Kovalchuk Retires

Recommended Posts

Word is he's heading back to Russia to play for SKA. He gave up 12 years and $77 mil from the Devils but is expected to get 5 years and $50 mil in Russia. He essentially said he'd rather play in Russia and be with his family.

 

And on a side note Jeremy Roenick is finding new and interesting ways to rip Kovy on twitter. Good stuff!

He essentially said he'd rather play in Russia and be with his family become the first billionaire hockey player and have a scrooge mcduck sized vault filled with gold coins.

Not commenting on Kovy's play or worth but that contract has been an Albatross around NJ neck since they signed it. I'll bet there are a few in the Devils organization who are glad to see the back of him.

Keep in mind they still lose that 1st rounder next draft. Talk about the poster child of why you shouldn't sign monster life long contracts.

So true but that damage was already done. Nothing to do about it. Dumping the remainder of that 100K contract for a financially challenged franchise can't hurt.

Well, yet to be seen if it will or won't hurt them... What really sucks is he could have done this a few weeks ago before the FA started... talk about bad timing. Though it seems Lou knew about it since last year, so makes you wonder why he can't get a trade or signing done.

Good point. You would think it would have helped had it happened before the FA frenzy. The timing is curious if Lou knew.

I can't imagine how many injuries would result from doing that in real life.
