Another my uncle told me, my cousin told me, my close freind that works for the habs told me post. . Im not pointing fingers our insulting anyone but please dont make stuf up just cause youre bord or dont have nothing to do. Im getting really tired of these type of post. I have a suggestion for people urond here. Let's just not reply to these type of post anynore and maybe were not going to see them for a wile. Next time you want to write something like this our a post similar to this one, instead of writting my uncle our whatever else just say that you have a felling that kovalev well sign with the pens in the next few days. Youl see people wont be as tick off at you. Is just a peace of advice.
If the Pens sign Kovalev to a "hefty" contract that means that the Habs will get a fairly high compensation pick. Maybe even as high as the #51 overall they traded for Kovalev. That is about the best that they can hope for. Kovalev isn't even worth the money Gainey offered.
Now if they could find a way to get Balej back......
Please... One guy claiming his uncle heard it and another supposedly hearing the same thing (I'm not buying it) and it's news? No. Not until I read or hear something from the Pitt. or free agent board. Some kind of announcement would be on tsn if the news was broken on some radio station up in Canada. What kind of signing is leaked through radio first especially considering no Pittsburgh rumours back up this fact?
Hefty deal sounds really misleading too. It can't be a contract from the Pens if it's "hefty" in terms of money. Unless they somehow found 20 million to spend on him for 4 years. Hefty doesn't refer to length of contract in my lexicon. Our deal is the better one, but who can say what Kovy does. Geez, what kind of signing is announced on local radio hours before anyone else picks up on it?
