I believe he only signed a 1 year contract with Dynamo, so if true at least the Habs wouldn't have to buy out his contract. The lack of a deal between the NHL and RHF could be a problem but Gainey might be able to just strike a deal with Dynamo.

One other detail is that even it was a multi-year deal - and I believe it was a two year deal, he is not obligated to fulfill the second year now, since he hasn't been paid in 5 months like the rest of Dynamo. Since he wasn't paid in full by April 30th, he has the right to nullify the contract.

I dont know anything about Grabs but I'd guess comparing him to one of the best rookies this year would be a suprise to me.

Have these guys been paid yet and will they get paid? I read at rushockey something about taking it to their union, hope they get it worked out. What happened though, to cause this. First Lada, then Dynamo with money problems. In your opinion what impact will it have on these two clubs if say the Habs wanted to sign Emelin and Grabovsky but offered a fair amount of money. Since there's been talk of money problems, would say Lada be inclined to take the money, or do you think they would rather try and keep their young up and coming players as in Emelin's case since he's a couple years younger and as you say Grabovsky is now free to sign elsewhere.

Why I ask is that I assume the Habs really want (and need) to get Emelin over here, but with the problems Lada gave the Caps (a situation I haven't followed all that closely) I'm just wondering if the Habs and Gainey can expect a hard time in getting Emelin (I don't even know if he's under contract for next year with Lada) But on the other hand I would think that Lada would really want to keep him if possible since he's young and likely on a cheap contract (I'm guessing)

Nope - haven't gotten paid yet. I would say Lada is in better shape than Dynamo, because they have no debts and had no illusions. They announced their problems and released their players. So, the team is in decent standing. However, Emelin's teacher coach Vorobiev left the team and I am not sure how well Lada can keep him if he wants to leave. In the past it has happened. I am not sure what his relationship with the teamm is - it's always a case by case situation.

As far as Grabovsky - he can definitely come over this summer. I like him and think he could learn a lot from playing in Hamilton. He needs to get stronger and use his agresiveness in North America and I would think he can adapt fairly quickly.

That talent analysis does not make me hungry for him. Unless he blossoms and becomes something that he currently is not, he does not sound like top 6 material.

Actually, I read a completely different talent analysis... He's talented, fast, great vision and passing skills but does not play too well along the board or in the physical departement. Sounds like a top 2 line forward to me, not a bottom 2 line physical, shut-down player.

So did I. And this stood out.

" Unfortunately, he is not big and lacks the strength to compete physically against bigger opponents."

The evaluators are a little on the fence with him, which does make me warm and fuzzy. The reason, if they are crazy for a player, he usually makes only a small impact in his first years in the NHL. So, by extension, if they are on the fence... that does not spell "sure fire hit".

Hell, I hope he is the next Pavel Bure, but the report is not 100% conclusive.

Some of that profile sounds like Plekanec to me.

one of his favorite moves is to fake a shot and then make a quick feed to an open player.

Sounds like a guy that could really make an impact in the new NHL. I'd sign him play him a year with the Bulldogs so he can adjust and if all goes well he could be ready in 2 years. He's had a lot of succes in the RSL which is the 2nd best league in the world so as long as he can adjust to the NA style I could see him being ready that soon.

Wow, a 5th-rounder! Looks like a steal to me.
Grabovsky could really become impact player in the new NHL.
