They can keep Kovalchuk as long as they keep the Kostitsyn sisters over there.

well everyone keeps saying they can keep ovie... unfortunately that is not the case. Ovie was the first one on a plane back to the states when news broke of an agreement, he is already practicing with some of his teammates in washington. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=413076

Weird. Ovechkin was seemingly the most vocal about never returning.

I know, must have been a scare tactic...

Does anyone not think it's weird that Holland calls Smith on Sunday,pulls him from the Griffins game that day, and tells him to come to Detroit. Yet Datsyuk won't get on a plane until the deal's ratified?

Is he playing during this time in Russia. If so, how much would it suck if he got injured?

Edit: I know taking a cruise to Detroit from Grand Rapids is not like Flying across three continents. But if It's portant enough to pull Smith in from GRs even though he's helping them win (which is good for The Wings) why on earth is Datsyuk staying in Russia for the extra few days? Where are Brunner and Zetterberg?

And with that, combined with Parise's bolting, 50% of New Jersey's offense just dried up.

I swear if we are going to lose Pasha because of this lockout, I'd be done with this poor excuse of af a national hockey league.

 

Kovy mentioned before he wouldn't accept a paycut and why should he? He has signed the contract in good faith if others can break contracts, so can he. Devils offense will be pretty much non existent there guys are going to be Zubrus, Elias and Clarksson, Marty 1 year older and financial trouble hardly something to look forward.

We aren't. He said he's staying until the new CBA is officially ratified.

It wouldn't let me copy the specific video but the whole page skip the first video (currently about Ovechkin's return to the states) and go to NHL insider Jan. 8(currently the second video on the page)

I wouldn't go back. There's more money for them there, they're at home, no lockouts and best of all no Bettman.

Their contracts have already been broken, he's not breaking anything.

I get the feeling that Ovechkin loves the fast-paced intensity of the NHL.



Does anyone not think it's weird that Holland calls Smith on Sunday,pulls him from the Griffins game that day, and tells him to come to Detroit. Yet Datsyuk won't get on a plane until the deal's ratified?

Datsyuk is in Russia with his daughter. Smith was playing an hour down the road from Detroit.

Same here if you can play in your homeland, infront of your loved ones and not having to think about lockout every 5 years and make more money, it is a wise decision.

 

Pasha at this point can do whatever he wants, he has given me years of joy watching his magic on the ice, first class athlete if he wants to stay in the KHL it wouldn't even hold it against him. His Co GM called him cattle, owners broke contracts so why shouldn't players.

Oh good grief... get off the cattle thing already. I think Datsyuk is smart enough to understand the context of Jimmy D's comments and not hold a personal grudge.

 

I would hold it against Dats if he stayed in Russia; he signed a contract and he would be severely letting down the Red Wings organization who has given him so much.

This is about Kovalchuk, right?

Posturing on his part, plain and simple. However, this could become really interesting.

Hence my edit. Which was done 3 hours before your reply.

It was, but if you read through the thread you will see people have been talking about Yashin, Yakupov, Dats, Ovy, Smith, etc... kind of morphed into generally talking about players staying in the KHL, or not.
