It seems like the Devils are high up there on the list of teams who could feasibly trade for Kovalchuk. What would they give up though? It seems Bergfors would have to be the centerpiece to go the other way, but he doesn't make that much. Would they really move a dman like White or Oduya plus a forward like Zubrus or Zajac in addition to Bergfors for cap reasons? It seems like a lot.
^ I almost kind of called it earlier.
But man I am pissed and pray that we don't play the Devils in the playoffs. I was hoping he would go West.
how long did it take hull to buy into hitchcock's system? With the Olympic break there won't be much time to work someone in. It seems like a desperation move knowing Broduers only has so many seasons left. I still think their D will be exposed in a seven game series.
There were rumors that he didn't want to play in a town where hockey was front page so this works out great. Most people in NJ don't even know where the Devils play.
Hopefully, ATL goes into full sell mode and we can fleece them for a minor pick up like Afino although I think the Flyers need a PF more.
Well I'm glad this drama is over.... JVR and Giroux are where they belong, no way would I be happy with this trade if we would have given up either of our two future stars for a rental.
Soooooo.... what's next? Anyone getting ready to make the annual flyers fan Forsberg rumor thread?
I honestly don't see this team doing anything. Hopefully getting a healthy Parent and Syvret back will be our roster changes. They can't really trade Hartnell without getting a top 6 forward back. And once Parent and Syvret come back we'll have 9 NHL defenseman (if you include OKT as being an NHL defenseman). What else can they do? Get a goalie? Good luck with that.
