Cornwall ON – The US may be in a Depression but Ilya Kovalchuk is counting his Benjamins as the 27 year old resigned with New Jersey in what may be one of the most lucrative contracts in NHL history.
“He signed here for a reason — to try to win a championship. This organization has a good history of that, so you know he wants to be part of the team. That’s what I’m excited about.”
— Devils’ head coach John MacLean
What do you think Hockey Fans? Good deal? Bad deal? You can post your comment below.
And of course now that Kovy is signed the dominoes should start to tumble. Expect to see some big ticket contracts being moved. Names like Lecavlier, Spezza, Gagne, and just about anyone making over $5M may be in play!
