So Kovalchuk pulled a typical Russian and has retired at age 30, completely screwing the Devils.

This is why you don't draft or sign Russians.

The Devils basically just got away with giving Kovalchuk a 3 / 23 deal, and all it cost them was one draft pick and $250,000 until 2024. And it's not like they were going to be Cup contenders in the next two years, anyway. This hardly "screws" them.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

All this proves is that the KHL cannot be ignored as a potential destination for Russian players. Who can blame them for not wanting to play close to their home?

Yeah, it must be hard to live so far from home for so long. I did it for three years when I lived in Romania but I wouldn't want to to do it for 15 or 20 years.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

As a Devils fan, I'm fine with Kovy's decision to return. I don't know about any precedent, but if the NHL can't compete for Russian players - it has nothing but itself (and its mismanagement of the league) to blame.

More interesting to me is the decision from Glendale to give the Coyotes a guaranteed $15M a year when the prospective buyers have an out-clause after five years. Looks like a relocation in the making.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

Bettman knows his legacy is expansion and to a finer tuned point, Phoenix. All of the fans and analysts who wonder why he won't admit Phoenix was a failure; that team will stay there until city council rides them out on a rail. The villain in Phoenix is not a man protecting his legacy, but the city council, who decided to keep giving the team money to stay in a place that obviously doesn't want them.

As anachronistic as the opinion is, yes.

Canucks will retire Pavel Bure's No. 10 during 2013-14 season.

well Alfie is set to break his silence in Ottawa today at 11:00. Should be interesting to hear his thoughts. Whatever his reasons I wish him well.
