First, there were a couple of players that are still Preds property (at least until June 1) but I wasn't sure if they had plans to come over any time soon or at all. Denis Kulyash is the first, who I know had a pretty strong year with CSKA. The other was Grigori Shafigullin, who I thought had a clause in his contract that would let him leave for North America if the opportunity presented itself but that may have expired when he joined Ak Bars Kazan.
Also, I wanted to get some opinions on Vyacheslav Voinov. Is he a very physical defenseman like Weber or more of a Suter-type defender (physical when he needs to be but tends to avoid it otherwise with good puck skills). The Preds need more of the former and we've got plenty of the latter but somebody brought up the idea of grabbing him in the 3rd round...
As for Voinov maybe this can help :
