Big Devils fan here. Also Ilya Kovalchuk fan. Sometimes he can do amazing dekes and score goals. Sometimes he can backcheck and make the right defensive plays. A lot of times he does not, but that is his style of playing. Hopefully when the game is on the line, he will make the right plays... anyways I have a question for Jets fans....
Why do you guys boo Ilya Kovalchuk?
If it was not for him, there would not be a team in Winnipeg.
Think about it, if he resigned with Atlanta, then there would still be a team in Atlanta.
In fact, you guys should cheer for him, because since NJ traded for him, Atlanta lost it's team. Winnipeg won the bid and got their team back. Also because of Ilya Kovalchuk, Winnipeg got a sometimes solid sometimes cupcake defencemen Johnny Oduya. But he is a pretty decent D and probably plays well with Dustin Byfuglien. Also Atlanta used the first rounder from the Kovalchuk trade to make a trade with the Blackhawks to get Byfuglien.
