Good to hear that he has a plan. Just hope real life doesn't get in the way (Traktor will toss quite a bit of money his way to try and keep him, I imagine, and of course there's the whole family angle that could always change his willingness to move) before all is said and done.

Traktor is a poor team.

This coming out about Kuznetsov and Leonsis recent comments about supporting Ovie playing in the Olympics next season all have to be more than just a coincidence.

Interesting that Ovechkin reportedly criticized him for not coming over.

A year and a half is a lot of time to change your mind. I won't be totally convinced he's coming over until he is in the lineup.

Well, at least we can chalk one up to saying he was staying because he felt he had the best chances to make the Olympics.

It would be kind of awesome if Kuz didn't make the Russian Olympic team.

So long as they don't get absolutely plastered by Canada again, I think they'll be okay.

What does this have to do with anything? He said after the Olympics. Nothing about winning gold.

You guys are the most pessimistic bunch I have ever read.

You guys clearly don't like Kuznetsov, you believe he is going to say this and do the exact opposite.

Considering Ovechkin's decline started right after the Russian debacle in Vancouver, I'd say it's a legitimate concern.

Why? Seriously I don't understand why that would be awesome or even in any way good.

Revenge for a prospect not coming over to play for a team as soon as some would have liked.

The ultimate revenge is sticking him in Hershey I would think

He'd go back to Russia in that case. Didn't he also say he wants top 6 minutes or he wouldn't come?

Well, he's in the right organization to think he's entitled to something.

I'll say it again, if Semin had waited until he was 22 to come over I bet things would have turned out better...

Coming over later would have had him play to his offensive potential the past two years?

At the very least coming over later would have avoided the peeing in Dave Fay's Wheaties fiasco and the hate Fay's disciples placed on him that he had to deal with his entire career in DC.

But yeah you'd have to be a pretty stupid individual to not understand that starting down a path at 19 does not get you to the same place at the same point in time as starting down that path at 22.

Thought Kuznetsov was better than Tarasenko in the WJC. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Do you think if Washington struggles and someone offers a couple good players for his rights they would consider moving him for immediate help?
