Evening Line- Rob Blake On Ilya Kovalchuk

I’m going to sit with Kovy in the next few weeks. So, basically the process is I want to get what he wants out of this and what I want out of it. It’s different than what we talked about last summer, no doubt about that. I need buy-in from Kovy though, structural-wise, for sure. And I think a lot of that will be around the new staff and the communication with them, and exactly what the role is going to be, and we’ll go forward from there. But did it end well? No, not at all. There’s a process to get keep that going in the right direction.

-Rob Blake, GM of the LA Kings.  Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider has much more on this topic.

Kovy is a good guy and a great player, but he’s never been someone that quickly grasps the way he’s needed to play.
