Islanders make power play for Devils' Ilya Kovalchuk with huge offer

Devils left winger Ilya Kovalchuk could be on the move, but not to a place anyone originally expected.

Reports coming out of NHL.com, The Los Angeles Times and Newsday say that the New York Islanders have come to the table with a compelling offer for the 27-year-old and former No.1 overall draft pick.

Islanders GM Garth Snow confirmed this report, saying that he got a hold of Kovalchuk’s representatives.

The deal is reported to be in the neighborhood of 10-years, $100 million. The Isles are now in a three-way logjam with the Devils and the Los Angeles kings, who are all vying for the stud goal-scorer.
