Hey, Ilya Kovalchuk a great player – right up there with Crosby and Ovechkin.

His cap hit – $6 million in that crazy contract – is equal to Mike Cammalleri and $!,357,143 less than Scott Gomez.

And we’ll get to see Kovalchuk, live and on RDS, four times a season – plus playoffs … maybe.

In non-Kovy news, Blair Mackasey – a familiar face in the scouts’ section of the Bell Centre pressbox – has been named the Minnesota Wild’s director of player personnel. The Wild also extended the contract of Guy Lapointe, who’s their amateur scouting coordinator.

And they’re lovin’ Simon Gagné in Tampa. And the Philly media will miss him.
