No Kaigs?

"Bad news on Malkin front -- NHL/IIHF deal is dead


Courtesy of the very reputable Tomas from letsgopens.com:

According to www.hokej.cz:

The GMs of Russian Superleague today unanimously rejected the IIHF/NHL agreement (all of the GMs voted against it). The representatives of Russian Hockey Federation and Russian Superleague will discuss the situation with IIHF president Rene Fasel over the phone later today.

A translated article posted by Tomas indicated that the GM of Magnitogorsk is looking for $10 million for players like Malkin and Kaygorodov."

From pens board.

I think they were looking for a deal on their own seperate from IIHF. The $10M would be for all propects taken from russia (as opposed to the $12.5M that is proposed for all european nations with the IIHF).

I don't think that this will affect Kaigorodov coming over. If Russia doesn't sign the agreement they risk loosing their players can leave without compensation if their not undercontract (that's my understanding atleast).

I'm realy hoping he comes over I think he could step right in and be a darkghorse for the calder this year.

That said, does anyone know that Kay's contract status is (for his Russian team of course)?

I am really looking forward to him centering our 2nd line this year.
