Ilya Kovalchuk is one of my favorite NHL players. Given that the Thrashers are also one of my favorite teams outside of the Sharks, and  that I just love small market teams in general, I am happy to announce that Ilya Kovalchuk and the Thrashers are very close to a deal.

 This blog is obviously for those who haven't heard the news yet. So please, don't call me captain obvious or anything like that if you already knew.

 Despite Kovalchuk's broken foot, this deal is projected to be for about 9 years and worth close to 100 million dollars. Quite a hefty contract even for a player of Kovalchuk's talent level. I will be interested to see if this projection really is correct or not.
