I expect McPhee would have done a bit of reduction of expectations and damage control already when he was interviewed if he had a good chance of not getting Kuznetsov to come over.

I'm pretty certain there's minimal chance he would have let that be the front page of the team website (with the interview on him and talking about what he can do) if they thought it was a toss up or less to get him over here next season.

While I do think it's still in the air, and I think there's a chance a monster offer could keep in the KHL or some crazy underhanded MOB/military junk that is possible in Russia, I expect McPhee has an idea that it's a pretty solid chance he will come.

It might be something like 75-80% to give a random guesstimate, but he would downplay the chances of him being here a lot more and sell the he could stay.
