That and the previous comments made by Trunev makes me wonder about his desire to ever cross the Atlantic instead of staying at home in the KHL. There's plenty of time ahead for him, but it hasn't looked good, yet.
Last time Timmins talked to Emelin was in April or that's what I understood as well. As far as Trunev is concerned, it seems more a question of the kid wanting to crack a KHL lineup and being able to play in the U-20. I do read that there is an interest from the kid to play in NA though. Right now, while I'm frustrated to not see him in the Q, we have to take it as a win-win situation since he's staying in Russia. He doesn't play, he'll be frustrated and come after his contract expired. He plays, he becomes a better player but still can come if he wants to. But I'm trying to convince myself of this 'cause I would have wanted to see him so much in the Q.....
