Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Thoughts on Ilya Kovalchuk? I just don't like that guy, he seems fucking lazy.

He's a decent player. Very highly skilled guy, but probably overpaid. Not sure he earned the contract that he has.

But a guy that is -110 for his career is probably dogging it on defense sometimes. I don't care how bad his team was at times. It wasn't as bad as most people make it to be.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Yeah, I've always thought Kovalchuk is very talented offensively, but doesn't really play on the defense side, and seems disinterested at times, especially when he gets frustrated.

Only got to see a little of the game last night, but man is that series going to be a very close one, and how about the Coyotes and their overtime games, been nuts. They have played what 7 games now, and 6 of them have went to OT? Pretty incredible actually.


GREAT SEASON BOYS, CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR.

I wouldn't mind Malone. Big bodied veteran that scores garbage goals. Perfect complimentary player for our top 6. Another option is Teddy Purcell. A playmaking winger for Kesler and Booth would be awesome.

I can also see Luongo being traded for picks just so we can free up cap space and go after a big name in free agency.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

I really can't see anyone taking on Luongo unless they can free up a bad contract in the process. ie. Malone.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

You'll be surprised to see what kind of value an elite top 5 goalie has around the league. Long contract or not. It's the cap hit that matters.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

The problem is, Vancouver isn't going to pay Luongo and Schneider long term. One of them has to go and the league knows that. If Vancouver is trading him they are going to want to get rid of him far more than anyone else is going to want him.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Just because the league knows about the team's situation it doesn't mean that the Canucks can't get a decent return.

There have been numerous instances over the years where a player has demanded a trade and the team still got good value for the player.

Eric Lindros, Dany Heatley, and soon to be Rick Nash are a few examples.

If push comes to shove and Gillis can't find good value for either goalie he will gladly keep them for one more year and go all in next year for a final run at the Cup.
