New RFA rule in CBA (Never draft a Russian)

http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/2013...te-goin/12416/
Quote:
One other thing: O’Reilly can become an unrestricted free agent after NEXT season if he doesn’t sign with the Avs by then. Right now, the Avs are saying they won’t trade him at all this season, despite a TON of teams around the league calling about him. But obviously, if things remain at an impasse with the Avs on a contract, they will have to trade him at some point before next season, unless they want to lose a young, valuable, two-way center who plays with heart and leadership for nothing.
So this means the new CBA if a player as a RFA does not play in the NHL for two years he becomes a UFA

Example
Yakupov plays his ELC in Edmonton 18,19,20
Gets a big two year KHL offer and takes it 21,22
UFA in NHL at 23

I think this is a dangerous rule and just gives more power to the players.

Considering one of the main reasons why there was a lockout was owners unhappy about contracts getting too big too fast I am very happy that Colorado is refusing to play ball with O'Reilly.
Great player but if Colorado is not comfortable offering him what he wants well he's going to have to deal with it.

On topic: I can see this affecting Russian players who are a bit too eager. Hopefully it doesn't go too far because I'd rather have an NHL with lots of players from lots of places, Russians are awesome even if a bit enigmatic at times

How in the H*** did Bettman and his boys miss that! I really skews things potentially for those guys that are looking only at the $$$ or the situation.

I'm sure teams will be itching to pay big bucks for guys who haven't played for 2 seasons.

I think it's a personal decision by the player and doesn't have to do with race, country or creed. I'm going to have to give you a personal infraction Fuhr. If you get two more you've been added to my ignore list.

Xenophobism isn't tolerated by myself or my family and I will fight for its abolition.

Yes? KHL exists in Russia, and provides native Russian an excellent opportunity to make a living comparable to the NHL. Would be the case if similar leagues existed in Sweden and other countries.

Well, it does based on the fact a Russian is more likely to see a 2 year hiatus in the KHL as something they have no problem doing (and may in fact embrace it like Radulov has), where as a North American might be less inclined to literally spend two years in Siberia. See how some faired during the lockout to get an idea. Other Europeans might also consider it, although Russians would be the most likely I would think. Of course, then there are guys like O'Reilly who found himself over there already, but is almost half way home. Still, I doubt he is in the KHL come March, let alone next season.

I actually see this being more of a benefit to the mid-tier guys than a Yakupov, who has been in North America for 3 years already. The guys who are offered a two-way deal post ETC will likely look at other options, and this would be a good option for some, versus being stuck under the RFA rules with little leverage. The top RFA's always have a bit more leverage and I doubt many will go to this extreme(competitive pressure, fan outrage, offer sheets etc.).

this isnt a new rule.

RFA's always had the option of just waiting until they gained UFA eligibility through age. No one does it though because that requires leaving and going to europe for much less money*.



*unless you are a russian star player.

I'm pretty sure they only lowered UFA down to 25 in the negotiations. ROR probably won't hit UFA for four years if he fails to play another game in the NHL.

Shouldn't affect us so long as the Murray's are here. They don't do Russian in round 1!

What? Fuhr read one article and took it as gospel, while expounding on its merits in other areas it proved to be wrong?

Why I never!

I have a conspiracy theory that this new fuhr is not the same guy that was previously posting. Can't prove it, but the attitude and writing style seems different since his miraculous return.

On an unrelated note...anyone watch homeland? that show is awesome.

Creepy, account hijacking. Usually Fuhr has a truckload of things to say, this is definitely not the old fufu.

Just because he posted it doesn't mean he believes it or takes it as gospel. Don't jump to conclusions. He may just have posted it for interest sake.

We can start drafting Russians again.
