I wouldn't be surprised to see him click there. It's a Russian type of town.

I just assumed he would go to a team with at least 1 Russian but I don't think MTL has any ?!?! I would have bet $5 he would have signed with PIT, WSH or TBL

Would look good with Drouin, imo. I remember Ilya almost single handedly leading NJ to a Stanley Cup, hes not the same player but still valuable if used correctly.

No risk move.  Montreal is currently missing Gallagher, Drouin, Armia, Byron.  They needed some help.  They even had to call up Weise.  If he doesn’t work out it’s fine. It’s one season and minimal cap space

I thought he was holding out for a contender, not Montreal.

With all Montreal’s. Injuries he’ll get a chance to play top 6 minutes.  Gives him an opportunity to prove he’s still an nhl’er

He really wants to prove himself.  He seemed totally cooked in LA.  Why not just go back home to Moscow?

I don’t know.  Feel free to ask him. Maybe he wants one last kick at the can in the best league in the world

Perhaps they will bring back Markov as well.

Wow, that's a BIG drop in pay. Shows how badly Los Angeles overpaid to sign an over aged player.

If Montreal can manage to light a fire under Kovalchuk's butt then I guess it is a good move. Not much at stake at least.

More proof that Bergevin is a desperate idiot.

??? League minimum for one of the top goal scorers of the last two decades. He is on pace for 43 points on "a team like that".

It's like volunteering to get cancer. Kovalchuk is walking, talking, skating hot garbage both on, and off the ice. Especially off.
