Not at all. They have the wrong info. A while back the Slovak federation released a short statement that they were trying to agree an amendement to the current agreement between them and the NHL (which was agreed a few months back). The article stated that it was what was preventing Jurčo from signing with the Wings.

Sounds like total bollocks about a missing agreement between IIHF and SZĽH. I mean SZĽH is a member of IIHF, do they even need to have a transfer agreement with them? Also, if it was about something with the IIHF it would prevent our players signing contracts everywhere, but all of them except for Jurčo have signed contracts all over the place without any trouble.
