NHL 142 800 Top NHL stories of 2010 23199024 The Kovalchuk saga The+Kovalchuk+saga NHL

First, Ilya Kovalchuk was traded to the New Jersey Devils after spending his first eight NHL seasons with the Atlanta Thrashers. Then, after the season, Kovalchuk became the NHL's top free agent in the summer. After flirting with the L.A. Kings, Kovalchuk re-upped with the Devils. But his orignial 17-year, $102 million deal was deemed too over-the-top by the league, since it was designed to circumvent the salary cap. But it accepted the Devils' second attempt, a 15-year, $100 million contract. But Kovalchuk spent the rest of 2010 disappointing Devils fans with his lackluster play.

The Los Angeles Kings ended a six-season playoff drought after entering the year with low expectations, only to fall in the first round to a loaded Vancouver Canucks team. Led by a young nucleus including forwards Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Norris Trophy finalist defenseman Drew Doughty, the Kings continued to be a success in the early part of the 2010-11 season, picking up where they left off the previous season.
