Jan Marek

I wonder if it would ever be possible to bring him over. He is absolutely lighting the KHL up. 56 in 38...like holy crap. I think he could withstand the NHL.

He's not coming over. He'll make more in the KHL than he ever will here.

He won't accept a 2-way deal or entry level salary, which the CBA mandates, therefore, he will never play in the NHL.

He has a good shot at making the Czech olympic team in 2010. He is one of those players like Morozov.....highly skilled player but doesn't have what it takes to have a good NHL career. He is better...and will be more successful where he is now.

I think Marek got what it takes to become a Danny Briere type of player in the NHL. He isn't really soft or afraid to get into traffic at all. He is kind of a late bloomer though.

Though Slats screwed him up trying to save 200k for Dolan... Now its too late to bring him over basically.

That's probably the only time that Slats ever tried to save any money for Dolan.

He wasn't a throw-in. John Seymour in that trade was a "throw-in".

The Kings flew out and met with Jan Marek. They even offered him a contract. But since Lombardi couldn't guarantee him a spot, he declined and the Kings then got a 3rd rounder as compensation.

The situation with Jan Marek is very similar to Brunnstrom. Jan wants a guaranteed spot on a team. But teams have been leary giving him that demand based on his size. And now with the money he's offered in Russia, there is little to no financial carrot for Marek to come over.

He's been doing real well overseas for a while now. I think, if he was to come over, he would have when Jagr was here and he was still officially part of the Ranger's organization.
