And we already have Curry, Thiessen, Modig for the AHL/ECHL slots. It would have been either Pechurskiy in Europe or Modig in Europe. I think I'd rather see what this Swedish kid can do in the AHL.

Pechurskiy is very young. Goalies take long to develop. I am not worried about this.
Do CHL teams have a limit on foreign players or something?

Yeah, someone else could confirm this but I believe every CHL team can dress two overage 20 year olds and two European imports. It may be three of each, but I believe the limit is two.

As for the goalies in Metallurg, there are 4 young goalies now:
1) Proskuryakov - was tearing up the KHL in the first half of this past season, then the team signed Koshechkin for some reason, and Proskuryakov get benched (some say he had an injury).
2-4) Bobkov, Pechursky and Voloshin. I guess the first two will be fighting for the 2nd spot.
This is precisely why I avoid anyone sign in Russia with a 10 foot pole. No one knows what kind of contract they signed.

It probably is the best for his development, but its only going to keep the Pens drafting almost exclusively from North America, we have to have the least amount of Euro's drafted since Shero took over.
