    Let me get tis straight. You guys are wondering if Kovalchuk would be a fit HERE?

    No ... not that we'd event find out anyway. My guess is that he'll either sign with a contender-ish team or just stay in Russia.

    Copy that. Bringing in someone who wanted out of his U.S. contract and is at the end of his career would be a foolish waste of time and money. Smells a lot like Semin, too.

    Aside from the fact that Kovalchuk is roughly twice the player that Semin ever was ... yup

    Oh ... and there's no way he ever signs with a team that has Don Waddell working for it, either. He HATES that guy from their time in Atlanta

    Semin's 1st year here was a short season (48 games) due to a lockout. He had 44 points in 44 games. Only Staal had more points with 53. But he was only 28 when Canes signed him so he was more in the prime age group than Kovalchuk is now.
