First lets all take a deep breath and say "FINALLY". We have been waiting on Kovalchuck for 19 days and quite frankly getting a little tired of this saga.
With Kovy finally putting pen to paper in thr Swamp, this has already affected the fantasy hockey world. Had Kovy signed in Los Angelas as had been rumoured many times it could have been a fanatsy bonanza for may Kings players. For starters Kopitar would have had a phenominal season, not to mention the powerplay which would have included a much improved Drew Doughty.
But alas he returned to "trap central" to play in New Jersey. This however does not mean his production will dip. New Jersey is a team that plays it star players, and plays them alot. So when you are investing 100 million dollars he is going to play. Who knows maybe a full season in New Jesey makes him a more responsible player, which in turn would make hiom that much more valuable on draft day as his plus minus would take dramatic rise. In his 21 games he was a solid +9 pro rate that over a season and we are talking in the mid 20's . only once in his NHL career has he been a plus player, so by signing today, as crazy as it may sound considering the way the Devils play, this was actually a good fantasy move
