Great signing for Minsk! It's a shame they couldn't get Grabovski or either of the Kostitsyn's. Anyone else linked to Minsk?

grabovski has his ties with yunost' minsk (which now in the vhl), which is dinamo rival. he had played as a younster for yunost hockey school. so, at first, he considered playing for them, though their coach and his friend and mentor zakharov told him to play in the khl ("there is nothing to do for you in the vhl, you need to play on a higher level")
then dinamo made their offer which was not that bad financially as it was revealed by dinamo director matushkin and later confirmed by misha's agent greenstein. but grabovski finally has chosen cska.
not so much fans are happy now

it was such a long story, really. you can read some here about this - http://theleafsnation.com/2012/9/18/...-to-khl-update
after this there was cska offer

what about andrei - it's clear that dinamo couldn't afford his contract

sergei? i think that he will take third nhler spot in minsk

As I understan the article at Dinamo´s site, Kane´s year of birth, 1991, was important for GM to sign him. KHL club is obligated to dress 2 guys born 1991/younger at every match and CAN add another two kids born 1991/younger. Is it a smart move by Dinamo, temporary, not the best for kids in Dynamo´s system (MHL)

it would allow not to dress shelepnyov but have lalande or haugen as rinne backup, i think

shelepnyov is 1993

it's a big bonus to what kane can bring to the team.

This is huge news. Im totally following this very closely way to go Kane!!!!

He's also been to so many of the past WC that I dont think the large ice surface will be much of a problem at all

The first African American must be Nigel Dawes.

My understanding is that Evander Kane is the first Canadian NHL player to sign in the KHL during this lockout.

I believe Kane would be considered a Black Canadian, not an African American.

None of the players mentioned: Dawes, Kane, Emery are African American.

I know it has nothing to do with hockey, but anyway: If "African American" means "American (in terms of continent) of African descent", why aren't they? Are they just very suntanned norwegians?

I ask a simple question not involving race, and people have to bring up race.

Then again can't blame you guys because it seems not even the people advocating the "color blind society," stuff are the biggest race baiters in the world.

We don't use African-American in Canada. They're 'Canadian' or if you need to bring race into the discussion they are 'black Canadian'. Most black Canadian's have no idea of any African-heritage and better identify with Carribean countries or just with Canada anyways.

I hate the use of African-American because it encourages seperation on a racial basis when it's not necessary. We don't call white North American's 'European-Canadian' or 'European-American' because most people don't identify as European. It's the same thing with black-American's. You can properly call them 'American's of African ancestry', but using African-American (unless the person was born in Africa and emigrated to the USA) is incorrect. I know some white people who were born and raised in Africa with their entire families still there who now live in the USA; do they qualify as African-American as well?

I don't think there are many spots left for NHL players at this point, at least on big teams

Well, Atlant, Lev, Dynamo Moscow and Dinamo Minsk are left in the West, Salavat, Ak Bars, Avangard, Traktor and maybe Barys - in the East. Some teams (e.g. Ak Bars) will probably wait with their decision until winter to see if the the whole NHL season is cancelled.
