Kovalchuk completely screwed the Devils organization. I'm a Rangers fan and everything, but what a complete scum bag. Sheesh.

I bet he goes to play in the KHL. I would almost guarantee it. Even if it isn't this year.

This might be something this team cant recover from for a long time. This hurts so bad. This is going to be the most pathetic offensive team ever and there is nothing in the pipeline to fix it. Plus no first rounder next season. Ugh...

One of the most talented guys to ever play the game. I am shocked. I guess he really wants to go back to Russia with his family.

Maybe the Devils can hold a Kovy jersey trade-in like the Pats did with Hernandez.

Yeah I don't want to hear about his back if he's playing in the KHL.

Looks like there was something to all that preseason angst about him coming back after all. Thank god they didn't give him the C.

Unbelievably, had a Leafs fan contractor working on my yard today, got talking hockey and he said he figured Kovalchuk would be gone soon. Now boom. I gotta track that guy down for the ****ing lottery numbers.

This honestly might be one of the darkest days in your franchise's history. What a quitter. Sorry, guys.

What a bad way to go about this. If you're going to retire unexpectedly, at least have a press conference or a press release ready. Nobody is going to be on his side for as long as we're all left in the dark. I'm guessing he had a serious injury or something.

TSN article implies he wants to play in Russia and be closer to home and family, and his desire began when he played during the past lockout. He returned for the shortened season, but Luo was well aware of Kovalchuk's desire.

I don't even wanna see the lines without him. Here comes Tedenby in the lineup every night now.

I gotta wonder how long Lou knew about this. Did this have any influence on the Schneider trade?

he wasnt going to play until his early 40s anyways. st pete would have to offer him like 12m for the next 5-6 years to equal what the devils owe him. im pretty sure the russian khl stars wud be taxed less then he wud in jersey as well.
