Kovy Out One Month With Broken Foot




Per Thrash's facebook status. Yes, this is how I get my news.

Edit:

And now this from the AJC. I has a sad.

So, what, fellow Thrashers fans, does this actually do to our team? What does this do to Kovy signing a new deal? What, exactly, does this do to Big Shooter's sanity, which was teetering to begin with?

I'll go ahead and state the obvious: Kovy can't be replaced. We will call someone up, hope Kane can step it up, although that is asking quite a lot from an 18 year old. All of a sudden, our goaltending isn't quite the biggest issue we have, is it?

Let's look on the bright side shall we? Let's say the boys pull together, and WIN some games while our Czar is gone. What better way to show Kovy we really ARE a good team than to win without him?!?!? The team goes on a tear, remains in the playoff picture, and our Czar comes back fully rested and with a new 10 year deal.

One can dream.

Wait, we're taking our news from a mascot bird that cannot talk? And why is our mascot on Facebook? Is he trying to pick up "chicks"?

Big Shooter said...

Speaker - We take our news any way we can get it. I do find it odd that Thrash writes stuff on Facebook, seeing as how he can't talk. I never know how to act in front of him on the computer.

Ah, ha! "Chicks"... good one!!!

Mr. Speaker said...

Esteemed Shooter Grande,

I do hope your "dream" scenario plays out and the team manages to circle the wagons like they did last spring when they took 3 of 4 while Kovy was on the mend including a 5 - 1 beatdown of the Crapitals. I really think Kaner can step it up and fill the void, at least for a little while. Problem is we need to find another line that clicks in terms of scoring or else any line with Kaner and Pevs will be game-planned for...UNGOOD!

We may need to re-unite the Pevs Russian (Kozzy) Army and let Kaner play LW with Antro and Finny (or Little). Third line of Little - Reasy - Whitey??? Hmmm...

...this will be interesting if not painful to watch.

We can score goals. That's not the issue.

We can't stop the other team from scoring goals. That's the issue.

CAN A BROTHER GET SOME MANNY LEGACE IN BLUELAND, PLEASE!?!

Big Shooter said...

Yes, we CAN score goals. But Kovy is a rather large part of that. Without him, I think it does become at least a little of an issue. Until we prove other wise.

AND YES A BROTHER CAN GET SOME MANNY LEGACE!!!! PLEASE???? HEEEEENNNNNNNGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Speaker said...

Paging Dr. Charmin! Dr. Charmin...

Time for Whitey and Kozlov to stop playing like confused old men and get crackin' like the savvy veterans they are!

Dr. Charmin?

It's things like this that almost make me believe in black magic and curses.

Question: who was in the building when Kovy went down that isn't normally in the building?

It's not a rhetorical question. Also, it's not Joe Thornton or Devin Setoguchi.

GoPuckYourself said...

Morty--I hear that. My facebook status: "This had to happen against the Sharks. Dany Heatley, seriously, stay the hell out of my city. Only bad things happen when you're here."

Also, this just means that a certain rumor/buzz guy is gonna have us linked with Frolov (e4) every day from now until Kovy comes back.

Ugh. Today blows.

OK. This is bad but I'll try to take a positive side to this. Our next 12 games include 8 games at home. If we can go 7-5 or 7-4-1 without the Great One, we should be in very good shape. Like Mr. Speaker said above as well as others, we have played well without him before, perhaps it will push the Little White Russian line to WAKE UP and start playing like a 2nd line. Thrashers may want to consider moving Schubert to 4th line to play with Boulton and Thor and then move the Party to line 3....seems like the Young One will be playing with the first line.

Big Shooter said...

So, DW just said 3-5 weeks. Take a look at the schedule... LOTS of games in Nov. 3 weeks is 9 games. 4 weeks is 12 games. 5 weeks is 16 games, or 20% of the season.

I guess we will all get a good idea of what the future could be like if Kovalchuk decides not to resign. I'm going to assume they dress Slater, move Reasoner up to the third line and put Peverley or Kane on the first line with Antropov and Afinogenov. If we can be at least .500 while he's out, then we should be in good shape considering that when he comes back, he'll probably play like a man possessed.

Jay-

You're right, I fully expect that when he returns, Kovy will be playing with glowing red eyes and his head will occasionally spin 360 degrees before he vomits large ammounts of acidic green slime.
