Let's see, we could have Ememlin and Korneev added to this year players we will pick from the Draft.
Those two would at least have some NHL games.
So this would be half of a great draft year where 4 of our players end up putting NHL minutes....

And I am sure that some team could improve even more than the Habs.

Can you image a team that would bring 3 or 4 Russians in their roster in one year?
This could change the contenders to the cup.
While I do think it could be big, I think you are GREATLY exaggerating. Just because the best players in Russia may not have contracts right now, doesn't mean they're going to bolt over to North America right away.

And adding Emelin and Korneev to any team does not in improve their chances of winning a Stanley Cup this year. Yes it would be nice and those guys could develop into good NHL players, but right now they're just prospects. So 3-4 Russians wouldn't change who the contenders are.
