We've always been respectful of the RSL. We haven't smuggled Emelin out of the RSL. We've let him honor his contract. Yet they take Perezhogin and are poised to take the brothers away from us to?
****, I hate Bettman.
They have let Andrei honour his contract too. He's a free agent this summer no? They are not smuggling Andrei out of the NHL as far as I can tell...
I understand your frustration, but it's a risk you take. Gainey and all the other GM's know these risks when they draft these guys. Let's just hope Andrei decides to stay. I think the biggest arguments for him staying are:
1. Potential for more $, if money is what drives him.
2. Playing in the best league in the world, if competitiveness is what drives him.
I don't buy the "brother" argument. It just means that Sergei will go back to Russia too if Andrei does.
