Just for discussions sake!

Kovalchuk

P. Kane

Neither fan base wants either of these two players moved but i'm bored and looking for reasons to put off my homework so humor me.

Chicago gets an elite scoring winger who is on a very long contract BUT his cap hit is going to be about $2-$3 million less than Kane's when Kane is up for a new contract IMO. Getz and Perry got almost $9 mil and Toews and Kane are better than Getz and Perry so it wouldn't be too outlandish to suggest Kane will make more.

New Jersey loses their franchise player but gets a new one in Kane who is much younger and they wont have to pay him until he's 43.

Kovy would be a upgrade over Kane

Nope.

Kane is better and younger and doesn't have that ridiculous contract.

Blackhawks get boned. Kovalchuk's contract will be real bad near the end.

Care to provide some sort of context, or is that the entirety of your contribution?

Am I reading CapGeek right? Would the Devils have to carry a 13.75mm cap hit penalty for the last two years of his contract if he splits with two years left?

How is Kane better? Kovy is superior to Kane defensively, is a superior goal scorer, is much more physical. Kane is a better playmaker for sure, but that's all.

Kane is better, younger, cheaper. What is there to discuss?

lol Kovalchuk is better by pretty much any measure you can think of.

Reminds me of the Kessel better than Semin nonsense.

Stanley Cup winning goals?

Kovalchuk is a freak of nature. No way do the Devils trade him, even if it's for a talent like Kane. kovy's the best winger in the league, IMO.

You talking about the Kovalchuck that gives the puck away 3X's more than he steals it?

I'm talking about the Kovalchuck that played more minutes then any other Devils forward on the best PK in the history.

Can't argue with that though it's not likely we see a bigger SCF gift than Leighton in the next hundred years.

Kovalchuk could drink Kane into a coma and not get as much as a buzz. Kane is a fratboy, Kovalchuk is an enormous Russian village man reared on vodka. If he didn't become a hockey player he'd be the guy you see on Russian tractor dash cams fighting bears over moonshine.

Kovalchuk once fought Mike Green so it's kinda the same.

Because he gets double-shifted on the powerplay and sits at the point missing half of the snipes he takes but when one goes in everybody freaks out about how good he is? He's treated like Stamkos because, well, he's a poor man's Stamkos. Even strength points don't lie.

That's not very flattering of Kane

Zubrus/Parise/Elias/Henrique all spent more time on the PK last year, this is a total lie.
