Khokhlachev to Spartak Moscow??

F Alexander Khokhlachev can play for Spartak Moscow next season, said his father and GM of Spartak. "It all depends on negotiations with Boston, he should sign with Bruins soon" IMO loan

Несколько месяцев назад вы говорили, что он может вернуться в "Спартак", и работа в этом плане уже ведётся. За это время он стал ближе к возвращению в "Спартак"?

— Окончательного решения на данный момент ещё нет. Мы ведём переговоры с "Бостоном". Идёт хороший диалог, и всё движется в хорошем направлении. Думаю, что в конце июня мы придём к общему знаменателю. На данный же момент идёт процесс подписания основного контракта Александра с "Бостоном". После этого будет принято решение о дальнейшем продолжении его карьеры.

- A final decision on this point yet. We are in talks with "Boston." There is good dialogue, and everything is moving in the right direction. I think in the end of June we have a common denominator. At the same time in the process of signing the main contract with Alexander's "Boston." After that a decision on the further continuation of his career.

**** stay away from the KHL kid!
sounds like hes trying to force the B's to give him a contract. They can't afford to lose one of their top Forward prospects to Russia for however many years.

they should try and convince him to give the AHL at least a year before going to the KHL.

He definitely cannot play in the AHL. In fact, he might not be able to play in the AHL for two more years, he was the youngest player in his draft class.

Quite simply, Koko is thinking that he wont be able to make the Bruins for 2+ years, and would rather go back to his home country/make money/play against better competition rather than play in the CHL.

Just because hes going to the KHL doesnt mean we lose his rights, or hes "gone forever." It means we keep him happy (while at the same time begging him to stay in Juniors) by letting him do what he wants, and 2-3 years down the road if he shows he can hang in the NHL then we offer him his ELC.

I wouldn't be so quick to say this is what Koko is thinking, as it's his father and the Spartak GM who are quoted in the story, as far as I can see. As a parent myself, I wouldn't blame his dad one bit for wanting him home, but what does Koko have to say about it?

I think he'd be eligible for the AHL in 2013-14 as he'd turn 20 in September 2013.

By Koko I meant Kokos camp, family, agent, etc. Who knows what Koko is thinking? I'm not going to pretend to know.

What i posted is a likely scenario, is it not?

Yeah I think thats correct.

To me it would be foolish to offer him a contract now and take up contract spot when he likely wouldnt make the team for a minimum of two/three more years. Hes shown the willingness to come over to NA to develop in the best Junior league in the world, I wouldn't bet on him staying in Russia for an extended period of time, kid clearly wants to play in the NHL.

I'd try my best to keep him in the CHL for a couple more years, but if he really wants to go back home for a year or two I don't think its the end of the world. Koko would be playing in Juniors for the next two years anyway, let him stay and develop at home (in the second best professional league in the world). Its definitely not going to hurt his development if thats what he chooses.

It's possible. Whether it's likely, I have no idea. The most important person in this whole deal is Koko himself, so I'd wait and see what he has to say.

Are you sure about that? He could very well be sitting there planning on listening to whatever his parents tell him to do, we just dont know.

All I was doing is pointing out what his reasoning could be...play in a foregin country for the next two years and make no money/live far away from his family or live close to home, make money, and still develop in a very good league.

Problem is the bruins can only offer entry level deal. KHL will offer millions

his contract slides when he's in junior so him taking up a spot isn't really a problem.

If hes in Juniors does it count as a contract spot? I know the years slide, but I thought it still counted as a spot nonetheless.

I only think they count if guys are playing pro but I'm not sure.

Couldn't the Bruins sign him to a contract then loan him to Spartak?

Not going to pretend I understand the situation and implications fully, but he would lose a lot of money. If he just signed with Spartak he would make a lot more than the ELC, which may be only 15% of the ELC (not sure).

If he plays in the KHL the Bruins will probably never see him again, that would be their usual luck with Russians.

Well this just simply isnt true. He went to the CHL and they were confident it wouldnt be an issue when they drafted him.

Plus, the Bruins are one of the best teams in the NHL (when healthy), if he doesnt wanna come back and compete for a Cup I dont want him here anyway.
