Pierre Labrun reporting that Kovy's going to New Jersey. Didn't see that one coming, if it's true. Given the way that Brodeur seems to have the Pens number this year, probably bad news if the Devils and Pens meet in the playoffs. Of course, that depends on who NJ gives up in the trade, and how that might affect team chemistry. After all, trading for a superstar player late in the season is no guarantee of ultimate success in the Stanley Cup chase, as you guys found out a couple of years ago.
Still, given the Pens struggle against New Jersey this year so far, this has to be a bit worrisome to the Pittsburgh faithful.
