Just tossing this out for conversation: had Kovalchuk retired before the draft, would Nichushkin potentially have fallen further?

For me, it's the timing that is really disrespectful to the Devils organization. If, as that quote states, Kovalchuk made the decision in January, why wait until after the draft and the free-agent frenzy? Creating a hole on the top line before June 30 would have most probably changed several decisions, particularly with FAs.
