Still find it perplexing. You've got one of the best players in the world and a guy who was a fierce and physical competitor while in Atlanta, and he gives it up to play in the B League. Might as well be a beer league ringer and he's got more money than he could ever spend on the table in either league. Now he can duck the top competition to go to a place where team planes crash and guys die on the ice while coaches look for first aid kits. Not to mention living in the greatest city in the world vs. shuttling across Siberia all winter.
Newark is the greatest city in the world? LOL
I seriously doubt Kovalchuk lived in Newark.
