Would never have happened if he didn't chicken out of playing here

Obviously it's a serious situation so all kidding aside I hope he makes a perfect recovery.

Well, Ak Bars somewhat holds back on youngsters. Probably due to the case that they are a big team, they walked three times in four years to the finals, and thus they have a stacked team with many veterans, it's hard for a youngster to chip in and play. There are some exceptions, Nikulin and Kazionov are among them. But many others, just like Koshechkin, Korneev, Shafigulin, Petrov and in part Emelin, quite a bit faded away after they moved to Kazan.
Koshechkin, Korneev and Shafigulin moved to another team. The first two really rocked after it. Maybe to Petrov and Emelin, the same thing will happen.

Well I think the reason might be that a kid from poor team transfers to AK Bars and his salary increases by several times. So it becomes a "life is good" attitude that spoils many young guys. Btw from your list you forgot once superpromisisng defenseman Andrei Zubarev.

True. Now he's candidate for the national team.
And about Emelin: you're right in principle, but if you remember, Emelin was signed to a big paycheck by Lada the year before heading to Kazan.

Does that count since he had to take them to court to pay him?

The same, his contract with CSKA expires the same day. Granted they could have re-signed, just that I haven't heard it.

Is it rare for players in Russia to not be re-signed at this point in the season if the team intends on keeping them ( or if the player intends on re-signing)?

No, I don't think so. I've heard that Perezhogin is working on a deal with his former club Omsk to which he broke into the RSL with and Emelin said in an interview at russianprospects.com that he hopes to re-sign with AK Bars, so I assume things are being worked out. Doesn't mean they still can't sign with NHL clubs, if they have an out clause or can work something out with their club. I hope to see these guys come over, but I wouldn't believe it until I see them at camp in the fall.
