danaimo Posted July 11, 2013 Share Posted July 11, 2013 News is breaking that Ilya Kovalchuk is going to retire from NHL hockey and return to Russia. There is speculation that the Devils will allow him to do this and so that he will no longer be bound by his huge contract which then becomes null and void. He is free then to go to Russia, but if he wants to return to North America, he could do so under a new contract with a new team. If this is allowed to happen then there is nothing to stop Roberto Luongo and the Canucks from following suit. Also, if Kovalchuk is allowed to do this, the Canucks would definately have a greivance against the Devils having traded Scheider to them largely because of the enability to void the Luongo contract.
