The Devils were probably hoping this would happen so they didn't make too much of a fuss about it on his way out. Katz would have been outside his window with a ghetto blaster in the rain if he pulled this on the Oilers.
If this happened to the Oilers, we would never hear the end of it.

"Kovalchuk leaves Edmonton for Siberia" etc.
