Thanks ... I was working on something and had Buffalo on my mind when I was typing that. If Russia doesn't sign the IIHF transfer agreement, it'll be interesting to see how the NHL handles the rights to unsigned Russian players - if there's an extension or not.

Other possible compensatory picks (comments are solely my personal take)
17, 2005 - Martin Hanzal, Phoenix (not signed, but I expect he will be)
20, 2005 - Kenndal McArdle, Florida (not signed, could go either way here)
26, 2005 - Matt Pelech, Calgary (not signed, chances may be better of him not signing)

No promises this time.
