I haven't been tuned in much to this so never heard the rumors.

In anycase what is the issue?

Those of us old enough to remember the WHA know that an NHL contract is only ever an NHL contract.

So what if Kovi can make more money playing in his country of origin. Why wouldn't he?

Not sure why people are upset about this. I don't get it.
