The New Jersey Devils are said to have offered free agent sniper Ilya Kovalchuk a 17-year deal that would pay the crafty Russian over $100 million.

 

The Devils have long been interested in Kovalchuk, but have yet to be able to get him under contract with competition believed to be coming from the Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders and the KHL- who now appear to be out of the running for Kovalchuk’s services.

 

TSN is reporting that Kovalchuk is scheduled to meet with the King’s management team today to have a face-to-face meeting.

 

The Kings, who have been trying desperately to sign Kovalchuk for several weeks now, were thought to be out of the running for Kovalchuk as early as last week when King’s general manager Dean Lombardi stated that while the Kings were trying to get a deal done he would not sign Kovalchuk if it meant sacrificing the future of his young and talented team.

 

It appears as if the Kovalchuk saga is far from over. Stay tuned…with the battle for Kovalchuk about to get heated between the Devils and Kings, it appears as if it’s about to get very interesting!

 

Until next time,

 

Peace!
