Devils Surprise Everyone in Kovalchuk Trade
>There were a lot of rumors flying around regarding where Ilya Kovalchuk
would land before the trade deadline, but few of them involved the New Jersey Devils.
It was only yesterday when the Devils first popped up as a possible destination and, even then, it seemed unlikely Kovalchuk would be a fit under Jacques Lemaire's defense-or-death system. One had to wonder why GM Lou Lamoriello would make such a move.
