Kovalchuk to WASH

May 27th, 2009 by Hog | Filed under Atlanta, Incorrect Rumors.

A source today has told me that the Caps losing Kozlov and Fedorov opens up a “serious” possibility. I asked who the Caps were interested in and he threw some pretty big names out there, one of whom would be via trade, one is a pending UFA that is still playing.

The player via trade was Ilya Kovalchuk. It is intriguing to consider an Ovechkin/Kovalchuk duo going up against the Crosby/Malkin combo for the next several years [source]
