Kovalchuk Says He May Stay in Russia


Recommended Posts


The NHL is balking at the situation, saying they and the KHL have an agreement in place that all contracts must be fulfilled before a player can leave for the KHL...but the NHL (the organizations, to be specific) also signed these contracts and should realistically be paying the players what they signed them for.

Of course, it's all talk. Even if there is a full 12.3% rollback, Kovy would still be making close to 10 million per.

But I understand why he's miffed about it. He signed that contract 2 years ago, and has been playing for a relatively low amount up to this point. Now that he's finally going to hit his payday, he's locked out, and the owners (NJ included) are saying they shouldn't have to pay what they agreed to.
