    Id love to see him in Philly. We have the space and he won't be looking for much in term.

    Sure, you can have Chityl, whoever that is.

    As for Filip Chytil, he's not going anywhere.

    Kovy could be an interesting JVR replacement on a short term contract.

    If he put up comparable numbers in comparable ice deployment he would be able to sign a big contract bump, similar to Radulov.

    Having Matthews, Nylander, Marner or Kadri on the ice with him at all times could be inviting.

    If he were thinking like that, I think having Seguin, Benn, Radulov, Klingberg, Heiskanen (maybe bounce back Spezza) would be more inviting to play with. Most of them have at least scored 70p in a season

    Benn - Seguin - Nichuskin
    Kovalchuk - Faksa - Radulov
    Spezza
    Hanzal (for 40ish games)

    Would be fun to watch that's for sure

    Spread the wealth.


    Rangers wish to spread wealth with a soft cap with a luxury tax for going over but the league wants to keep a hard cap. Is that what you meant??

    Who knows... he was coasting the last 5 yrs in the KHL. He was getting injections during the 2012 cup run for a bad back. He'll be getting checked for the first time in half a decade I'm not sure anyone knows how he's gonna be.

    Again, whoever offers him the sweetest deal will land him. That's all it comes down to with this guy.

    Almost no chance he goes to the west, unless it's LA.

    Almost guaranteed to sign on east coast.

    Toronto should pursue him aggressively.

    Bruins cap situation means they have a lot of money this year and then McAvoy, Carlo, Donato, and more need new contracts. A one year deal to play with Marchand and Bergeron to boost his value for a multiyear deal?

    I'd glady welcome Kovy to LA; though he doesn't strike me as the kinda guy to take a pay-cut.

    Maybe Voynov can help convince him.

    I dont think he's going to sign with a Canadian Team.

    I think its either a NY area team or a Cali team
