Basically ever since the lockout started we all kind of heard rumors that. Kovalchuk would wanna go back home so how surprised were you now here he is making the move. Well I think absolutely shocked especially today of all day and hit an occasional started the other day and all the players are we North America the guys over here go back and start training camp this burger with. And I I was in that we -- last summer quarter not -- that it had to happen. And you know the first -- it came and reminded how law Ian helped beat the hooters doubles.

About ten million dollars if he'd been cap space you know I would it. -- it'll be it'll bite you for now what's going on a quicker financial but they get out of that contract in here you'll never live up to the dollar amount. But what the point you'd expect someone to you making that so it was a mutual decision because that doubles -- despite all on so you know they weren't holding them back. They -- I believe they probably wanted to -- and wanted to get out on the financial obligation and -- -- rebuilding their crop.
