Yeah, I would definitely not be surprised if Lou got pissed and pulled his offer. The longer this has gone on (after the first day anyway), the more I've felt he isn't coming back.

It shouldn't have taken this long in the first place.

It seems when you are in the hunt for Kovy, you follow this cycle:

1) No chance
2) In the running
3) Leading the Pack
4) Signing imminent
5) Out of the game

Lou makes it impossible to read him though. "Don't worry about my cap" could mean we aren't even signing Kovy so it's a waste, or it could mean 'I got this, don't worry'

Who ****ing knows, just sign already!!!

Well if there is one benefit of all this waiting it has to be getting us closer to the Canucks board.

I assume he would have a "deadline" on his offer (to avoid having it shopped around ...and to move on to his next plan if it's not happening). Maybe yesterday was the "deadline" ... rumors were he was going to take it ... someone else inquired ... Kovy dawdled ... and Lou's offer "expired"

... or Lou is trying to clear cap space first

... or something else

I've gotta wonder if Lou doesn't have multiple offers out there for Kovy. Sorta like "I'll give you 7 yrs @ $60 million, or 12 yrs @ $105 million, or" etc... Could it be Kovy is not just choosing between teams but between offers from the same team? ...Just a thought.

My feeling is that he is a goner, let's all prepare ourselves for it.
Hopefully Lou tells us what went wrong and if he has to throw Grossman under the bus he should.

we are prepared for both possibilities.

we just want one so we know what to do with ourselves and adjust our lineup possibilities and stuff

Love seeing that the Islanders were never serious for Kovy.

I trust Lou. It's pretty obvious he's doing the best that he can. Whatever happens, I'll be fine with it. I'm just ready for it to be over now.

I guess no news conference, Lou would have called for one by now.

This has been a huge emotional rollercoaster ride... Kovalchuk has been my #1 priority all along as you all know, but right now I just want him to make a ****ing decision!

Yesterday I felt really confident that we'd get him, today it's the total opposite. I just don't know what to feel/think anymore....

If there was going to be a press conference it would have been called 2 hours ago at the very least.

i just want this to end as much as the next person but i feel like he is going to stay due to the fact that grossmans tweet from last night stated "...details to be finalized..." to me meaning kovy has made a decision and there just hammering out the details/ killing time for Lou to make a move

Someone should drive by the arena and see if a podium is set up in the entry tower. I can't deal with this anymore.

We get him, awesome. But now we have cap problems.

We don't get him, we still have a very good team without cap problems.

It's win-win.
