Lee was not free agent as I know. He had contract in Sweden for next season. Maybe he had out clause, that he can leave SEL for free. Dont know.

They've also signed Jan Kovar from Plzen and now have 5 foreigners meaning they don't expect Zuccarello back.
Cal O'Reilly can move to NHL for free according his contract
so they can get Zuccarello back

But still, I wouldn't have much problems with it if the team that was buying Nichushkin wasn't Dynamo. Dynamo doesn't have any superstar in its roster, no player receives 2 millions per season. It's policy is to have an even team with a bit above average players that are not overpayed. And with this kind of policy they got 2 cups straight and in this season with a clear superiority over any other team. And then buying 18-old player for 10 millions and making him the most well-payed player in the team is really strange. There is information that Znaroks, the head coach of Dynamo, is against paying so much to Nichushkin because it would be just unfair to the club veterans who are winning a cup after a cup.

Not to mention that Nichushkin for 90% will go to NHL after a season or two.

Others - Kronwall, Niskala, Hietanen, Maenpaa, Jaakola - were as successful. Obviously he's not going to be a PPG player but 30 points - no problem. I think he was the best D on the market without a shadow of doubt so it was a great job by Magnitka to get him.



How many hockey transfers of this kind - where 18 year old supertalent is being transfered from one team which just made it to the Cup finals to the other - do you know about?
pardon my langauge? how did the guy look last year? lol He looked good on a very weak team. NIskala? not good. Of these Kronwall is the only guy who's able to do this for two years straight being a top level player.

Can anyone really explain why Traktor is giving Nichushkin away so suddenly? And to freakin' Dynamo of all teams? To a team which after first cup didn't even bother to add anyone for next campaign (locked out players aside). It just doesn't make sense to dish out 12 million on the kid. WTF?

Also what about that supposed 2M contract? Does that means that Dynamo has to sign him now in first place, which would imply that Nichushkin now doesn't have a valid contract anymore?

They are not paying it to him but FOR him. As I understand a term trade his contract remains the same pretty cheap one he sign at the beginning of the season.

The guy scored 4 points in 7 games for Lev. When it comes to scoring - you give him minutes, he makes things happen. Sample size for bad Maenpaa's play is even smaller than for the good one. And since we were talking about scoring, he came to Amur having scored 18 points in Sweden the year before and he blew these expectations away on the team which managed to make the playoffs and led the conference at one point.

What about Niskala? After moving from Elitserien he had two 10+ goals, 30+ points seasons to go with +29 rating. He absolutely delivered what was expected from him and if somebody's expectations were even bigger.. Well, that's their problem.
Everyone knew about his shortcomings in the defensive zone.

So their scoring definitely wasn't hurt by a move to KHL meaning it will most likely be the case with Lee too and he's good for at least 30 points next season.

If your point was about their defensive game neither of them had such good +/- rating in Sweden. And it's only natural Lee will have some weaknesses but Erik Karlsson does as well, you can't expect shutdown guy to post numbers like that.

SovSport is now reporting Nichushkin is so upset about being traded to Dinamo wo his knowledge, he is leaning toward America *this* summer
Is it true he refused to be interviewed after the U-18 WJC semifinal and even pushed aside the reporter?

As I wrote couple of hours earlier, Nichushkin can lean whichever direction he wants, but if his contract is transferred to Dynamo, he will be playing for them for the next two years. Then again if Nichushkin has to be signed to a new deal, then Dynamo burnt 10M USD just like that.

Well random and not completely thought out things happen in NHL as well, like ROR offer sheet madness as an recent example. But this simply feels so much more grand, because this comes completely out of blue and sounds unbelievably reckless and out of character for all parties involved for reasons explained in my first post about this issue. My brain can't comprehend this trade.

I agree that the Nichushkin to Dynamo rumors don't make any sense. 10 million? please

10 million is the least weird thing. If it was SKA, and there would of been some rumors about this transfer in air for weeks, I'd be fine with it. But Dynamo splashing such cash is completely uncharacteristic.

No, rumors say that Dynamo really wants to pay him 2 millions. I know that 10 millions is for Traktor not for Nichuskin.

If they want to pay him that much it means that they have to resign him to a new contract. So they are risking 10 millions to get a player who may not want to sign with them at all and choose the NHL instead. Who would do that?

Or, the other possibility, that Nichushkin's contract is traded but Dynamo want to give him a raise just out of niceness and this one leaves me scratching the head too.

So either that rumor is false or seriously weird things are happening.

Nichushkin for a 10 mil makes a lot of sense to me especially if they can afford it. The kid is a playoff performer and not a liability whatsoever, even with playing high minutes. Something you can't say about any 18 year old. With khl's dumb rules of having to ice two u-20 players each game iirc nichushkin is literally the best player in the league for that. Many teams hate this rule and end up benching valuable prospects because of it and frankly I think it regresses their development. In that sense dynamo can develop that young player in the vhl while having a strong forward replace him. It will cost them 6 mil/year and although that is a steep price it is worth having that u20 spot filled perfectly, the ability to develop the other prospects, having a generational prospect on your roster, one of the most exciting players in the league, and of course all the publicity and viewers! Obviously that money is necessary to bring a hometown Chelyabinsk player over that's not from your school or anything. How much do you think it would have cost to get Magnitogorsk to give up young 18-20 yr old Malkin to another rsl team?
