I have checked, and there is no concrete update on the Kings’ pursuit of Ilya Kovalchuk. The process is ongoing, as it is with several other teams, it seems. If you’d like innuendo and speculation, there are plenty of places to go. If I get any updates of substance, I’ll post them. If not, I won’t. The process is likely to take several days and involve a lot of teams. I have no updates on whether Atlanta’s asking price has dropped.
