You can even see with Ak-Bars that the players that could actually make the roster; Burmistrov, Bocharov, Golubev, Petrov, etc... would have easily been protected by the 2-3 protection picks. And if that's not enough, which it is, then you even have your draft picks on top that you can use.

Besides, I'm more than certain that you can pick up better prospects from independent schools with the draft than you would be losing. So its a win win.

More importantly it creates parity in the league. I am convinced that the Ak-Bars prospect snatched up by donbass will develop better there instead of being the 12th retained player and next year back to the same old same old.
Its funny this is coming from Ak-Bars as well since they are the most stingy team with letting prospects play on the roster.
In this team, an elite prospect is guaranteed to ride the pine and maybe get 2 minutes of playing time, in front of a half empty arena if he's lucky. The year after he will probably be sent to Khanti Mansii anyway. The rest of the prospects will be leaving hockey or fighting for spots with Neftyanik, who's school graduates would also like those spots.

The only problem with the draft I have is physical geographical location. A 17 year old should not have to be uprooted from Moscow and sent to Yekaterinburg to just play Junior. Thats nuts. In the NHL, only if a junior player signs with the drafting team and goes to the AHL/NHL then its OK to move.

This KHL draft is like saying a junior can be drafted from the Halifax Mooseheads in the QMJHL and then sent to play with the Kamloops Blazers in the WHL at 17. That is ridiculous, unless the MHL teams had a 2-way contract of somekind.

Maybe the players could stay with the previous MHL team and are only allowed to be moved if its to the new teams VHL(or farm) or a KHL call up. This might get messy though.
Great post. That is all.

In reality this happens. Drafted players can refuse KHL contract with a club which drafted him and can choose whatever MHL he wants. For example, F Khatsei - pupil of Spartak, drafted by Atlant, played MHL for Spartak after draft (I think year or two), Spartak required his KHL rights from Atlant a few days ago (so he will get a chance in KHL next season)
