Players can price themselves out of the NHL. If you can’t sign them, how do you trade them to a team that may be struggling with adding a $6-7 million player for several years? I can see how a superstar like Kovalchuk could be on the outside looking in when all is said and done.
I’m not a Thrashers fan, but I really want to see this guy where he belongs for the good of the NHL.
I did know Don Waddell when we were growing up on the west side of Detroit. I played hockey with his brothers Jim and Larry pretty regularly. I think I played with Don once in a pickup game in Amherstberg, ON when we were teenagers. That was a very long time ago. He’s a great guy. I wish him well, but I’ll always be a Red Wing fan.]]>
