The rangers board write up on Turris has me thinking. He's, apperently, been playing significant minutes, how much of his scoring is a result of receiving optimal minutes a la schremp when he played Jr his final year?

A post from Buffalo concerning Russian players who don't sign after 2 years.

Originally Posted by Slitty
Well NHL teams now only have two years to convince their draftees to sign a contract. Considering that most Russian players do not wish to play in the AHL and that the typical prospect doesn't become remotely NHL ready until his early twenties, I suspect taking 17 and 18 year olds out of Russia in the early rounds might just become a rarity reserved for the truly elite. Even if a transfer agreement is signed, convincing a player who receives steady time and wage in the RSL to come to North America without promising him a spot in the NHL might prove very difficult. And just how adventuous would, for example, Ottawa feel in terms of drafting Russians in the future if they lose the entirety of their existing wealth of Russian prospects?

Buffalo:
The 2 year signing deadline for European players was contingent on an IIHF transfer agreement being signed. In the absence of an agreement, the rights status of European draftees is controlled by the terms of the previous CBA. Since Russia didn't sign the transfer agreement NHL teams may apply to have their Russian draft choices who are unsigned after 2 years designated as "defected free agents", essentially holding their rights indefinitely. That's how the Buffalo Sabres have kept the rights to Artem Kryukov. It's disappointing that the hockey media has virtually ignored this subject when there's so many fans interested in the status of their team's prospects. It'll get even more confusing regarding the status of players drafted from the 6 countries who signed the current transfer agreement if a new one isn't signed this summer.

After looking at the overall standings, even though Anaheim is currently in the 27th overall draft position, they are only 4pts away from falling down to 21st, currently occupied the Pens. So hopefully the Ducks struggle these last few games of the season and drop a few spots, and then get eliminated in the first round. If that occurs, and a couple of teams who finished below the Ducks make it to the conference finals, there is a chance we could draft around the 20th-23rd position in the first round

Two weeks and we will have all of our draft positions will be set. (April 10) Then we can really torture ourselves as to which players to take.
