Devils Get Kovalchuk

Reports are running rampant that Kovalchuk will be in the Atlantic Division, but on the Flyers. The Devils and Thrashers have not announced details, but sources say that it is a done deal. Don’t have to worry about signing him now, but he will be a threat the rest of the season and we see the Devils for two games next week. It certainly makes things interesting.

The Ilya Kovalchuk Sweepstakes

Jeff Carter would be gone. That’s one of the only scenario that I could see happening. He is the only top forward on our team that holds interest from other NHL clubs that does not have a no-trade clause. Would you be willing to part with his goal scoring ability and defensive play? I’m not, and I don’t see Holmgren willing to either. However, since the Flyers are one of the teams heavily invested in talks with the Thrashers, this debate becomes a news story.

Even if we could get someone to waive their no-trade clause (Gagne or Briere) they would not be interested in moving to Atlanta, that’s for sure. Leave a Cup contending team with a loyal fan base to a building franchise like Atlanta? Gagne has been here his whole career, and shows no sign or want to leave Philly. Briere is getting paid out the ass right now and has yet to have as good of a season as his first one with the Flyers during their ECF run in the 07-08 season. Of course, he has been plagued with injuries but that doesn’t change the fact that he has not been producing as much as he did in Buffalo or when he first came here. Obviously, Richards will not be traded and would not be needed to waive his NTC as he is the face and captain of our franchise for the next decade. What are our other options?

Thrashers Come to Town Tonight


Ilya Kovalchuk and those 11th place (not by much) Atlanta Thrashers will be at the Wach tonight. Most of the news surrounding this team lately deals with the trade talk and where Kovalchuk might go considering he’s on the last year of his contract. The Flyers are one of the teams approached by Atlanta’s management about the trade, but it is highly unlikely due to our lack of prospects and players that we would be able/willing to give up.
