Kovalchuk Watch: Absurdity Edition

New, 21 comments

After the news two days ago that Ilya Kovalchuk will no longer be a Thrasher, there has been an almost constant drip of updates about the potential trade. While the folks here at BWA typically don't run rumors, some of them are just too good to pass up.

We have credible reports that Ilya Kovalchuk did, in fact, eat breakfast this morning. Details of the breakfast are scarce, but it's safe to assume that it probably included eggs. Less certain: did it include pancakes, waffles, or a bagel? Or perhaps french toast? And, if it did include french toast, does that reveal Kovalchuk's plans to sign a contract with the Montreal Canadiens this summer?

Also in question is the beverage of choice. Was caffeine involved? In the form of coffee or tea? Or did Kovalchuk stick with a simple juice for his breakfast? It is also possible that he drank some sort of smoothie or protein shake, which could call into question the other reports of a solid breakfast.

The fact is, we just don't know. And maybe we should all calm down a little bit.

Updates when we have them...
