Rare, but refreshing.

Certainly he's not a loser.

That said KHL is going to be more and more a reasonable option for many more players. Several rinks, including the one in Sochi, are putting a different potential spin on KHL. 5-10yrs from now who's to say that a Euro-Asian expanded league market doesn't hold similar weight to the NHL. The world order is changing. Economically, power, etc. NA's dance in the sun could be past zenith.
Kovalchuk isn't leaving for the money? So all those rumours of him getting 15M per season are bunk? Yes he left a lot of money on the table in north America. But it was so he could get even more money in Russia. He is 100% leaving for the money.
