Ilya Kovalchuk in Montreal?  Canadiens, Maple Leafs Express Interest in Sniper

According to the Sport Express Daily, Montreal and Toronto GMs have shown interest in acquiring Atlanta Thrasher Ilya Kovalchuk.

Apparently, negotiations took place during the recent meeting of the NHL general managers.

Recently, Kovalchuk has declared that he did not want to play in Atlanta, and wanted to play with a winning team. These are a few statements he told the Russian press.

"Atlanta lack stability to win often. One match we play well, another only start well. And we must play on the same high level for all 60 minutes and use the chances."

"Hockey is not an individual kind of sport, a leader cannot do everything. If we want to decide serious problems, we need 22 leaders on the ice."

None of the concerned clubs have yet to acknowledge or deny this fact. Until further answers, this remains as another of many rumors.
