The Ilya Kovalchuk saga has taken another interesting turn.

Days after a report surfaced that the free agent winger was on the verge of signing a seven-year, $60 million contract with the New Jersey Devils comes a report Wednesday in the Los Angeles Times that quotes Kings general manager Dean Lombardi as saying that his team has "re-engaged" in negotiations.

According to the Times, the Kings received a counter-proposal on Wednesday but it is so complex that the team is not expected to respond for at least a day.

The Kings publically broke off talks with Kovalchuk on Sunday after reportedly making more than one offer without ever receiving a counter offer.
