Did Khokhlachev not sign with Boston? I assume this is a pressure tactic on Boston with the Spits not in the picture. Khokhlachev's injury probably made his family realize that he could be playing in the KHL for low to mid six figures while playing in the CHL without a contract has him risking permanent injury for pittance. He came to the OHL to get drafted and show the NHL that he was serious about wanting to play in the NHL - now they need to show they're serious about him by signing him.

Yakupov and Galchynuk should be pissed about this as NHL teams are already skittish about drafting Russians.

My butt wouldn't be too burned as Koko wouldn't be here as an OA anyways and it's not like we would have traded him as we need to make a deep play-off run.

I'm not too chapped about not getting Finlay either. Now he would have been a nice get if Koko leaves, but if Koko does come back Finlay didn't really fit in my opinion as this would have been my top six-

Rychel|Khokhlachev|Import Pick
Johnson|Vail|Ho-Sang
Marchese|Clarke|Maletta

Worst part about not getting Finlay is Czinder is back in the picture.
