I doubt he goes, but does the fact that he is an RFA make it harder for him to sign in Traktor than if he was a UFA?

Yeah, how about no. He's a RFA that will get a nice raise playing top 4 minutes for a damn good hockey team in California, where every game there will be 18.000 people cheering.
According to Lombardi, the kid has offers every year from the KHL and said NO to all of them. Now that he's playing big numbers he's gonna go back to Russia to play for a team with a 5000 attendance?

75%?

You have no idea what you are talking about.

Lombardi does not tell 100% truth. Voynov had contract with LA, no chance he came to Traktor in previous seasons (MOU), the same lockout. It is only PR staff from Lombardi, I dont believe him a single word.

Now he will be free agent which is another story.

Good luck to find a single game in Traktor Arena which will have 5000 attendance. No chance I would say.

Even if he wasn't legally forbidden, the fact is that Voynov didn't even ask to go back.

I'm just saying I would be shocked if Voynov went back to the KHL considering he didn't even appear to try to when there was a lockout. And I believe since he's still in his ELC, he was only getting paid $65,000.

Regardless, I don't think it changes anything.

The article says that Voynov was assigned to the AHL (legally prohibited from playing in KHL)....but Lombardi was impressed that he decided to stick it out, not complain, nor request to go to the KHL after he was assigned.

Saying that, I don't see him going back to the KHL anytime soon.

Hey folks I always doubt the validity of Russian news reports, but this one does have merit, as remember we will be entering an Olympic year and if any prospective Russian Olympians are available to sign to get them back and playing with the NT with the carrot of possibly making the Olympic team, then that's a real big carrot. And his agent is doing his job...

That was actually an official quote from the Traktor exec there.

I think Voynov could be angry at LA for not letting him go home during the lockout.

No. Same as Tarasenko and StL, he was KHL RFA. In KHL/NHL agreement FA is FA.

What's up with all these Russian posters who come out in full force. Is that league so **** poor ?

They can have him if he wants too much money.

And here's another interesting tibit, the MOU between the NHL and KHL expires this June. If it is not renewed and if the KHL wishes, it may sign whatever player they want regardless of contractual status. But no sense going for the nuclear option half a year out from the Sochi Olympics. But things will get interesting between the two leagues for sure going forward.

Hundreds of thousands of people take jobs in less than desireable locations for more money. Why would the NHL be different?

LA offers 3.5
Traktor offers 7

bold part is a point.

This MOU has been renewed every offseason. Not a big deal

My point is that Olympic gold for the Russian Ice Hockey Federation and by extension the KHL trumps any MOU with the NHL....if push comes to shove and the KHL believes it is in their best interest to forgo an extension of the MOU to better their chances of winning in Sochi, then that's what they will do. Do I think it will come to that? No, most likely not... but the pressure is on for the Russians to win that ever elusive gold medal on home ice.

I dunno. I think Voynov really likes home.



The Manchester Monarchs are located in the State of New Hampshire, what's your impression of this area?
-Actually it's terrible, speaking bluntly, it's a village that's removed from civilization, especially when compared to Boston - about 30 km away.
Do you prefer McDonald's and similar establishments to homemade cooking?
-I eat at home mostly because my girlfriend is an excellent cook. Although they make great steak in the United States, you can't eat anything else.
Do you miss your homeland?
-Of course, I have told myself that I can only live in Russia.
Why?
It's impossible to live in another country, particularly in the U.S., that's for sure!
What particularly is the problem?
-The people. I don't get them, they don't get me, and even if I were to talk better English I think that we wouldn't see eye to eye.
Do you expect to holiday in the U.S.?
If I go, it's only to the Dominican Republic. You can't catch anything in the U.S. In the City of Angels you have the ocean and beach, it all appears beautiful but it's like lying down in Shershnya.

Seems like he's sacrificed a lot to get where he is in the NHL.

Are you his agent? No way he's worth that much right now.

It just doesn't make sense for him to go back now... A couple years ago when he was knocking on the door with no room in the NHL, sure, but now? No way. He'll be making at least $3 million, probably more. Anything below $5 million and he is worth it, in my opinion.

What a ridiculous interview. If the U.S. is so bad he can go back home and fly on crappy planes with negligent mechanics and pilots, and have to pray everytime he travels that it's not his last time. Hopefully he doesn't need an ambulance or defibrillator too.

Money talks, it depends on how loudly for some. He's already won a Stanley Cup, he now has a shot at making a ton of money, tax free, back at home.

Wow, dude could you sound more bitter?

It's his decision in the end. And I am sure the KHL has upgraded everything since then for their facilities, etc, if they didn't, I doubt players would have signed there during the lockout. So there's that to think about as well.

Yeah poor kid.

I also heard him say he wanted his name being scratched of the Stanley Cup. I expect him to join Traktor Chelyabinsk anytime soon.
