It ain't just Ek. Every hockey reporter believes that Kovi's destination is LA, and he will sign here. The question is, can Lombardi do it without it messing things up when the core guys are up for raises. I get the feeling that Lieweke is really behind getting him to sign here.
This from espn.com:
Sources confirmed to ESPN.com yet again Saturday that the Kings will make an offer to the prized jewel of a thin market, star winger Ilya Kovalchuk. They tried to acquire his rights this weekend from New Jersey, but were denied since the Devils remain interested in trying to re-sign the Russian star.
