wearing around his neck.

DiPietro's been on a lockout long acid trip?

Knowing he's not the guy on LI anymore, I think DP has been exploring "other" hobbies. Spiritual journey. Gnarly.
