If Kovalchuk is available July 1st, Lombardi would be a huge idiot if he doesn't make a huge offer. Superstars don't usually become available at 27 for nothing but cash. He's still 3+ years away from 30. If the Kings end up in cap trouble, I'm sure there would be plenty of teams interested in a trade for Kovalchuk.

The Kings have plenty of cap space available to re-sign their youth. The key to a strong team in the cap era is to draft well. As long as Lombardi continues to find some decent players in the 2nd-4th rounds, the Kings will be fine.
