Kovalev's vertigo may be career threatning...

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=200082&hubname=

I have a question on this. If Kovalev is forced to retire because of this, what happens to his contract?

I'm not asking this because I want him gone I'm simply curious.

My understanding is that he goes on long-term disability which means that his contract does not count against the cap.

As frustrating as his play has been this year, I hope his career is not over. I would'nt wish that on anyone.

Well he would still get paid but he would not count against the cap.

Ok that makes sense. I would assume then that the team has insurance on there where they wouldn't nessasarily pay for the salary.

Personally, I hope his career is not over because I still beleive ha can help us make the playoffs and can especially be clutch during the playoffs.

Vertigo is bad news man. Serious cases take years to get better.

If he ever was to retire, here is what would likely happen:

- Habs place him on long term IR for the duration of his contract. They are able to ''replace'' him with a player of the same salary.

- Kovalev still gets his money, but insurance covers a good chunk of it from a Habs perspective I would imagine.

That's pretty much what happened with the Bruins and Zhamnov last summer I believe.

Insurance will likely pay 80% of his salary and his cap hit would be ZERO since he would be on LTI.

Well look what it did to Hackett... I hope it doesn't do the same for Kovy.

Speaking of the goal song and without trying to be to insensitive...say Kovalev did retire from vertigo. Do you think they would change the goal song?

Yeesh, I hope it's not that serious...remember, Hackett retired because of it though. I had a teacher in college who had vertigo and he sometimes missed months of class on end because he couldn't get out of bed. Don't know whatever happened to him or if there's even a way to "cure" it though. Good luck Alex.

My dad actually had vertigo a few years ago (5-7). He was so sick that he was not able to even sit up for long periods of time or focus at all. In the inner ear there is a liquid or something like that which controls all of your balance if it is out of whack there is not much you can do.

The fact that Kovalev can even skate is pretty impressive and would lead me to believe that it is not as bad as it could be.

"Kovalev's vertigo was flu-related, but he says that is not the case. Kovalev sat out Tuesday's game against the Islanders."

It's Media-related.

IT's what you get when you do a poorly-timed interview in a Russian magazine, and then have to spin like crazy to control the damage after it leaks to the habarazzi hordes. And yes, it is career-threatening.

Yeah Kovalev's gonna retire because of a stupid story that may or may not be true. Go away.
