NHL Rejects Kovalchuk Contract

NEWARK, NJ - JULY 20: Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils poses for photographs following the media opportunity announcing his contract renewal at the Prudential Center on July 20, 2010 in Newark, New Jersey. (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)

Word now is that Kovalchuk’s amazing $102 million dollar contract has been rejected by the NHL. No word yet on what the reasoning is, but most likely it’s based on the fact that the contract is a freaking joke. Anyway, I think it’s hilarious. Anyone think there’s a chance the Kings get back into it? Do we want him in LA now? Or is he stuck with NJ for a shorter (more reasonable) deal or KHL for the money?
