Grossman is probably bleeding Lou for anything he can get.

I hate sports agents as much as lawyers.

This is the flip side of that coin. Every one is so starved for instant information, that the longer a guy holds out like this, the more **** gets thrown out there, I actually kind of wish this was like it was 10, 15 years ago, I'd have to wait for the paper every day to find out wtf's going on.

Roll outta bed put coffee on, go get paper "Oh nothing Kovy today eh? Oh well time to start the day" Seems far healthier than F5'ing the **** out of HF and Twitter
Best, best thing written here in a long while.

I've been following this saga during my trip out west and back as well as I could.

Last night I heard from a former Devil employee who is close to one of the VPs that the deal with Kovalchuk is done, but because of Probert's passing the team didn't want to make a formal announcement and overshadow it.

Take that for what it's worth. I have no reputation here, I lurk more than anything. But this info is from the same guy who told me about the Kovy trade before it was announced last season.

Just thought I'd post it and see if it all pans out.
Wasn't the Kovalchuk-Devils deal reported at 1:30 PM? Probert didn't die until like 5 PM.

Did Lou somehow know Probert was gonna die 3 1/2 hours before it happened? If anyone was capable of knowing someone's future before it actually happened, it would be Lou I guess

Let us know what position he had with the Devils otherwise it holds no credibility.
He worked in the Communications Dept. for 20-something years.

I did say, "Take it for what it's worth," and "I have no reputation here." I'm not trying to stir up a frenzy, but just pass along what I heard.

Come on.
Very disrespectful. I'm disappointed in you man. You're a fan of Ken Daneyko aren't you? Kenny had the same sort of problems as Probert. But Bobby was clean for the past little while, it's possible it eventually caught up to him. But Bob Probert had respect all over the league, he was a goon, but he was a player too. He fought, he scored and he played. He's the way a fighter should be, not a Derek Boogaard. Lou would have tremendous respect for a player like Probie, a guy that tried his best to exorcise his demons, so yeah, it could be held up by his passing, a guy respected all over the league for being a nice man, and a tough S.O.B.

We'd like Kovy to sign, obviously, it'd be nice to get it over with. But a man dying is far more important than a guy making 100M dollars, or whatever he'll end up signing for.

Lots of thoughts from Dano.

You are right, I am just in a bad mood right now, getting impatient. Probert didnt deserve that, I tend to not think before I type.

People take everything personnally over here... don't worry. If someone has a little bit of info, you better be Lou Lamoriello himself or else you'll look like a fool (ecklund) in the eyes of HF posters.

HF is the mecca of hockey

Anything's possible. What is fact is that he has not signed with any team yet, no matter what all of these inside sources keep spewing.

My guess is that until there's a trade, there will be no signing. Maybe the league is holding up?

then I'm sure many here would also get Nets season tickets for the next two years that Lebron would be at the Rock. Wouldn't that be something?

Every time I'm sad or whatever, Derek Boogaard makes life better.

Don't be afraid of the Boogey Man, because he makes you smile.

You're right. Probert didn't.


As far as you not thinking before you type? I'm not going to act all high and mighty since I do the same exact thing.
