If Gainey can't get anything for Kovalev, then it's a guarantee that he will sit him out the rest of the season.

This situation relates a lot to the Islanders and Yashin two years ago. They bought out the rest of his contract, after failing to move him.

Fortunately, this is the last year on Kovalev's contract.

Dallas or Pittsburgh.

Calgary doesn't need Kovalev anymore.

This makes everyone on the team accountable. Its unfortunate Kovalev had to be used to set an example, but it sets the bar. "You suck and dont put in any effort, you're done and I dont care who you are." It should light a fire under most guys. Sergei doesnt want to produce, hes off to Hamilton. I think Bob is sending the right message. Also, with all the reports about problems in the dressing room, it could be that Kovy was a distraction. Who knows, but good move. This team needs a kick in the ass, and this is it.

don't he have a semi no-trade clause so that we can't ship him in the west?

maybe he needs another day off? not that he has not had any the last 10+ games? although he can be one of best in league, I believe his time is up in montreal and time to get some value back and fit some pieces to this broken puzzle as of late? what do you think?

Technically, Gainey did fire Kovalev. One someone tells you, you're sent home and we don't want you near the company/team, that results in "You're Fired!".

The only reason why Kovalev still has ties here, is because he is under contract and Gainey is obviously having a very difficult time in moving him.

I think PIT could pay a premium for him ... but it would be in competition with us for a playoff spot.

you should seriously change the thread title.

It implies that "Kovalev is fired from the team" is a direct word for word quote by Gainey..

this board looks more and more like the RDS' one, I guess a lot of "fans" invaded the boards here.

Different usage of words and vocabulary, different path same ending result.

IF he is traded, it is NOT going to be to an Eastern Conference team.

My guess would be Dallas or Anaheim.

In other news, Sergei Kostitsyn has been sent down to Hamilton.

Thoughts?

I think we gave if enough chances...and hopefully we can trade him and get a few good assests.

Seriously, why is "Kovalev fired from the team" in quotes. He did not say that.
