LOL, unless he is really 32, not 30, that dream is a long time off.    Has anyone explained that to him or his mom yet?

Maybe they're so delusional over there they think the KHL winner will get to challenge for the Cup the next few years :P

I believe all the NHL teams have to agree for his return. Am I right?

I don't believe 30 NHL teams will want him back.

She works for him.   It's one of those business relationships they'll do a human interest story about 10 years from now, when he's broke and wanted in the US for tax evasion.

I suspect he'll be back in the NHL in 5 years.

 

Not with the Devils, mind you.  But I kinda thought he'd go the Jagr route.

I thought the main reason he went to the KHL was because he wanted to raise his family in Russia. Living in his home country became more important than having a shot at the Stanley Cup. It makes me wonder if the Devils organization is his problem.

 

If he wants to come back while he still has a decent chance of winning the Stanley Cup, he'll have a hard time being accepted by the NHL.

 

That's, of course, if there's any truth to this report. I can't comment on the legitimacy of the source, but Kovalchuk usually says the "right" thing, and I'm suspicious he would not have said that after signing a contract with a team that cannot win the Stanley Cup, regardless of whether that's how he really feels. Also, remember a few months ago: "I didn't retire from the NHL to talk about returning to the NHL." I can't imagine he's already regretting that decision.

Not me, he can go **** himself.  You can't rely on a nutty merc to be any kind of a key player for you.  Especially after he cost the Devils two draft picks and $3 million for exactly one and a half 'good' seasons.

Well I'd rather see the team be as good as possible rather than continue to be butthurt about him leaving.  It's not fair to say he cost the Devils those picks and $3 million, it's not like they knew they would have to pay that in order to sign him.  Actually that wasn't even for signing him since the league voided that contract anyway.  That punishment is so ridiculous the only people you can point the finger at is the NHL itself.
