I hope Slava will stay in the NHL - he has started doing well, so his return to Russia makes no sense (at least for me). The only reason can be this high rate of concussions, if he's afraid of it.

Do they Slovaks want great Tipsport Extraleague?

Yes, they do. But when some player has the option to play in NHL, KHL or Elitserien, they wish him good luck and are happy for him.

Good luck with that Even if Voynov accepted coming back to the KHL, Traktor couldn't offer enough money even for Dadonov, so where would they get 3-4 millions per year Voynov would ask for?

I doubt that Traktor couldn't afford Dadonov. Most likely they thought his price was lower, than he was asking for, same with Dugin, Burdasov. The fact that dumb idiots over-pay for players thinking just about today and not the future is killing the sports.

Substitute Voynov with Gonchar and that article looks plausible. Anyway, Voynov will have a nice payday in summer, that's for sure.

Not necessarily, he's an RFA if I'm not mistaken , so he should get a low deal.

Anyways I doubt he would spend years in the minors and finally establish himself as a top player in the NHL only to go back home. It would be nice but I don't see it.

Unless traktor offers something ludicrous, we all know they can't.

Fact is as long as there are dumb idiots there will be ones who would overpay for Voynov too. Traktor would lose Voynov to SKA or Avangard the same way they lost Dadonov and Burdasov. I'm not saying it was very smart for SKA to offer Burdasov money he's obviously not worthy of yet but they did. And Voynov is no Burdasov, he's actually worth A LOT of money.

As we've seen being an RFA doesn't prevent you from getting a lucrative deal anymore, especially than Voynov has "******* you, I'm going home" card up his sleeve. After season like this he'll sign long-term for no less than 4 millions per year

Assuming this means J-M Aaltonen, I wouldn't count on him playing in KHL as a sure thing. After Sweden's EHT tournament where he shined, he said NHL is still his goal. If he puts up the kind of performances at the Worlds, he's sure to get a contract offer.

With all due respect to Aaltonen and I really like him but there's no way he's an NHL caliber player.

Up until last season most of Finnish hockey fans thought so too. His performances for the national team this season have made many of us rethink that assumption.

С'mon it's just unrealistic he would even consider returning. I mean, it's the same with Kuznetsov. With Washington struggling and Kuzya doing good in the KHL. Why should he leave now? Voynov is having a breakout year in LA.Why would he just pack it up and leave?

But his off the ice moves with Traktor make him look like a head case. Is he?

Umm...he had an eye injury. Ok, eyes are in the head = headcase.

It was more like an unfortunate freak injury rather than some headcase-ish behavior.

It would be fantastic to see Holos in Lokomotiv. The guy was a beast at every WC for Norway logging ~30 minutes every game against top lines. I still have the feeling that he was mismanaged by the Avalanche.

Maybe, but it's amazingly hard to stick in the NHL as a d-men, especially, if you are not prepared to ride the bus in AHL for couple of years until opportunity arrives. I understand why Europeans bolt, but there is part of me, that wants to see all the best players in one league, and feels sad that this opportunity fumbles at the feet of Engelland of this world.

On the other hand, he's 1,80 m. And on the bottom pairing in the NHL everyone would rather have size than offensive touch.
