Anyone think Pittsburgh would deal J. Staal for Kovy and Plekanec + some sort of pick/prospect?

I would guess that if Gainey gets any interesting offer before his forced rest is over, he's gone.

Listen Scooter, you may like Kovalev, but no one player is bigger than the team. Not now, not then, not ever.

No. The entire team is making Kovalev pay, when he's not the problem.

Sore move by Gainey.

I think so. Him and the coaching staff are light years apart.

Gainey will keep his coaching staff.

So...

Maybe Gainey will get a 2nd and a 3rd from a western conference team.

If he wants to have $$$ for another big trade, he needs to get rid of Kovy for nothing (no $) that would be a burden on the cap.

like I said in the other thread, I think Gainey wants to see how the team reacts and plays with Kovalev out of the lineup. If we play well he's as good as gone (imo).

He is a big part of the problem. He was 2 years ago, too.

Don't cry. He 's gonna be a UFA and would not had been re-signed by Gainey.

He's been playing uninspired hockey for a better part of the season. He's your go to guy. And the fact that he hasn't been able to deliver means that there is something wrong.

you mean 3 of 4 years.No need for him here if he doesn't want to perform at 100%,around all our young players that attitude should not be tolerated and the Habs are doing the right thing

He's on pace to produce the same amount of pts as Ryder with the same salary contract. He's a really great deal for his talent level (which is unmatched by anybody on the team).

Kovalev just needs to take a break and needs to clear his mind. Expect a better Kovalev when he is back.

Also, why would they give him time off if they want to trade him? Doesn't make sense to me.

Is Gainey traveling with the team?

Maybe on Thursday he'll meet with Shero in Pittsburgh face to face and make a deal for Whitney on D for Kovalev and another player/prospect?

Crosby gets his winger and Pittsburgh doesn't sell the team/farm for a UFA again...?

Kovy is gone! Sergi rides the bus...

That was his last game in Montreal. I hope the message is clear enough for the young players. Sergi needs to ride the bus for a while so he can appreciate playing in the big league. A little late, but thanks Bob.

Bingo!

I feel the above is exactly right.
