from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Alex Kovalev might not be singing the blues about Senators coach Cory Clouston the rest of the season.
While it’s a longshot because of the high risk for any team looking at Kovalev, league sources say there is one team — the banged-up St. Louis Blues — interested in acquiring the disgruntled Senators winger. But the Blues don’t have the cash to make a move right now….
Sources say there is an investor ready to put more money into the Blues. That won’t happen until Jan. 1 for tax purposes, which means the club can’t afford to take on the remainder of Kovalev’s $5-million (all terms US) salary for now.
Depending on Senators’ on-ice fortunes in the next month, Murray will have to decide whether he’s going to be a buyer or seller at the Feb. 28 trade deadline.
If it’s the latter, Kovalev could be moved for a draft pick.
