Start here today

Been chasing a slew of rumors, but I was just told by a very reliable source that Ilya Kovalchuk may be leaving Russia and signing with an NHL team before Monday's trade deadline which would make him eligible for the post season...

The source contacted me just as news broke in Russia that Kovalchuk will NOT play Games 3 or 4 in his playoff series versus Lokomotiv SKA and has been stripped of his Captaincy.

The two teams Kovalchuk would most likely be signing with are NJ and Toronto from all indications.

On Ladd...

The Hawks are pretty much battling the Panthers for Ladd's services... a deal could be "extremely close" and few people I talk to expect that Ladd will last through tomorrow as a Jet.

We discuss all this and more on the show today...
