It was more a matter of wondering whether they changed the rule about signing a player late in the season wrt them having to go through waivers (doubt they'd bring him over to play in Hershey on a PTO or the like, so if they didn't somehow sign him some time in the offseason and loan him back to the KHL for his final year there...) but I'm not totally clear on the ins and outs of what their options would be should the time come.

Kuznetsov 2 goals in 3 games in EHT Oddset tournament for Russia. Both were goals off rebounds.

My first thought when I saw the news was I hope Kuz wasn't vaporized.

He's in the playoffs any way and I assure you he's planning to stay there all they way to mid-april and then go to the Worlds.

Guy doesn't want to come over, and frankly, I've pretty much cancelled his name from my mental list of future Caps lineups. It was a wasted pick by McPhee.

Go away.

I promised to play for Washington after the Olympics, Kuznetsov said, as translated by RMNBs Fedor Fedin. I want to play in [DC], but Im playing for Traktor right now. I have a contract and I will continue to fight with sweat and blood playing for such a great club.

Sure about that? Seems logical for him to develop someplace where he gets top 6 minutes. He'll be here after the Olympics.

Either way its called logic. His number is already in Traktors rafters. Traktor is a poor team.

His obvious choice is the NHL.

I fail to understand why there is any questioning about whether or not Kuznetsov will come over – is it only because he's Russian? He's repeatedly said he will come over as soon as his current contract is up, and he signed his current contract a year ago because of obligations to Traktor / not feeling ready for the NHL / wanting to ensure a spot on the Olympic squad. I see no reason why we should question any of that?

The reason you might question it is just because you never know how circumstances will change. Even if he's honestly planning to come over, you never know until it happens. The money may be too good for him to make the jump (whether it's Traktor or some other club with more resources... not that hard to beat an NHL ELC even with bonuses). Maybe his family will become rooted and he'll be uncomfortable leaving them or moving them.

(And yeah, that's based on him being more or less a budding star in the KHL. He'll get offers that other guys won't).

It's silly to write him off, given how strongly he's seemed to state his intentions. But until he's here he's not here, so it's tough to know exactly what to expect.

I have an audio of that, guy who did that interview posted that on his site and Kuznetsov there sounds even more confident about that than he was from the article posted on allhockey.ru originally. So there's no doubt that he said that and the author correctly presented it in the article. Audio can be found there, author of the interview e-mailed it to our editors. http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks...at/#more-43827

KHL RFA rules explained:
http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks...eny-kuznetsov/
On May 1st 2014 Kuznetsov won't be 22 yet so it'll be very hard for him to move to another club. I think Traktor has the financial ability to qualify him and they have repeatedly stated that they're not interested in moving him to a different KHL club (they have had a lot of chances to do so). For them it makes more sense to let him go to the NHL keeping his rights then trade to another KHL team.

Oh, thanks for that. That makes things much more encouraging (from a Caps perspective obviously).

Kuzya 0 points in first 2 games, his team is down in the series 0-2...

On the other hand Nichushkin has 3 points including 2 goals.

I don't believe they're going to be eliminated... too good for that.

Kuzya just needs to start scoring, he's creating a lot, just not scoring...

Which is fine by me, rather have him creating chances and not scoring than not scoring and being invisible, but the way some people(score sheet watchers) act, you would think he was totally invisible.

The problem overall right now is 16 shots against and 41 for, but losing 3-5.

The problem is A) Aside from Kuznetsov, Traktor's top forwards don't create much (Chistov, Bulis, Kontiola) B) Dawes/Boyd/Bochenski line is tearing it up for Barys.

Reading one of the O'Reilly articles on TSN it says this:

Quote:
But the recent Memorandum of Understanding between the league and Players' Association says all players on a club's reserve list and RFA list will be exempt from the application of 13:23. Therefore, teams can now sign their own restricted free agents or draft picks out of Europe in mid-season and get them into their NHL lineup without risking them being plucked off the wire.
So does that mean at the conclusion of the KHL season/playoffs next season the Caps can sign Kuznetsov and get him into their lineup?

Yes. That would also blow the first year of the ELC so he'd be that much closer to cashing in on a second contract.
