You're right that no one forced him to sign what does that even mean? Again why does he have to care about the cup? Living in his home country trumps the cup. Good for him he's a sane human being. It's also perfectly reasonable if someone wants to take a few years of their life living in a foreign land to win a championship too. But his decision is perfectly sane
Well spoken. Kinda tired of all the Kovy haters. So he misses his family and don't find the NHL intriguing enough to stay. That's it, people make it sound like he ruined the leauge. And considering NJD, they signed a retirement contract, and that is what they got. The cheaters got cheated. Or maybe it was a part of Lou's plan...
