UNDATED (AP) Ilya Kovalchuk (KOH’-vuhl-chuhk) is already talking to the New Jersey Devils about a new contract. The Russian star became an unrestricted free agent Monday when an arbitrator ruled that the NHL acted correctly in voiding a landmark $102 million contract that Kovalchuk and the Devils agreed to on July 19. The NHL had rejected the 17-year contract, saying the longest deal in league history violated its salary cap.

On a national tour to promote his new book on mentoring, Dungy told The Associated Press on Monday that Vick still has a lot to learn about his image. Dungy says even if Vick isn’t doing something illegal, he still can make better decisions to stay out of harm’s way.
