Kovalchuk's quote that says he wants to stay in Russia is taken out of context. He wants to stay in Russia FOR the all-star game. He will be back and he is committed to the NHL. Keep looking for reasons to hate him because you can't take your Rangers glasses off though. Being Russian probably doesn't help him either. The guy played half the season in front of fans from his own home country. They voted him into their all-star game and are looking forward to seeing him. Now, RIGHT before that can happen, he's supposed to bounce back to NA. It's not that big of a deal that he wants to extend his stay and perform in the Russian ASG before coming back. He doesn't need camp, as he's been killing it overseas and we all know what line he'll be on, and it's not as if he's talking about missing games. He just wants to stay for the ASG. People just hate him because he's a Devil, and the stigma against Russian's doesn't help.
