Its always a bit sad to read how maligned Russian players are in North America.

I've trained with Russians. They put a lot into their trade.

Guys like Kovalchuk are special talents. But don't kid yourselves...its all about the work he put in over 25+ years...to get to the point where he IS good enough to "walk away" from 77MM.

Its a dubious decision.

But please...don't try and tell me the guy wasn't/isn't as good as anything we've seen in the modern era.
