    Don't look for this board for a lot of logic right--it is a runaway train heading towards a cliff and most poster are saying burn more coal--maybe we can fly

    I'd trade the 10th overall to get rid of these new pop-up ads.

    McDavid was getting paid no matter what but Drai's playoffs for sure tacked an extra million onto his price.

    Chiarelli - Hi is Ilya there? This is Peter Chia-

    Kovalchuk's Wife - *click*

    Kovalchuk (In Russian) - Who was that, honey?

    Kovalchuk's Wife (In Russian) - No one. Wrong number. From some place in Siberia.

    4. Sounds like Edmonton checked in on Ilya Kovalchuk. Not a bad idea, actually. But it won’t happen.

    5. Before deciding on Don Waddell as his general manager, Carolina owner Tom Dundon did a phone interview with the Oilers’ vice-president of player development, Scott Howson...

    Too bad about Kovalchuk. Woulda been dope to see him and Connor Leon and Nuge on the 1PP.
    Also wish Howson had got hired on in some capacity with the Hurricanes.
    Can't catch a break.

    Damn we cant catch a break for sure. Scott Howson leaving would be a good thing. We just need Green and MacTavish to leave next.

    No thanks to Kovalchuk. He is just looking for a payday. He can enjoy his time in NYC where they love big names but have no clue on how to build a championship team.

    Well, Chia must have some kind of plan to clear a bit of cap space if he was inquiring about Kovalchuk. Also it might signal we are in the market for a right handed top 6 winger. Who would fit the bill? Something around Klefbom and Mark Stone perhaps? You know Ottawa would like Klefbom's contract and who knows if they want to pay 6-7 mil per for Stone this summer. RNH/McDavid/Stone would be the best line in the league, or he would fit well with Draisaitl too.

    Dundon seems incompetent. Canes should be scared.

    Kovalchuk would have solved the problem of a right shot on the PP big time.

    Not surprised it isn't going to happen though. Not sure what we have to offer him. The opportunity to play with McDavid likely doesn't have much pull with him. Maybe if we were a piece away from being a cup contender the conversation could have gone differently.

    Dundon/Waddell is a scary combination for Canes fans.

    Offer Klefbom and 10 and Lucic at 25% retained for Hanifin and Aho. They want toughness!

    It's to bad we can't send Howson, Mactavish and Lowe to go work for Calgary.

    The only pull you get with Kovalchuk is $$$ and a lot of kissing his ass. Glad he is not coming.

    With Dubas the new GM in Toronto I wonder if he'd be willing to pay a heavy price to get Nurse, fills a need, fits the age demographic of their core and he was super high on him in the past.

    There's so much smoke I'd be shocked if he's not on our staff next year. I really like adding him and Yawney if it happens, seems like they'll be good fits to balance out MacLellan.

    Meh. I don't really care about a players motivations if they're a good player who will contribute. I think even at 35 Kovalchuk would have been good for 20-25 goals and would have solved our PP one-timer problem. I'm also not going to pretend to know what drives a player. Especially a guy who walked away from $77M guaranteed dollars to go back to Russia and play.

    Considering how quickly Chiarelli has been willing to move on from wingers, I don't think there is anyway they'd trade Nurse for Nylander and have to deal with him earning ~6M.

    For a lot more $,tax free, free luxury vehicle, free place to live. Sorry he’s a complete waste of time. A team is about team. Kovalchuk is all about Kovalchuk.

    I’d be fine for a Nurse for either Nylander/Marner trade (probably a little extra for the latter).

    This is assuming that extension talks in TO aren’t off to a good start and Nurse has been very solid shot contributions wise as well as zone exits/entries.
