Its official, Ilya Kovalchuk has indeed signed.
The highly sought after super sniper unrestricted free agent has teams who can afford him, and some that cant, hanging onto every word his agent Jay Grossman says to them in person, or his twitter account. Fans and reporters even moreso.
No one has been able to get the Russian star to sign for them. Yet, I managed to get him to earlier this season, and it didnt even cost me a penny... and whenever I find a buyer for this item, he'll have even paid ME to sign. I even managed to get the sniper to sign more than once this year. Basically, if I show up where Ilya is, he seems to be a willing signer.
This is why I am offering my services to any GM who really wants Kovalchuk to sign to hire me. I dont know what an Assistant G.M. makes these days, but I will take the minimum. You will be getting someone that has managed to get Ilya Kovalchuk to sign...several times..... and for a lot less than 10 million dollars a year.
With teams like his former squad the New Jersey Devils, along with New York Islanders and Los Angeles Kings being heavily rumoured in the mix, there is a lot of demand for this former 2 time 50 goal scorer & 2004 Rocket Richard trophy winner. One thing its fair to say is... his original team, the Atlanta Thrashers arent even an after thought for their former franchise player. But who knows. With me there, maybe their GM can get him to sign?
General Managers... feel free to contact me. I will listen to reasonable offers.... Unlike the man you are trying to sign.
