Kovalchuk Retired Effective Immediately?

I can only imagine the utter glee Larry Brooks and company will be in with their article about this tomorrow in the NY Post.

He'll be back.   Not like in a year or two, but he'll be back.   They always come back.   When he's broken down the money will get cut off and he'll be Jagr'ing his way through the league

 

Jagr is still a near-dominant presence 5 on 5.  Kovalchuk is not Jagr.  He could be back, but it would not surprise me if he never did.  Also wouldn't surprise me if he came back next year, would be sort of amazing if he did.

Can't believe this happened, It's just a betrayal to not only the Devils franchise and our fans, but to the NHL period!

This does truly suck, but I have faith in Lou. I bet he has something in the works. I think we're going to be just fine.

 

I never really felt like Kovi was a Devil anyway. To me, he seemed out of place here and was not the same player he was in Atlanta.

^^^ This 

 

ETA:  We have to pay $250K a year for the rest of the contract instead of his salary.  Be glad he left now and not a few years down the road where the hit would be in the millions.

Kovaltraitor just went from one of my favorite guys on the team to my most hated guys of all time. Even more than Parise or Gomez. Talent wise it sucks to lose him but the Devils don't need guys like that on the team. Good riddance.

This is all because of Bettman and his douche bag crew of greedy fvcking owners.  I don't blame the player at all.  The league didn't honor his contract and it pissed him off (and many others).

 Fact is that the Devils got worse today -- and they weren't all that great to begin with. Next season could be tough for NJD fans.

 

Coming out of the wood work now!!

IF they can get two of Brunner Grabovski and Jagr they are a better team.

I don't think #17 had anything to do with Parise not signing here/

 

#17 was a total class player while he was here.  I don't doubt his loyalty to us at all.

 

I think he honestly wants to go home (like Nieds wanted to play with brother out west) and he's lucky (like Nieds) that he's able to write his own ticket, so that's what he did.

 

He probably clearly signaled this to LL a while ago.  

 

It totalllllllly sucks for the Devs and fans.  I'm bummed but I don't hate the player.   It does pop our collective bubble from the last week or so

In all seriousness I hope he has a career ending injury so he can't collect all the money. The spineless piece of sh!t deserves nothing less.
