So now NJ is up for sale too…wonder if that includes the Prude?
It does make one wonder on a few contract situations, namely Kovalchuk and Parise. Would an owner looking for buyers be ready to commit more money to a player (Parise)? Or, would he maybe be looking to unload some money (Kovalchuk)?
I’ve made it pretty clear that I believe Ottawa needs to finally step up and replace Heatley, once and for all, and Kovalchuk would do that, hands down, in fact, I’d wager he’s a far more well-rounded player.
I’m so serious about this, If I were the M.A.C., I’d be ready to offer up something pretty sweet, like say;
2011 1st + Kovalev + Gryba for Kovalchuk + 2011 2nd.
Now, this is just spitballing, as Kovalchuk has a RMC, and would likely not come to Ottawa, I’m just trying to show how much I support making a bold move to land a legitimate top line scoring winger.
