and had this to say about the Isles:
On reports of an offer from the Islanders: "They inquired. They called, we had
some discussions. They had to get to the floor, obviously. We had a number of
calls of that type of nature, with teams that would have been interested if we
were interested in a specific kind of contract. Our objection going in was to
put Kovy in one place for the remainder of his career."
