    Right. And what are the odds he would bail on TWO teams? He has already pre-jilted. It's out of his system.

    Also, the average number of teams that hockey players bail on is way below 1. I think we're safe ; }

    So the reports that he was looking for Marleau type deal were correct. This is pretty much the exact same contract as what Marleau got.

    Sort of like how Garp bought the house right after the plane crashed into it, right?

    assuming this doesn't mean a trade of a Toffoli or something, but barring that, this solifies the top 9

    either
    Iafallo - Kopitar - Brown
    Pearson - Carter - Toffolo
    Kovalchuk- Kempe - Lewis

    or
    Kovalchuk - Kopitar - Brown
    Pearson - Carter - Toffoli
    Iafallo - Kempe - Lewis

    or something to that nature

    Got our man, 5 years later hahaha

    Default Kings sign Ilya Kovalchuk

    More than I hoped, but worth it if he can be a top line winger + pp qb
