Report- Blues Interested In Kovalev

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.
