Oops. I came up with all this Ilya material for nothing.
Looks like there'll have to be more negotiating between Kovalchuk and the Devils in order to come to an agreement before the season starts, which by the way can't happen soon enough. What's there to do on rainy days? My main pastime, coming up with jokes about current events in hockey, isn't passing very much time due to lack of material. Maybe I should do some research, find out more about the Habs of yore, and make some jokes.
