Pass on Kovy for me. I'm not fully caught up, so maybe you guys talked about it, but what do you do with the other years on his contract? Not the salary, but just having this guy floating around for multiple years taking up a roster spot? If it was a pure rental, then maybe, just to have that shot as a weapon in the playoffs. But my guess is he'd wear out his welcome really fast. He's never struck me as a "go team!" kind of guy.

No, but I can't figure out what the point of having a thread to discuss things about the Islanders is if the answer to every question is "Lou's got it let's just see what he does".

Guy's doing a great job and I couldn't be happier but I guess I don't have the same old-man-ball-sucking fetish some of you guys do

I think he was underrated defensively when he played in Jersey. He'd fit on the roster for the two remaining years on his contract if we moved Ladd. You'd have Dal Colle (or someone else) getting a full-time roster spot at 3LW and Kovy taking Eberle's place at RW. It wouldn't be difficult and Kovalchuk would be a good bridge until (approximately) Wahlstrom was ready to take an NHL job.

And they're putting space between them and the teams behind them. They're 7 up on the Jackets and Pens.

Agreed. And I'm all for Kovy if they're shipping back significant salary. I'm just saying adding him without moving Ladd's $5.5M cap hit (or Bailey's $5M hit, although I think that's even more unlikely) would be irresponsible. That's it, not saying I wouldn't love to see Kovy teeing up one timers on the PP
- eichiefs9


As far as Kovy I really don’t want him. If then as you say you need to get rid of cap the other way.

Mikko Koskinen expected to start tonight for #LetsGoOilers. No surprises there, as Cam Talbot is expected to go against the #Isles tomorrow. Believe NYI is one of the teams showing some interest in Cam. Strong defensive team that is playoff bound could be a nice fit for him.

So Minnesota is willing to sell. Loads of tasty pieces on that squad, most of which are under term. Brodin, Zucker, Granlund, Coyle, etc.
