    Ilya Kovalchuk retires at age 30.

    HHOF or no?

    http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=56745

    First overall draft pick, Rocket Richard Trophy winner, 816 points in 816 NHL games, 1 Stanley Cup Final appearance. 100 games in Russia/KHL and 96 points.

    2 NHL lock outs/strikes hurt his overall stats or he probably would be a 1000 games/points player. Retires near his prime.

    No way HHOF.

    He signed a 4 year deal in the KHL today.
