There's way too much money left on Kovy's deal to walk away...

Pro-rated $11 MM this year, and then $47 million over the following 5 seasons ($11.3 MM, $11.3 MM, $11.6 MM, $11.8 MM, $10 MM). He only made $6 MM per season for the last 2, so he's into the prime money years of his deal. He'd be nuts to walk away...

Then again, with the tax situation in Russia, he'd only need to make about $6 million/year from the KHL to break even...
