then dinamo made their offer which was not that bad financially as it was revealed by dinamo director matushkin and later confirmed by misha's agent greenstein. but grabovski finally has chosen cska.
not so much fans are happy now

it was such a long story, really. you can read some here about this - http://theleafsnation.com/2012/9/18/...-to-khl-update
after this there was cska offer

what about andrei - it's clear that dinamo couldn't afford his contract

sergei? i think that he will take third nhler spot in minsk
