I wouldn't be shocked if they were offering to compensate us for the buyout AND pay Kovalchuk a similar/higher salary in Russia. They're throwing all their resources at him since he's the only one that pacified them with anything other than a flat no.

Of course they can't compensate us for twenty-five years of dead cap space that would result from the buyout :P

1/2: @TGfireandice: RT @IgorEronko: #KHL head Alex Medvedev says he'll be in NA in February to discuss with #Devils Ilya Kovalchuk's contract buyout to have him back in Russia.

Really? What's with these guys? Yeah sure we will buyout a 100 million dollar contract no problem so you can take our best player, that makes sense.


Seems like a real long plane ride just to sit down and hear Lou say 'no'.

I dunno how much trolling it is since they're probably laughing at him since this is obviously just a PR move with no chance of coming to fruition
