..an '08 3rd rounder from NYR in lieu of not being able to (or not wanting to) sign Jan Marek who came over in the Avery deal. The writer of this blog is the Kings beat writer, so it's legit.

thanks.

i can't blame him because he's obviously very comfortable in his situation. but it seems marek might also be too proud of his own abilities to even think about coming over unless he's blown away by an offer. makes the trade for avery that much better looking.

Wasn't that the very same demands he made of the Rangers? I seem to remember reading that he wanted a One-Way deal and a very expensive contract, to come here.

Yep.I read Lombardi met with Marek in the Czech Republic but Marek wanted a one way deal.Last fall,Don Maloney and Cameron Hope flew all the way to Russia to watch Marek play and he came up with the flu.A few months later,the Rangers traded his rights to LA

Marek wants to play in the NHL or nothing. Kinda hard to blame him, he's a star in Russia, he can afford to be picky.

I don't doubt he could probably be a PPG player in the NHL, but its risky to hand him a 1-way deal. I wouldn't be surprised if some team offers it to him, though. He is lighting up the RSL.

He wants to be a big fish in a little pond, thats fine, kudos.

As for the 3rd rounder, meh, we'll replace it somehow, Slats & co have been good like that.

I'm not sure about that. RSL has surpassed AHL. In the next 5 year RSL will surpass NHL. Their draft will beat ours.

I doubt he could be a PPG player in the NHL. I doubt it very much. He wasn't that much better than Prucha, if any better, when they were both in the Czech Republic.

Not in terms of style, but in terms of career arc, Marek reminds me very much of Pavel Patera.

I wouldn't put money on that. The RSL is getting better, sure, but the NHL will continue to outshine it by some margin for a long while to come.

Even if the RSL gets the cream of the crop of Russian draftees, the league will remain less attractive to Western Europeans than the NHL. You can sign a huge contract in Russia, but you can't always guarantee that it'll be honoured. Teams in Russia have had trouble paying their players too often, too recently, for the RSL to be considered a superior choice for the world's best players.

Overall, the best hockey players in the world still come out of Canada anyway.

RSL better than the NHL?

I dunno about that. The NHL will still attract all the N.A. players, its share of Russian players, as well as Swedish, Finnish and others who may rather live in the U.S. or Canada than in Russia. With all that, it'll be tough to surpass the NHL.

The RSL will never be able to surpass the NHL because of the fact that it doesn't have the money to offer up that the NHL has, and most North American players will rather stay in the NHL. Plus, the RSL has some ties to the Russian Mafia, and that strays away some talent... it's a big reason why a lot of players are scared to defect from there. Malkin had to hide... the Fedorov and Bure fiascos... even Zherdev's problems.
