NEW WORLD WITHOUT KOVIE
THE SHOCKING retirement of Ilya Kovalchuk puts a wrench in New Jersey’s plan to re-tool. Production falls to Travis Zajac and Adam Henrique as well as UFA signees Ryane Clowe and Michael Ryder. The other big news is a changing of the guard in goal, where coach Peter DeBoer will find a way to manage Martin Brodeur and Cory Schneider. Watch rookie winger Reid Boucher.
