Hendricks and Avs Miles Apart and a bit of Kovy too.



According to Dater, Matt Hendricks is moving on - a source close to the player says that the Avs and Hendricks have a huge gap in expectations/money and the Avs are most likely not going to re-sign him.

In other news, Peter Mueller has apparently made a full recovery from his season-ending concussion courtesy of Sir Robert of Blake (ret'd).

Which is really good news as I was quite worried about the poor chap. I loved what he did in his 15 game stint with the Avs and he made the PP 68.5%* better than it was.

Ilya Kovulchuk has spurned the LA Kings and apparently has an offer from NY Islanders for a $100 million, ten year deal.

For Roy's sake! I would like Kovy's goals as much as the next man (as long as BiB is that next man) but is he really saying that he is worth more than that?

The more I hear about this, the less I want him. Atlanta and NYI have offered him similar deals and he is thinking about it?

Here's my issue: Russians around the league (Ovechkin excepted) are already treated with suspicion about their mercenary ways, with holdouts (Filitov) and go-homes blotting their copybooks. It has already caused players to drop in the draft because of it. (Kiril somebody). It will get to a point where teams won't bother drafting Russian players because they know that if a KHL team offers them $5.00 more, they will desert.

I don't want Kovy in an Avs unipron, because he is a greedy, mercenary bastard who would likely sell his own mother. The Avs have not always signed the classiest of players (Brad May, Darcy Tucker, Claude Lemieux) but they have kept their ratio pretty high.

New York should tell Kovy to go fuck himself and let his price deteriorate. If he doesn't like it, he can play in the KHL. He seemed very ordinary with the Devils and there is no guarantee that he wouldn't be the same with another team.
