If you connect the dots, it's not really that unreasonable.

Maybe it's not connected at all, but SKA reportedly wanted him too and was offering to pay him $4m/yr.

If you think he hasn't influenced other transfers, I don't know what to tell you.
I'm sure someone can come up with specific examples, as I'm not incredibly familiar with these things.
1. Barack Obama hosts a meeting where GMs of Edmonton and Washington are among the numerous attendees.

2. During the meeting the GMs start talking and agree to trade Nugent-Hopkins to Washington.

3. Some guy who doesn't know English claims that Obama intentionally facilitated the trade by setting up the meeting and influencing both parties.

You see how absurd that sounds? Seriously, Putin has waaaay more concerns than where a 17 year old kid plays hockey.
