Ilya Kovalchuk redeems himself

You guys remember how good it seemed Illy Kovalchuk was going to be when he broke in with the Trashers? He was on the cusp of being one of the faces of the NHL. Remember the Nike commercial with Markus Naslund and him?
He then seemed to fade, with his contract status and a bad team the prime suspects for the drop-off in performance. Last summer the mammoth contract with the Devils almost turned him into a punchline.
What a difference a strong playoff run makes. He’s finally arrived at where we always thought he would get to.
