But the league chose to let teams keep their Russian picks due to them not signing the PTA between the IIHF and NHL. So we still hold the rights to Emelin, Sidyakin and Kruchinin as far as I know.
Yeah, I knew that, just gave the wrong reason. But it's true: until the PTA is settled or they make a decision on those picks from Russia, we have ''forever'' to sign him.
