    He honored the length of his contract IIRC. If he had returned during the contract it'd been a problem.

    Don't see the problem with this. He obviously wanted to be a Ranger pretty bad if he's agreeing to a deal nearly 3 months before he can sign and without knowing who the coach will be. It doesn't "hurt the rebuild" if Buch goes from playing with McCleod to Kovalchuk (AV is gone, but still).

    I'm fine with it. He can still play.

    Get Gusev's rights from Vegas while you're at it.

    Kovy gets a bad wrap.

    I've always seen his exit from NJ as more of a mutually beneficial arrangement than anything due to the circumvention.

    Once he turns 35, he becomes a UFA. Free to sign with anyone.

That is a deal breaker. I would give him another year before that. If that is a demand then it’s a hard pass
    Can give him a NMC in Year 1 only. If it goes to shit in Year 2 need to be able to move him at the deadline.

    Oh give him the NMC if it saves a few bucks. He's not going to reject a trade in the last season of his contract if the Rangers are out of the playoffs, and havent won a cup, yet.

    He accepted a trade to NJ... i mean, come on...

    Kovalchuk Reportedly Getting Around $6M Per Season on Multi-Year Deal

    “Now, on the Kovalchuk thing we need to explain a few things. I don’t doubt for a moment that Kovalchuk is going to end up with the Rangers. And I could probably guess that there’s probably been some conversations, but just for the matter of technicality – he’s not technically a free agent in the NHL until his 35th birthday, which is April 15th. At that point he’s free to negotiate a contract with any team that he wants, and we assume it’ll be the Rangers. But we don’t know that 100 percent. And he can’t technically sign it until July 1, which is neither here nor there. He could obviously agree to it on April 15.

    “I don’t believe for a moment the Rangers will sign him to a three-year deal. I think they’d like to sign him to a one-year deal. I think Kovalchuk probably wants a three-year deal. My guess is it ends up being a two-year deal.

    “So to your point – why does a rebuilding hockey team want a guy of his age in their lineup – because they figure they’re got holes in their lineup. And it’s New York, and they want to try to be as competitive as they can be.

    “When they said we’re going younger and we’re going to do this, this didn’t say we’re tearing it down and we’re going to be absolute dog meat for three years and bottom out in the league. What they said was we’re going to add a whole bunch of kids and we’re going to move some of our guys off our roster to do it.

    They are. I have friends who are pissed. He cucked the shit out of the devils, set their franchise back 5 years, and now is going to the enemy. I had some pathetic friends who thought/hoped he'd go back to the devils.

    Everyone whines when the Rangers sign a big named player, or former star.

    Sounds like a recruiting move. Getting him here may entice Rangers property and future property playing in the KHL.

    Plus he will give the fan base a much-needed scapegoat.

    Yes. I always thought it was a mistake bringing Buch in without any fellow countrymen to help him assimilate.
