    On paper, adding Ilya Kovalchuk to the Los Angeles Kings seemed like a no-brainer.

    Imagine, for a second, that you get some great tickets to a sporting event – hockey or otherwise. You decide to give the other team a clever tongue-lashing, perhaps thanks to a healthy dosage of booze or a long day at the office. It seems like a light hearted good time – after all, isn’t…

    If anything else, last night proved that even in a light night of action that anything can happen.
