I'm thinking that it may be with an NHL team. The KHL season does not start until September 8 so he does not have to rush and sign there now. That leads me to think this might be with an NHL team instead.
Also, Atlanta just cleared some cap space and budget space by getting rid of MacArthur and T.White. I know they only offered Max a 1 year deal so far and he didnt like that, but maybe they are now willing to go for 2 years?
I've heard it said that Max doesn't really have a road back into Russia, that he burned a lot of bridges/considered North America his home now, and wouldn't play for the KHL? I've asked about it, but I can't remember getting any responses from anyone who remembers hearing the same thing. Anyway, the point is that considering the paycut he took last year to play for a team that wasn't necessarily a contender, and the fact that his value is higher now than it was then, I definitely see Max staying in the NHL.
