Though I agree that NHL should be stopped of robbing the players... but I don't think that NHL would be willing to pay the money... Some suggested here that NHL clubs should pay 10 million for Grigorenko etc. but it's ridiculous and never will happen... A better alternative would be that the youth team could receive a certain percentage of player's salary, say if a player signs 3 million per season contract, his club gets 200 000 USD from it, if the player earns 9 million per season, the club gets 600 000 USD... If a player has a long carreer in NHL, the club will get these 10 millions eventually and the league/ player could agree on something like that... not on paying 10 millions or even some 3 millions already, on the spot after the player had left...
