"We signed contract already. He will be in Florida tomorrow,’’ said Kulikov's agent Sergey Bogdan.
No NHL contract is finalized until the player passes a physical, so Kulikov, who said he's already in the United States, is flying to Florida Friday for medical testing. He said he's completly healthy but isn't sure if he will play in the season opener Saturday night.
“I need to get some testing and a couple of practices, but I can’t answer that right now, it’s up to the coaches,’’ Kulikov said via his agent's cell phone.
“I’m excited about the season. I haven’t met the new guys, but I’m definitely excited to meet all the new guys and the old guys, too.’’
Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
I'm surprised Subban is asking for significantly more considering that Fowler and Carlson both signed for around 4 years or more for not more than $4 M and both are comparable. I'd say Subban's been a bit better than both but not $2 M better. Damn sports agents.
