Kladno? This would be aboslutely fantastic... If i weren't going to the USA for the whole first half of 2013


Edit: Just to add something to the Kladno rumor: http://www.sport.cz/hokej/extraliga/...gr.html#hp-sez
This czech article pretty much sums up everything what has been already said about G going to KHL/Extraliga: Jagr advised G to go to the KHL (in Jagrs words "he would get tons of money there"), G doesn't want to go to the KHL/Omsk alone and he's waiting for some Canadian player to confirm he'd go with G. But if I remember correctly, Omsk doesn't have space for more than one foreigner which would mean G wouldn't go to the KHL. And there goes the important part - Jagr said that he believes that in case G doesn't go to the KHL, he'll go to Kladno. Money aparently is no problem for G - he knows Kladno can't afford paying him and he doesn't mind at all.
And one more fact I haven't heard before this interview: Although G's insurance semt to be insanely high (Jagr's words), some unique company offered that every player who pays his insurance himself would get 40 percent discount. This could pretty much solve the only problem (money) Kladno would have with signing G.
