on kondratiev playing in hartford...

i think the fact that he'd be able to play with tyutin should make him more willing to play in hartford (and that isn't just on the ice, it applies to having a friend off the ice too)...

and i also think unless they are idiots, kondratiev and his agent will recognize the opportunity he has right now to make the big club in ny (almost the complete opposite of his chances in toronto) and if he is smart he'll know that playing in hartford during the lockout would give him an opportunity to be right at the front of the list to get one of the nhl spots when the season ends. whereas if he is back in russia, it might be an 'out of sight, out of mind' situation and he'd run the risk of getting bumped down the depth charts by guys like lampman or liffiton if they play well in hartford
