Kovalev Does Not Anticipate A Trade Anytime Soon

According to the post gazette in Pittsburgh, PA Alexei Kovalev does not expect to be traded soon. Kovalev stated…

“My feeling is that, for the next month, I don’t think anything is going to happen. Maybe closer to the deadline, it might happen.”

Alexei Kovalev stated that he would like to play in Pittsburgh next season, but that does not look like the case because of financial troubles in the organization. No word was said on possible teams that Kovalev might be traded to, but so far rumors have it that it will be either, Toronto, Philidelphia, Colorado, or Detroit. http://www.post-gazette.com/penguins/20030202kovalev0202p2.asp
