If Omsk performs well, and JJ is having fun winning he may very well desire Cherepenov to stay with the Russian team.

He could wield as much influence on the kid staying in Russia as he could on encouraging the move to the NHL.

This is the worry about the KHL. Jagr gives them a real bona fide proven elite STAR. If he shows he still has the magic and the team is excited, a young Cherry could prefer more money and playing with his idol over the prestige of the NHL.

I'd say Cherepenovs future is more a mystery now than on draft day 07.

Funny how the web gets weaved sometimes huh?
