No, not Hudler...I'm talking of course, about Tomas Kopecky. The over-rated, "I want more minutes!", now Blackhawk apparently has already fallen out of favor with Chicago - what fickle creatures they are.

NHLPA officially files grievance against NHL for rejecting Kovalchuk contract - Guess what this post is about. King of the self-explanatory titles, George Malik of Snapshots goes over the latest in the Kovalchuk signing. We waited this long and they can't even give him a legal contract? Ridiculous.
