I would like to apologize for the delay of posting this. I was denied access to post on my own site which to me is somewhat bizarre in honest opinion. So the Kovalchuk deal looks like this:
ATL 2nd Rounder in 2010 Draft
NJD 1st Round pick in 2010 NHL Draft
NJD 2nd rounder in 2010 NHL Draft
I did write a blog a few days back saying it was unlikely for Kovalchuk to be traded to the Devils, however on this day, February 5th,2010 I am going out on limb and saying ILYA KOVALCHUK WILL NOT RE-SIGN WITH THE NEW JERSEY DEVILS BEFORE JULY 1st.
