In last 24 hours, multiple sources told me NHL teams would do well to have roll call because it's possible a RUS player or two may not show.

Two things to keep in mind: 1. Many RUS stars publicly stated earlier this season they might stay the entire the year in the KHL.

2. NHL-KHL have post-Radulov pact to honor contracts. That said, been suggested to me this entire issue could heat up again. We'll see.
That will come to a head eventually I suppose. Aren't there only like 20-30 Russians in the entire NHL now?

Malkin is on a tear over there, he and Mozyakin have to be on pace to set some records. Have to wonder if he doesn't stay just to finish it off.
