Ilya Kovalchuk to play in Russia - KHL Lockout Thread Part 2



Why? Because I can.



In Soviet Russia, the goal scores you. Welcome to the Yakupov show.



Borscht, vodka, Putin, dance music and much more.



NSFW. Enjoy.

Latest news:
- Evander Kane released by the Dinamo Minsk
- Rob Schremp sent down by the Dinamo Riga
- Lokomotiv Yaroslavl wins 4-0 against the CSKA Moscow
- Leo Komarov returns to the Dynamo Moscow, played for the Marlies to start the season
- Kovy and Tarasenko still tearing it up

End of message. Continue.

Not sure if it's been pointed out, but I had to do a double take on Yakupov. Dude looks like a cross between Adam Henrique, and Jamie Langenbrunner!

Also HOPEFULLY with any luck by the time this thread gets to 1000 posts it's locked up because we're playing NHL hockey again!

Holy **** Kovy's +17 in the KHL puts him in 4th place, with a 3 way tie of players holding a +18 for first place!

My god if Kovy could get a plus rating that good in the NHL, and an insane point total, he's a Hart Trophy candidate hands down. If his plus/minus was that good last season and top 5 in the league in both goals, and points, he would have possibly been a candidate. Still wouldn't have beat out Malkin, but might have been nominated.

KHL is still a different animal than the NHL. Closer than ever, but still.
His numbers won't translate back here, but it definitely seems like he's rolling with his more rounded game.

Just as the previous one.

It`s less confusing this time around though.

Sovetski Sport magazine is apparently reporting that Kovy is leaving, due to personal reasons.

edit. false alarm, Paper now quoting SKA, saying it's not true and he will play tomorrow.

His improved game might translate somewhat, but I agree, he won't be scoring nearly as much.

I think he can score as much in the NHL, and he will I think but his streak is slowly coming down. He had almost two points per game at one point, but now it's closer to 1.5 a game. I just hope he doesn't use all he's got in the KHL right now.

If there is a season in the NHL Kovy will have played more than anyone else on the team, and have the most mileage by the time things get going. He already sees many marathons most NHL games to begin with.

Haven't been here in a while but does anyone think that Lou will sign a player or two from St. Petersburg SKA? They seem to have amazing chemistry.

Hopefully. At this point it would suck not to try to get Tikhonov.

It's definitely worth a shot to try, he could probably be had for cheap.

There's a concern about him wanting to stay in Russia, though, no?
I wouldn't want to hand over any kind of value, regardless of how low, if he didn't show the slightest interest in playing in Jersey.

If he'd consider it, I'd love for that to happen.

I think if Lou is interested in Tikhonov, he will get Phoenix's permission to gauge his interest in coming over before trading for him.

Correct me if I'm wrong here but doesn't the NHL control the Coyotes?


Or was that another team?

They have to give final approval on all their moves, but supposedly Maloney has more or less a free hand to run the team the way he wants to.
