Per Dmitry Chesnokov as of 10 hours ago -
"Last night we spoke with [Toronto Maple Leafs forward] Nikolai Kulemin's agent. I hope that in the coming days we will see the forward in Magnitogorsk. Nikolai is in Toronto right now, but if everything comes together, he will leave for Russia on the next flight."
This means that the last vacancy for an NHL player will be taken by Kulemin. You haven't even considered foreign born players?
VELICHKIN: "We were offered different options. But we are targeting Nikolai. If the number of NHL players in each team was not limited, we would think about foreign born players. But we don't have a choice here.
"We received calls from Crosby's representatives. They asked us about a hypothetical possibility of signing a contract with Metallurg. We said 'Why not?' But we never made it to the point of negotiations.
If Kulemin signs with Geno's team, they'll be at their 3 NHL player maximum.
