Probably blown out of proportion. Kovy was homesick without his family and talking personally with his mom about maybe NJ not being the right call for him. Maybe not the best thing for his mother to be discussing with the media.

We all struggle sometimes and contemplate things when times get rough. Kovy stuck it out and turned it around. True character.

Kovy could have been traded to the Islanders possibly if Kovy was willing to go through with it and that 10 year 100 million offer was legit.


Even if it was, a 15 year 100 million dollar deal is way worse than 10 years, 100 million dollars. The Islanders had the lowest actual payroll in the league - they used lots of players who had effectively unreachable bonuses to make it to the salary floor. The Kovalchuk deal, for a good portion of it, pays out several million dollars above the cap hit. That would be disastrous for the Isles.

Even now I don't know who would take on this deal if in theory it had to be traded.
