Throwback Rumor Day! Kovalchuk Time...Wed's Buzz

November 13, 2019, 10:50 AM ET [76 Comments]
In Hockeybuzz's dozen or so year history there are some names that I have typed way more than others...

To name a few in the RUMOR Hall of Fame: Mats Sundin, Brad Richards, John Tavares, Mike Cammalleri, Steven Stamkos, Tomas Kaberle, Peter Forsberg, Vinny Lecavalier, Erik Karlsson, Dany Heatley, Max Pacioretty, Ryan Kesler, Patrick Marleau....and Dustin Byfuglien so often I can even spell his name.

These are the players who show up in my nightmares...

But one man, ONE SIMPLE RUSSIAN MAN has his own entire floor at the hall...

Ilya Kovalchuk.

Yes, I have been writing about Kovalchuk rumors since we all tied onions to our belts (it was the style at the time.)

So when the news came out last night that LA was scratching him for the foreseeable future I fell back to sleep...hoping it was all just a dream.

But it isn't.

Kovalchuk Rumors are coming out of retirement my buzzards...

The big questions:

1. How many teams might be willing to take him if LA retains half the salary?
2. Does Kovalchuk offer any value and revive his game in a winning situation...like say Boston or Washington?
3. Would you give him a shot on your team?

Back with more later today.
