I just saw this from Spector's website and I am NOT surprise. If this is true (and he is 95% right) it's time to start looking at other available players. I somehow knew this was going to happen. All Kovalchuk showed to us and NHL fans is that he's ALL about the money. He could care less if he goes to a Stanley Cup contender. I would be shock if he DOESN'T sign with the Islanders since they are the only ones who offered him the most money.
Update: now L.A. Kings Insider, Rich Hammon is reporting an update on the Kovalchuk situation saying a good team source is speculating what the L.A. Time's Helene Elliott reported this evening as a sign that the Kings should move on.
