As I type this right now… the internet is exploding with rumors of prized free agent Ilya Kovalchuk being traded to any number of teams. Since the Los Angeles Kings are included in this madness (for the record, Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy and I are in the “no trade without a new contract” camp)… I started thinking of what it would be like to have Kopi and Kovy on the same team. I think it would go something like this.



I don’t think I was ever going to type these words in my lifetime… but it looks like we should know in the next few hours if 5 time 40+ goal scorer Ilya Kovalchuk has been traded to the Kings. Gulp!
