If nobody has room for him, and the Isles still don't want him in Bridgeport, I think Europe would be the only other option, which certainly isn't ideal.

I dunno the rules of switching junior leagues...but I wonder if he can go from the QMJHL to the WHL or OHL, if there's a team that wants him. With his performance at the end of the season and playoffs, I'm sure someone will take him.
More likely his Q team would try to trade him to another team for a draft pick. The question is how many teams expect to be contenders this year and can take on another import?

If I was Snow I'd be on the phone with the Niagra team's GM asking him to trade for Kabanov.

Always seems to be controversy surrounding KK, whether by internal or external factors.

And to make it even more confusing...Frischmon, Strome, and Kabanov were all moved from the Prospects/In The System page to the Isles main roster page. I know that really doesn't mean anything, and Kabanov was told he's not making the Isles or Bridgeport. But I don't know why they even bothered moving him and even Strome, if they're both bound for junior.

Can players form the Q even be traded to teams in the OHL?

I was under the impression that since it's the CHL as a whole that a player can be moved anywhere. I'm not too familiar with the rules and practices of the league though so I could be wrong.

Kabanov's Junior team is the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. Currently they have 2 Europeans, Viktor Hertzberg from Sweden who just came back as an overager, and 17 yar old rookie Ilya Nikolayev. Chances are, if Kabanov was re-assigned to the Armada, they will release Nikolayev and go with a 1-2 punch of Kabanov and Hertzberg. The Armada are not the most offensively dynamic team, so adding the likes of KK would be a good thing.

Also should be interesting to note that the President, GM and Assistant Coach of the Armada is former Islander Joel Bouchard.

Trades can only happen between teams in the same league. So in Kabanov's case, his team can only trade him to another team in the QMJHL.

However, there are situations were players can switch leagues. If he's put on waivers in the Q, and all teams pass on him, he's free to be signed by any team in either the WHL or OHL (there might be a waiver priority to determine who gets first shot at these "free agents").

Former Islander Jon Sim actually went through this. He started in the Q, but for whatever reason didn't stick, and was waived through the league. Sarnia, in the OHL, picked him up.
