Joined by Varlamov. Good for him, and good for that team. I kinda want a Lokomotiv Kuli jersey now.

Without an NHL contract isn't there some problems that might occur now if the lockout ends?

Not sure, maybe Panthers then can buy out rest of the contract.
Harvey Fialkov wrote about Panthers' players playing overseas, last sentence was interesting:
"Most of these contracts stipulate that the NHL player can return to his NHL club as soon as the lockout ends."

He'll be back.

Franson signed with Brynas for the entire year and he's an RFA, so he won't be back with Leafs if/when lockout ends....

Is this the same situation for Kulikov?

Franson signed a "full season" deal. Most players are signing shorter contracts with Euro teams during the lockout like 1-month or 10 game deals. Most likely (because there was no mention of his exact deal) that is what Kulikov signed and he'll be back when the lockout ends.

Separately, Franson was different because he wasnt being utilized properly with the Leafs and didnt really want to come back knowing he wasnt going to be given a fair chance at a top 6 role. The Leafs were giving good ice time to guys that shouldnt have been ahead of Franson at times (see Komisarek for example). Interesting move by Franson though for sure...guess he's going to force the Leafs into moving him at one point or another.

The KHL has a strict plan to attract players to go there. It involves letting them all leave the minute the lockout ends, although I'm sure that's just because the KHL is speculating a full season lockout so they can freely offer that.

I wouldn't say they're exactly trying to attract them. They have a limit.

They're catering to everything the NHL players want. A full opt out clause, money, a competitive league, a place where everyone else will be playing, etc.

They're trying to capitalize on the lockout. I don't mean they're trying to attract them in the sense that they're trying to take them for good, but just trying to take them for however long the lockout is.

It's a purely beneficial situation for the KHL.

They're catering to the NHL's stars and players born in former Soviet countries (ie. Antropov to Barys; Poni, Fedotenko and Babchuk to Donbass). It's a good system of promoting hockey growth in Russia and its neighbours.

Montsy14 10-08-2012 11:40 PM
