Your Kovalchuk Nightmare

Im in a keeper league and just traded for him honestly like a month ago.
So I essentially lost Gagner, 8th overall and Brouwer for nothing!

Whats your guys stories?

I traded Kovalchuk with Byfuglien for a few players a week before this debacle so I got out lucky actually.

A dude in my league lost him, but he deserves it! His asking price for him last year was Moulson, Spezza and Zetterberg. He's one of those guys who's so afraid to make a trade.

Two years ago I traded the 6th overall pick and Adam Foote for Kovalchuk and the 21st overall pick.

That 6th overall was Taylor Hall, and after next season Kovalchuk is gone, the 21st overall was Jamie McGinn. Meh. Not happy, but I keep his rights once he eventually decides to come to back.

In my dynasty league, I traded Stefan Noesen, Jussi Rynnas and the 6th overall pick(ended up as Morgan Rielly) for him last offseason.

Re-signed him to a two year, $6M/yr extension two days before he retired...

You traded Crosby+ for that? I wouldn't do it...

LOL to lose the best player in the world and one of the best prospects for Vanek and a second... ouch.

In fantasy now, I'm past trying to find the next great thing really, I just acquire players I like so I can root for players I like on Saturday night, ya know? But I did acquire Kovy recently...

Traded Pavel Datsyuk, Niklas Backstrom, Tim Connolly and Chris Brown to [another team] for Ilya Kovalchuk, Martin Hanzal, David Ullstrom, Tomas Vokoun, Jonas Gustavsson and a 2013 5th round pick.

Vokoun was parlayed into Andrey Makarov

Gustavsson became a throw-in in this trade...

Traded Jimmy Howard, Jonas Gustavsson, Derek Stepan and Philip Larsen to [another team] for Kari Lehtonen, Richard Bachman, Cody Eakin and Roman Josi

Ullstrom left unfortunately...he's a good player that many didn't know about.

It's over a season ago, but at the 11-12 trade deadling I traded Kovalchuk+Kessel for Ovechkin.

So guess I'm one of the luckier ones in this Kovalchuk saga.
