Well, if he's willing to flush the cash, and the league doesn't have some sort of salary cap, he could sign as many of the Russian UFA's as he wanted.
I'm not a "euro-phobe", but it seems I'm not sure if the team as constituted would have the nastiness & defensive committment to be a serious contender. Only 3 forwards (Federov, Zhamnov & Antropov) have a defensive conscience, and only Kasparitis has a real physical presence on the blueline.
That being said, that team has a scary amount of skill. I think it's success would depend on how many of the non-UFA players listed they could acquire.
