From The LA Times

It can’t be a coincidence that the final number was $102 million. That makes it more–by $1 million–than the offer Kovalchuk turned down from Atlanta before the Thrashers traded him to New Jersey in February. He wanted Alexander Ovechkin-like numbers and no one thought he’d get $100 million in this league and with this economic climate. He not only got his numbers, he got more than the most lucrative previous offer.

Here’s the contract structure, as first reported by Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and later verified by capgeek.com:

Kovalchuk, in his prime at 27, will earn $6 million in each of the first two seasons. But then he will earn $11.5 million each of the next FIVE seasons. Then his salary goes to $10.5 million for one year, followed by seasons of $8.5 million, $6.5 million, $3.5 million and $750,000. The last five seasons he’s scheduled to be paid $550,000 each. He will be 40 then.
