Asked him if he would even entertain Alexander Medvedev's request to buy out Kovalchuk's contract, Lamoriello said, "NO."
Kovalchuk will fly to NJ Tuesday and Lamoriello said he will practice for first time with team Wednesday.
Lamoriello said there will be "no repercussions" and "no penalty" for Kovalchuk missing start of camp. Thinks entire team will understand.
Lamoriello said he couldn't give Kovalchuk official permission to play in ASG for insurance reasons, but he had OK to play otherwise.
Lamoriello said Kovalchuk explained why he wanted to stay and play in KHL all-star game and that he understands why.
Lamoriello said he has spoken to Kovalchuk multiple times throughout.
Lamoriello finally just spoke definitively about Kovalchuk situation.
I imagine the NOFace when Lou said that, lol.
