Kovy's comments: No Big Deal

Duff - this would be a classic topic for one of our debates, but I'm off to Montreal this morning for work (not retirement), leaving me little time for a fun back-and-forth. But don't worry, I won't long for the city after I leave.

That said, I'll keep my comments about this recent news short and sweet - don't worry about it.

And now I'll elaborate a bit.

While this comment couldn't have come at a worse time, it doesn't mean that Kovy hates Ottawa, or Beavertails. Ok, ok, nobody used the 'h' word, but it also doesn't mean he doesn't want to be here. I don't blame him for having a soft spot in Montreal. And, hey, the fact that he embraces such a market - where his white socks with dress shoes could make for front page news (quelle horreur!) - is good! Dany Heatley doesn't want to be in a hockey market like Ottawa or Edmonton, fine. Kovy spent a few years in Montreal and signed his name to a contract with Senator letterhead, great! Bring it on!

I love when guys leave a city (especially under trade circumstances) and talks about how much they loved being there, the fans, the team, the management, the merchandise outlets, etc. Some guys say it politically, some guys say it cause they mean it. Good on the latter. In Kovy's case, how do you not express your admiration to a city when you're back in that city, who had 8,000 strong sign a petition to keep you in that city, and when you're at a charity golf tournament?! Kovy loved it, good on him and good for letting the fans of MTL know. Did he have to be so open about it? Probably not. But we all know he's a little bit of a weird bird.

So let's all agree that Kovy went a bit too far, but what you should agree with is that this is no big shakes. This won't take away anything from what he can contribute in Ottawa. When he's inconsistent or takes a game off here and there, don't accuse him of daydreaming of afternoons at Simons - it's gonna happen regardless. But the offensive talent he provides will make up for it.

The problem will be if the media blows this out of proportion. Hopefully they don't, but I also hope I hit my growth spurt...not gonna happen! So let’s all stop talking about it, follow the, er, following steps and we'll all be fine:

1. Say out loud, "Kovy had a great time in Montreal, and the weirdo won't shut up about it, but he's a Senator now and he'll be great for our offense"
2. Go back to blaming Heatley for everything and speculating on wild rumours like how I heard he'll be traded to the KHL
3. Petitition for Dave Archibald Mullet and Motorcycle night at SBP!

Thoughts ofArchibald and his mullet sitting on a Harley on the cover of Bodycheck magazine has soothed my anger. Thanks for talking me in off the ledge.

Seriously, I think the hatred toward Heatley in the media is so huge that Kovalev would have to burn down the arena to eclipse him in media coverage, so this one should pass.

The Mighty Big Bag clearly was the most popular at $12 --
greater than 2500 bags were sold. The unit then sorts from the
deliveries and transfer items on where they have to be.
What makes this type of bag I'm currently talking about stand out in the 10,000 other bags in Paris, is this is a prototype backpack.

In addition, some fabric coolers include multiple or outside
zipper pockets and mesh sleeves to carry utensils,
napkins, and any other small accessory items.

The river Pamba, which flows near the foothills with the shrine, and in which devotees require a customary bath before climbing uphill on the
temple, is also within the care of the Kerala State Biodiversity Board.
