Sushi

I seem to recall reading (over 5 years ago) that when Sushi left the Wild let him out of his contract on the condition that they would retain his rights if he came back. A bunch of people bought customized Sushi jerseys during his brief stay, and you'd see them around games for years after that (I guess it could just as well have said "Sucker" as "Sushinsky" on the back. Associate General Manager Jaromir Jagr is responsible for most NY Rangers personnel decisions while Glen Sather enjoys semi-retirement in Palm Springs, so if #68 wants him, I'd expect he'll end up there.

Wasn't it homesickness that drove him away the first time - I seem to remember he and his wife and/or kid not being able to adapt to Minnesota, and away they ran.

I don't think the Wild were displeased with his play.

I could get banned or warned for "racist" remarks here, but I would stay away from Russian players myself. Certainly not all of them, but enough of them have been rather "trying", to say the least, when it comes to contracts...

He was a troublemaker who refused to play the position he was asked to play here. I highly doubt we will take him back.

That's what I thought - The guy had 7 goals in 30 games, which for that year 1 Wild team was pretty good. Good enough for Russian national team is probably good enough for the Wild.

This season?

Not only Malkin, but Morozov too. Those two at least, have been way better than him. And are having playoff success so far as well, especially Morozov.

Sushsinky >>> Morozov.


1. Sushinsky played in the Olympics, Morozov wasn't asked.
2. Morozov has inflated stats due to playing on one of the best line in the league: Zaripov-Zvinovjev-Morozov who are all top 7 in scoring.
3. Despite putting up worse numbers, Sushsinsky remains a better offensive and overall player than Morozov who can't play D for the life of him.


Mozyakin may lead the RSL in scoring, but nobody is proclaiming him better than Malkin. If I had to give a top 10 of players in the RSL teams should look to bring over for immediate impact:

1. Malkin
2. Sushinsky
3. Korolyuk
4. Morozov
5. Zvinovjev
6. Mikhnov
7. Taratukhin
8. Mozyakin
9. Kharitonov
10. Chistov

Hm: Grigorenko, Kaigorodov, Antipov, But, Tkachenko.

Silly comment. Sushinsky's coach was also the Russian coach.
Dinamo had 3 players picked to play in the Olympics, a 7th placed team that lost in round 1.
No Kazan players were picked. And Morozov declared the taxi squad so wasn0t asked when the injures hit the team..
His stats are inflated? He's the best player on that line.
Please.
Also, Morozov spent most of his career in Pittsburgh prior to the 01-02 season on the Pens' checking line. Not really a defensive stallwart, but decent in his own zone.
I won't play the stats card, it's too easy. But his team, with no Russian players on the Olympic team, is coasting into teh RSL finals. Sushinsky's team, and Krikunov's, with 3 Olympians (well, Bykov was picked originally) showed nothing in the playoffs.

Sushinsky could be one the top players on the Wild next season.

I think he should have stayed in the NHL when he was here the first time, when he was 26. Now he is older and gonna be 32. But why come back after not being in NHL or north american hockey since 2000-01 season??

He plays a great season in Russia. He deserves to be in the NHL.
And on your roster he should be on one of the top 2 lines. Good aquisition if he comes...

This move doesn't surprise me too much.

Being young, in a different country, on a brand new expansion franchise, with a stickler for a coach and no one to really talk to or even relate to, no wonder this stuff doesn't happen much more. He had to see if the grass was greener back home in the RSL. He's had some success, grew a little and matured...probably thought he was ready to take another stab at it.

I for one would welcome him back.

I think Morozov will be MVP this year, hands down, but Max is the best overall RSL player of the last 5 years by far.

Really now, me personally?

Well to clarify, Sushsinky is an offensive player very fitting of the "sniper" category. Such is his general role for his current (former) club Dynamo Moscow. However, despite his smallish size... Sushinsky can play defense and does kill penalties.

I am not firmiliar with his role in Minnesota way back when.

He was late for the training camp among RSL players for the World Championships on account of holding talks with SKA St. Petersburg. I am a little doubtful he will play for SKA, especially after professing his descision to come to the NHL.

His SKA contract negotiating is just a game to bring up his potential salary in another team. At the same time, I easily imagine him playing for SKA. St.-Petersburg is his motherland, and he started his career there.

Personally, I don't see him in Minnesota. Not his type of hockey-style.

Also, he can play center if needed.

I'd rather have Morozov over Sushinsky.

Russia will sign the IIHF-NHL transfer agreement on June 16th.
