Ilya Kovalchuk's selection of the Los Angeles Kings for his next NHL destination was eight years in the making. In 2010, he only had two teams he was considering: The New Jersey Devils, with whom he would sign a ridiculous (and illegal, it turns out) 17-year contract; and the Kings, who courted him heavily.
