Afternoon Line

“It’s still something that doesn’t make sense. The trade at the deadline didn’t make sense, the Devils’ signing him didn’t make sense. If you want to talk about team first and everybody plays for the team, why do you sign [a] player who’s not exactly known for that?

“If I want to make my team to the next level, that’s not the player I’m going to go after.”

-Bobby Holik on Ilya Kovalchuk.  Via Elliotte Friedman of CBC where you can read more and his 30 Thoughts too.

I love how Holik tells it as it is… It really does not makes sense what all the Devils gave up for this guy, and the bleeding is far from over.  The devils are still in need of cap room in the near future.
