That's the reaction I would expect from Devils fans.

Yeah, I didn't realize they lose a first round pick too.

Devils (and Kovalpuke) got off relatively lightly.

They had a cup run and now he is done. Win Win for all parties involved, he will make a ton of money in Russia without the rough play.

Kovalchuck saw New Jersey get Schneider, sign Ryder and Clowe. He was like, "I don't want to play for a decent team!", and bolted.

I have to believe the Devils had something to do with this. That was an ugly contract and with Cap going down, they need to do something. Getting rid of Kovy is too much of a "blessing" for the Devils. Teams like NYR and now the Devils, need to pay for their actions. You wanted to blow your wad on a player, now man up for it! This was a cop out for the Devils and Kovy. Teams are making NHL look like a circus. FA period is just a cluster of idiotic behaviour from the GMs and then moments later want to opt out of their dumb mistakes.

Nah. IK is going to get about 15-20 per year in the KHL, wanted to stay after the lockout, and apparently told Lou of his desire to go back home during the season. This was all on him. I can't say I blame him though. Getting paid more, returning home to play out your career? Can't say I wouldn't do the same thing if put in a similar spot. I feel for my Jersey friends...but I don't have this deep seeded hatred you guys seem to over the guy.
