Rumor: Grabovsky to Dynamo

From dreams about Perezhogin at WC to reality

Few interesting quotes from last articles about Dynamo-Neftekhimk series:

From 16.03.05 : http://metallurg.ru/news/16172/

But in a following season a few players of "Neftekhimik" will join "Dynamo". A surname while I shall tell only one - I am very interested in 20-years Grabovsky's services, the best forward of Neftekhimik.

From 18.03.05 http://metallurg.ru/news/16190/ Interview with Krikunov.
Q: Two days ago on press conference you have informed , that since a next season in "Dynamo" there will be at least one of players of your former team and forthcoming playoff oposite team - forward Michael Grabovsky. Why have decided to make this news public right now, before a series with Neftekhimik?
A: Because you have asked a concrete question. I have answered, that, leaving Neftekhimik, did not wish to destroy that has had time to construct, and to take away with myself hockey players. But since a following season Grabovsky whom contract with club comes to an end and ,possibly, some more persons will join Dynamo.

And now the bomb !!!.

Damn, and I thought we might see Grabovsky in Hamilton next year playing with Kostitsyn. Oh well.

At this point I really do wonder if any of the long shot European prospects for any team will ever come over to NA. From a Habs perspective, guys like Grabovsky and Korneev and Yemelin are still considered long shots to make the NHL. I doubt they would give up guaranteed 200K/300K contracts to play in Russia for a paltry 75K to play in Hamilton for a couple of years. It's not only the income loss, but would they be able to make up for lost time and money once they head back to Russia.

With the new CBA and hard cap coming in, its these guys (the middle to lower pack European) that will be the first casualties. They would probably be able to make more money by just continuing to play in Europe and cement their spots there as opposed to being run-of-the-mill types in NA.

I see more the Bashkirov / Streit types that would try their luck in NA. They are older and more established. If they make the NHL, fine, if not they can just head back to whereever they came from and pick up where they left off. For younger guys it may be more difficult to make that decision.

Its different for guys like Perezhogin, who is pretty much guaranteed a chance to play in the NHL and has an NHL sized contract to fall back on.

JMO.

At this point, Grabovsky looks like a big steal to me.

Maybe he will never make anything in the NHL, but people aroudn the league are already calling him the best forward on his team... in the best league in the world imo...

The Great Thing about Grabovsky is that he plays well within a system, he has proved that this year in The RSL, Nefthemik plays an extremely offense oriented game and Grabovsky fits in well. Now the problem in North America is not just contract oriented, it's also Defense oriented.
Kostsitsyn is seeing it this year, where he has beasically been forced into becoming a two way player,

believe me if he had the chance, Kostsitsyn would rather be in the RSL right now than battling it out with a Hamilton coach obsesed with Defense and a poor supporting cast due to injuries.

Grabovsky is an amazing player from the little Highlights I have seen and from what I hear here.

but these are different days, players will give up going to the NHL, just to play in a more offensive Europe where they can rack up points and Money ( 300 000 K, appartment and car included ?? sounds good to me )
