Seriously? The Ilya Kovalchuk saga was supposed to be over.
Now it just gets weirder and weirder.
It's quite unfortunately really: With the official signing of Kovalchuk, it was expected that the moratorium on a lot of NHL movement was going to be lifted. People thought that it was Kovalchuk holding things back.
So what does it mean now? With Kovalchuk potentially heading back to free agency, do the teams wait another 20 days? Or do they just start making moves and Kovalchuk becomes an unfortunate bystander?
Not only that, but a bystander who may have to settle for a LEGAL contract with a $6-million cap hit.
