This would've been the year for that. Short season, he was already playing in the KHL, etc.

Though, I can't even imagine the cap-circumvention penalties that would be levied on this team if that happened. If New Jersey lost a 1st rounder for signing Kovalchuk to a contract that everyone was doing at that point, I'm thinking the Caps would lose a whole draft (and probably Seth Jones as a part of it, given the record an Ovechkin-less caps would accumulate).
