Well then let me just state emphatically, for the record, that i am definitely/maybe in favor/against any trade that would bring us/send away Kovalchuk/Staal. I think that such a trade would definitely/maybe improve/damage the team in a meaningful/superficial way.

i would love to see Kovy here - i think its going to take Crosby saying he wants a better wingman to get a deal done

i dont think we will ever here it from him directly but you have to think after 4 seasons hes had enough of the 2nd rate wingers he has been put with

That's clearly why Armstrong is the key to this proposed/mythical deal.

Question: if Kovalchuk played with Sid would he still POINT at him after every goal he scored?

yeah, it was posted a page or two back but people keep acting like there was truth to it.

while I wouldnt mind seeing chuk play for the pens, i think it is too early to give up on stall and letang. we'll see what happens at the trade deadline. wasnt the trade deadline moved back a day this year?

I like Metzer but I like the thought of Kovalchuk playing on Sid's wing more than Metzer.

Sorry Brian :twisted:

No doubt in my mind that 70 goals from Ilya would not be out of the question, especially on a PP unit featuring Sid, Malkin, Ilya, Gonchar (when healthy), Gogo or Whitney (when healthy). It just irritates me when people come on here and claim a reliable source said such and such and its not true at all.



Stuff happens. Info gets jumbled together but that doesn't mean we still can't talk about it. Anyways it shouldn't irritate you it's just a rumor.

I'll remain on this Iyla to Pitt bandwagon until he goes elsewhere because with him being on Atlanta there is always a chance he gets traded here. Today, tommorrow, or months from now. I wouldn't be surprised if it did happen and I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't.

But to actually state that a reliable source mentioned there are ongoing talks, when this is not true, that's what irritates me. I love rumors as much as the next person, but only rumors coming from reliable sources, not LGP bloggers.


lol don't let it irritate you then and if does you're not forced to read it.

agreed. Whats the difference between speculation and rumors if they are stated as so. It was said in the first post that they were just throwing out names.

hyde wrote:The fact is that Feaster never said anything about Pittsburgh and Atlanta having ANY talks. Don't get me wrong, I'd love for Ilya to be a Pen and I don't mind speculating about trade possibilities to improve the team. What is irritating is to say that Feaster said such and such when its completely false and he never said that. If you want to say trading for Kovalchuk would make a lot of sense and discuss that, that is fine. But when you title the thread NHL Live Rumor, it would make sense if this was actually discussed on NHL Live and not in your dream world. I don't think any of you understand the difference between a credible rumor and fan speculation.



Most people are discussing if this would happen and if it would who would be involved in the trade. I can't speak for everybody else but I'm not saying "Well thanks to NHL Live we can discuss this trade because this is what they said." Heck, it was brought up in the npr forum even before this thread and people here were discussing it.

It sounds like you're just an angry person then, because that shouldn't bother anyone.

My only issue is with the person who started the thread and credited his info to Jay Feaster on NHL Live, which is completely false.



Maybe they made a mistake? and it doesn't even matter like Idoit said we are still discussing it. It's not gonna increase the chances of this deal happening nor will it decrease the chances. If you don't like that a mistake was made or that we're still discussing it then I dunno what to say.
