nothing says you can't offer a trade.

No, they haven't. Nice bit of sensationalism, though.

I now that you can offer the trade, but once Lou says that it didn't happen, can Dean refute that publicly or even to Kovalchuk's agent?

It won't matter in less than 24 hours...

Of course Lou says it didn't happen, you think IK wants to hear that?

DL doesn't need to waste time arguing through the media.

Here's a quote from Lebrun during his chat on espn.com:

"regarding Blues and Kovalchuk: no chance. Blues have ownership $$$ issues"

Kinda good to hear, on the other hand, it sucks for Blues fans to see their ownership have problems with dough.

I can't wait until the whole thing is over. As ShattStar03 said, I keep checking my computer every 5 min waiting for something to happen even though I know it can't. Tomorrow is going to be crazy and I'm trying to gear myself up toward disappointment. In case we don't get Kovy (I just can't picture it actually happening), I don't want to get too crushed. Dean will improve the team this offseason, whether that's Kovy or not.

Anyone remember when Sather was in Edmonton and used to ***** and moan about the fact that teams offered UFA's boatloads of cash? What a tool he is.

How can the Blues be willing to give Kovalchuk an extension at the trade deadline last year and not have the money to get him as a Free Agent?

Pierre LeBrun (4:13 PM)


The hedge fund that owns 75 per cent of the team has since told the team they are pulling out and Blues need to find new majority owner.

A hedge fund owned 75% of the Blues? Really?

The largest investor in the St. Louis Blues, TowerBrook Capital Partners, wants to sell its ownership stake in the NHL franchise.

TowerBrook -- a New York-based, private-equity firm -- never planned on being with the Blues for the long run. The company is friendly with Blues chairman and principal owner Dave Checketts and came to his aid back in 2006 when he purchased the club from Bill and Nancy Laurie.

Pierre U rock. Great Job as always. Another quick Kovy hit. Talking to Dean Lombardi, did you get the sense he is going to make a big run at this guy. I feel it may just push the Kings over the top. Kopi - Kovi. WOW

Pierre LeBrun (4:33 PM)


Kings will make a run at Kovy - yes
Nothing new, but what else is there to do right now?

Kings are on the rise, they feel this is their window to win now. They will go after Kovalchuk tomorrow _ number one forward available on market - plus go after a top-four d-man (they love Hamhuis)

I don't see how we'd fit both guys unless Kovalchuk signs a Hossa-esque deal with a cap hit around 5.5....don't see that happening though. I would cream myself if we got kovalchuk/hamhuis. Damnit...now i gotta go to capgeek.com to drool over the roster with both of those guys in it.

Only way I can see both happening is through a trade. There's no way there's enough money to land both through UFA.

That doesn't really sound like Lombardi though.. Isn't he always preaching on how he doesn't want to be a team with a "window" and that he doesn't really believe in that anyway? How he wants to build a perennial contender, not just a one and done team.

Oh well.. We'll find out soon enough

For both players, I'm sure Williams would be traded/waived and Simmonds would play with Kovalchuk-Kopitar. Clifford to the third line.
