The Kings, Bruins, Rangers, Flyers and Blackhawks are reportedly interested, but all the stories we’re seeing now do not include the Flyers and Blackhawks.

Teams in mix for Kovalchuk include: Boston, New Jersey, Rangers, Philadelphia, Calgary, Chicago and L.A. Some more. Some less. Auction time.

Kovy very much in play, but I’m being told that the Blackhawks aren’t in the mix right now.

Thrashers’ want list hasn’t changed for Kovalchuk deal: they need players who can help now. There are interested teams we don’t know about
added 4:53pm, Another Tweet from McKenzie,
About a half dozen teams still in the mix for Kovalchuk. Likely to take at least another two or three days to sort itself out. No deadline.
