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.
I am not upset. I am saying he isn't leaving for friends and family as you suggested. He's leaving because he can make the money that remained on his NHL contract in 5 years and then return to the NHL or sign another lucrative KHL deal.

This move is all about the money.

Here is the rumour of his possible salary
