Kovy is too close to Malkin and Ovechkin to go to the KHL in his prime. He served as "mediator" between the other 2 at the All-star game last year, he brought in his "boys" Antropov and Afinogenov this year. If Kubina re-signs with Atlanta it will be because Kovy stays....if not, all we keep is a frustrated Antro with no other Euros.
He said he hasn't talked to Medvedev. Totally refuted that rumor. I doubt he would lie about talking or not talking to him. If Medvedev has spoken to Kovy, Medvedev would have bragged about it.
Kovy also constantly talks about loving to play in front of lots of fans. He's looking at ECHL type attendance in the KHL.
I think he has no interest in the KHL. Maybe when he's 40 like Jagr. So why burn bridges.
Besides, if he's worried about Atlanta folding, how would he feel about a whole league folding?
