It would be an interesting situation. That being said, I don't see him trading away players such as Naslund or Bertuzzi if the return isn't good enough.

What would really make this interesting is if he bought a struggling team(fan wise) such as Atlanta or Florida or some southern American team and then wanted to move it to Moscow. It could be the start of NHL Europe. I'm not saying it'll happen but it would be interesting. Does anyone know if NHL rules prohibit teams from moving outside North America? I know that a certain % of the other owners have to approve of any relocation move, but I'm sure he could buy them off with a huge Russian tv contract.

Just a thought....
