good for voynov. This should give him the leverage he needs to get a solid 3M+ RFA deal. I still think he stays in LA, but now he has leverage.

I don't see a guy who came over at 18, played 5 years in the AHL, then instead of returning to Russia during the lockout, rejoined the AHL before going back to the NHL at the lockouts end signing a deal in Russia when he is playing so well in the NHL.

Great news for Voynov, bad news for LA.

The idea is that Voynov had a long and hard development curve, played in AHL for a long time to polish his game to make it to NHL. Now it would be rather strange to go back when he finally found his place in NHL.

Voynov played in Manchester during the lockout instead of going to the KHL.

Would be heartbreaking if he left, but he seems committed to staying in the NHL.

Big difference in a team wanting to sign a player and a player signing. This will give him some negotiating points though.

This, story makes absolutely no sense. He would have played in the KHL during the lockout if he had any of intention going back.

he could not, no permission of LA. Big different if he wated to play KHL during lockout and if LA agreed. The same different if Traktor want to sing him and if want. I would not use lockout as argument here.

Oh those silly Russian news reports. Hey remember when Voynov was supposed to head to the KHL during the lockout but instead opted to stay in North America and play in the AHL? The Kings will lock him up. No Voynov for you.

If I remember right, Voynov was in contact with Traktor to play KHL during the lockout but then L.A. assigned him to the AHL. He was legally prohibited from playing in the KHL.

To offer a counter-point to the "he toiled in the AHL and made the NHL on his terms, why would he return to Russia?" argument, I give you Alexander Radulov. Radulov came to North America at the same age as Voynov, became a full-time NHLer at about the same age (Both were 22 when they made the NHL and didn't go back down again), and Radulov went back to Russia at 22, while Voynov is now 23. So I wouldn't dismiss this out-of-hand, just yet.

It's unlikely that Voynov goes back to Russia, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.

I recall hearing that Russian players would be remaining in the KHL after the lockout and that Malkin was to sign a contract that would keep him there as well. What happened to those rumors? Must I really bring up all the silly things these Russian reports get wrong, every single time?

He was legally prevented from playing in the KHL by LA.

But yeah 5 years is a long time to toil in the AHL. If things aren't set in stone for him in LA for next year, I see him having a 75% chance of signing in the KHL.

He's completely set in stone, likely to get a contract anywhere between 3 and 4 million IMO.

nobody said this crap about Malkin, even russian media. I recommend you to re-read them again. There was only written about players with no-NHL contract like Andrei Kostitsyn who is still in KHL, or Kulikov and OReilly who did not come back to NHL immidiatelly but played KHL and later terminated contracts.

Your russian insiders seems to be uninformed. This info about Voynov is another story. I dont say he will sign with Traktor, just that the source of info is reliable.

Not going to happen. The kid didn't bust his ass to go to the KHL. He will get the contract he deserves from the Kings.

Voynov did say he really dislikes living in America.

I would give him 6-8 mil, that is Traktor able to pay him if compared to NHL with high taxes
