FYI, Vogel said he was told the dates for the Russians are not set yet because of the lack of Russian participation with the IIHF agreement, so depending on when that gets done and what gets decided, teams could have longer to sign Russian players

Drake - I just read your Yunkov write-up; it is not clear to me that these pre new CBA guys will re-enter the draft - I thought they would become free agents; I will try to research this; also, what I heard is that they may get an extra year to sign the guys if Russia signs the IIHF agreement this summer, but no one really knows anything other than that the expiration dates don't apply to them right now.
on a sidenote, I met Yunkov's agent at the draft and had an extended conversation with him so I have tried to follow Yunkov's progress; nice write-up
Back to the Bears' game, my audio died in the last minute; what happened with the too many men on ice and the fight?
