  • The latest on Kovalev, is a deal is not dead The Ryan Malone for Kovy could jump start again. The Penguins, Washington and a unknown third team are all interested. Both teams are taking a wait and see approach. If the Habs trade for or sign a big name player, look fo Kovy to be back on the block. The Caps appear to the front runners to land Kovy and seem willing to offer more assets than the Penguins do at the moment.
