Thoughts on Thursday: Ilya Kovalchuk, Conference Finals, and GM of the Year

1. With Bantering Points being done for the forseeable future, I need some sort of column to keep myself busy every now and then. Granted, a weekly “thoughts” piece isn’t going to bring the hard hitting analysis that I usually intend to write, but it’s something to keep the mind fresh as the dog days of summer approach.

While there’s still nearly another month of hockey left to be played, the time will come when the playoffs are over, the draft has come and gone, and the biggest news in free agency is when marginal NHLer’s get tired of waiting around for a contract in North America and make the trek across the pond.
