According to multiple sources, the Islanders are trying to sign Ilya Kovalchuk. This would be a great fit for the Islanders. Kovy has alot of skill up the ice. The LA Kings are also in bid for Ilya. The thing is, the Islanders have the money for him. The Kings are also interested in Gange, while he was asked to wave his no trade clause. But they can't land both Kovy and Gange.

Last night,Garth Snow confirmed that he was in bid for Kovalchuk. According to Darren Dreger, the Isles are ''Willing to bid huge''. On 660 WFAN, they reported that the Isles were closing in on a deal with him.The Islanders are apparently $9M under the cap floor..We'll see if something more breaks out. I personally think the Isles should just grab him...

More to come.
