    In the past two years, Zach Parise goes home to Minnesota and now Kovalchuk goes home to Russia

    If I was from Somalia and living in Jersey, I might be tempted to head back.

    2 things come to mind:

    1) He realizes a stanley cup is not in the cards for the Devils in the very near future and 2) Lou worked his magic. I'm sure he had a one-on-one with Kovi and straight out told him that his contract is out of control. Somehow Lou was able to get Kovi to agree to let it go. I don't believe the retirement story for a second.

    Default Kovalchuk announces retirement

    What a total lack of class to announce that shocker now, when all the high-end UFA:s (who could have "replaced" him) are already signed...

    What an a-hole...

    Longer:

    Devils will be charged $250,000 vs. cap for each season through 2024-25 as the cap recapture penalty.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I would think the Devils would be stuck with most or all of the 12yr/7mil that's left on Kovy's contract.
