#1 Kovy will not come to NYR. This is something that has wasted WAY TOO much space on this blog and many others. I would give NYR a 1% chance, the Kings 50% NJD 30% and the KHL 18%.( i will leave 1% split among Isles/ Avs etc.) Enough time has been wasted with people trying to figure out a way to fit this guy in.........We were never really in the running.
#2 As much as I hate this guy (and most of you as well) Redden's smiling face will be a part of this years rangers team. I have said it before and I say it again. No longer do we have the luxury of burying Sather's mistakes under the Cablevision profits. Nyr's have to take the hit, and Sather would have to admit another FAIL.......I can't see both happening. NYR will not take this hit to start this year.......I will bet ANYTHING!!!!!!!
#3 Staal is a 80/20 on being traded. Talks have all but died. He will more than likely be traded, Possible an offer sheet candidate, But I see us trading him.
