So far, Geno and Sarge are with MMK and Kulemin is expected to sign there as well, so they're basically at their limit.

Kovalchuk will play with SKA.

Datsyuk signed with his old team AK Bars.

Ponikarovsky and Fedotenko will play for Donbass.

Jagr and Plekanec will play for Kladno.

Bryz is expected to sign with CSKA.

And here's a link to the KHL website in English:http://en.khl.ru/

Anyone looking for streams can shoot me a PM and I'll be happy to provide the ones I have.
Thanks for the info, interested to see where Letang ends up.

I have always been a fan of Magnetogorsk, not like the rest of you bandwagoners. They are my first team since forever. I had a Magnetogorsk bumper sticker on the used Kontinental I had in high school. Russian hockey is in my blood.

How were you exposed to Magnetogorsk before Malkin Chancellor? Did you grow up in Europe?

I like Geno, but I don't see myself waking up at 7am to watch hockey

Guess I could flip it on while I'm getting ready for work though, heh

So, what you're trying to say is that you're a super fan?

That would be ideal but I don't see it happen, I'm not sure how much interest they'd get from Europe.

You have to earn top 4 roles. They don't just hand them to you, even if Strait and Bortuzzo didn't come down. John Hynes doesn't give handouts just because your a first round draft pick.

It doesn't matter they would still have to clear waivers to go to the AHL so it's not really an option for them.

I'm pretty sure they are allowing players on two-way deals to sign temporary AHL contracts to avoid waivers.

Yeah I agree with Morrow and Dumoulin but Tangradi needs to go down to WBS. I still have questions about if he knows our system. Well, after that Flyers series idk if anybody knows our system

You're not understanding. If Strait and Bortuzzo sign AHL deals, Morrow and Dumoulin won't even have a *chance* at earning a top 4 spot.

You're right but Strait and Bortuzzo are still good prospects that need to play. We can't have them sitting on their butts at home. Even if they didn't come to WBS, Rookies still have to beat out guys like Grant, Sneep, despres, and Reese. Those would be my top 4 right off the bat.
