I thought the KHL reported earlier today that all NHL contracts will be honored, now they say this?

I was confused about that as well.

Seems like the KHL really wants players like Kovy to stay with them, and now are saying they will stop at nothing to do so...

I'm looking at TG's twitter for all this info btw...

Agreed, it's a bummer that after a week were the lockout essentially ends and the financial situation gets resolved that we still got to deal with this bs

Why... why do we Devils fans have to go through sh!t all the time! seems like for the last few years all we did was sitting back waiting, super nervous about "something"... kovy to sign... zach to sign... zach for arbitration... financial problems to be resolved...lou to make moves... playoffs (fun part but still nerve racking)...zach to re-sign... lockout... kovy to come back or not ?....

i cant wait to fvcking just sit back and relax and enjoy hockey

They're saying that they won't force players to leave, and if they want to stay then they'll help them

Maybe it won't take NHL fan protests to stop lockouts, just a stronger KHL

Zach was no doubt in my mind the hardest working player on the team. But that doesn't make him the best or most talented. I think you need players like Parise or Callahan on your team. Players that lead by example. But that work ethic can only get you so far. Zach wasn't dominant in the playoffs, and while I wouldn't say kovy was either he was playing with a serious injury and still out produced a healthy Parise.


Parise had to play with a hobbled Kovalchuk while Kovalchuk got to play with a healthy Parise. Kovalchuk had 1 even strength goal that was into a full net for the entire playoffs. I'm working on 'advanced' stats for the playoffs, but Parise did very well in that regard.

If this whole KHL business comes true you all know Kovy won't be the only Russian staying back.

I really don't see Kovy staying in russia. I think he is just sending a statement to the NHL that they can't keep locking players out. Also maybe pressuring the NHL to allow the players in the olympics in 2014.

Zach didn't play the entire playoffs on a line with kovy though. I would say the majority of the playoffs they were together but I think they were split up for the flyers and some of the rangers series. I could be wrong though. Either way I don't think Zach's playoff performance was a product of the way kovy played (good or bad). I just think Zach was never a game changer in terms or big goals or big assists or anything. I think the best Zach moment of the playoffs was when he chased down that Florida player in game 6 which ended up contributing to Zajac's OT winner.

If the KHL is really serious about trying this stuff then I hope they're positive that they'll be a viable entity for along time. If not they're going to put future players careers in jeopardy. I mean who the hell is going to want to take a risk at signing a Rusian player in the future if this happens?

I'm sorry no way Lou lets him do what he wants he will never play in a Devils jersey again if he does not cut the crap and honor his contract.
Let him stay just his attitude stay in mother Russia and play with Putin. This pisses me off.

with all those statements coming out and hearing Kovy himself not re-assuring that he doesnt know 100% if he'll be back... scaring the sh!t out of me, real nervous now

but LETS SAY he would indeed walk... do you think Bettman would be kind enough to give us back our first round pick considering the situation? serious question.
