from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,
Kovalchuk, who can become a free agent in 2010, is the subject of numerous trade rumors. The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch reported that Waddell has held serious discussions with several teams about trading Kovalchuk.
“I can tell you 100 percent on my grave, whose ever grave you want, I’ve never spoken to one team about trading Ilya Kovalchuk,” Waddell told SportingNews.com.
Seems clear enough, but sometimes hockey executives like to play semantics. So when he says he hasn’t talked to a team, maybe he really means he’s been e-mailing the entire league about Kovalchuk’s availability.
Or text messaging. Or sending assistant GM Larry Simmons out to do the dirty work.
Waddell laughed at those suggestions, but continued to eliminate options just to be clear.
