Not really. If they offer him similar or more money, he can stay in Russia.

It's also completely illogical to drop $80 million plus guaranteed 'and' forfeit any chance of ever playing in Sochi. Not to mention getting around a legal agreement.

Not without violating their own agreement.

That's nice. Not impressed with kovalchuk though. So much for that love of the dirty jerz.

I still want our 1st round pick back no matter what, why should we be penalized while teams like Chicago (Hossa) New York (Richards) Minnesota (Pari$e & Suter) and Vancouver (Luongo) get away with these "mega contracts"

So does Kovy go from greedy to... Loyal to his hometown/team?

For some reason part of me hopes he stays there for the rest of this year. And I love Kovy. It's his home, can people really hate him for wanting to finish the season?

Oh I'm catchin what you're pitchin now.

There's an agreement between the KHL and NHL and if he violates it then the IIHF would intervene and their jurisdiction is international play. So he'd be ineligible for some World cups and most likely the olympics next year.

That is why you saw a Radulov flee way back when and possibly Visnovsky this year. What olympics for them?

It's nearly a 99.75% certainty Kovalchuk will be in Jersey, which every reasonable person knows.

So Eklund will jump all over this rumor with something like, "I'm hearing from reliable sources that Ilya Kovalchuk will in fact be in New Jersey this season"

Then in a day or 2 when it's confirmed Kovalchuk will play for the Devils, Eklund will pimp his obvious "prediction" as some sort of Nostradamus success.

Don't forget about Ehrhoff. His contract seems to fly under the radar for some reason.
