    Not what happened. We went thru this at the time, and many folks didn't understand what was going on.

    Liewieke desperately wanted Kovalchuk and Lombardi most definitely did not. Lombardi was instructed to pursue him, used the experience to his benefit and ultimately put Kovalchuk off of the idea.

    He was never going to play under Dean Lombardi.

    Ding! Ding! Ding! We Have a WINNER!

    Lombardi knew the ultimate insult to a Russian is to put your feet up on the desk and that's EXACTLY What Lombardi did.

    I'll vomit if Kovy signs here for anything more than a 1 year deal.
