The New York Post says Penguin Alexei Kovalev is coming to New Jersey.
It’s a great deal for New Jersey. Not so great for Pittsburgh. I don’t see how Pittsburgh will ever be any kind of competitive team if they can’t afford to keep any good players. It’s almost a waste of time for them to even exist. Let’s be honest: Mario Lemieux can’t play forever. He’s only got, at most, another 20 or 30 years in him.
I keep hearing that it’s a big race between the Sabres and the Penguins to move their franchises to Portland, Oregon (it looks like Buffalo is winning Mark Hamister and Todd Berman are having trouble coming to terms with their bid for the Sabres If they can’t cut a deal, the Sabres have to move).
