According to the CBA, he can make as much as $850k/year, and as a 19 year old his ELC is for a max. of three years. If he is snet to the minors, his AHL compensation is $62.5k. ELC are automatically deemed to be two-way contracts.
Can earn up to $62,500 in the AHL. It's not automatic - because every Blackhawks draft pick who's signed post-lockout has their AHL salary set at $50,000.
Every one of them - yes, including Jonathan Toews.
As JAS has pointed out, you may be over-valuing our prospect just a bit. Cherp & Ani are at best 3 years away and at worst long-term projects. Al may never play an NHL game for us, and Bourret has shown flourishes, but is still a cast-off from a farm system that seems starved for prospects.
Thanks for that clarification. I was just quoting the max #s from the CBA.
Artem is at least a full year in the minors away. MINIMUM.
Dubinsky would be given first shot.
id move cullen, to give Dubinsky 3rd line ice time in the NHL and Anisimov 1st line ice time in Hartford. On a different note; will Bruce Graham be back in the ECHL or full time with the Pack? He had good stats in his last year in the ECHL.
The top 5 is as good as anyone's but what probably makes the Rangers system the best is the tremendous depth. I've voting for guys at #14 on the prospect poll that would be top 5 with other teams.
Can't wait to see Anisimov on the pro level. And for those of you worried about where he might fit if he (or Cherepanov) explodes... other than the new deals for Drury and Gomez, what stands in their way? Seriously. So, it's two years from now and both are ready... what's the problem? Drury moves over if necessary, Gomez slides down to #2 center if necessary, and... all the players we want in the lineup are in the lineup. Next "problem".
"I'll be in Omsk at least another year anyway, so I wouldn't be going anywhere even if I were drafted higher. It's important that I get physically stronger, and help Avangard win the gold medal (1st place) in the Russian Super League. Last season we were eliminated by the eventual champion, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, but this year we'll try to bring the gold back to Omsk.
Not another website, not some rumor on the Internet - it's the same place I get all of my info on this kind of stuff (and the one I eventually tie all my salary and cap info to) ... an official NHL file.
Artem Anisomov, who impressed Ken Gernander at the Rangers prospect camp a week ago ("Anisimov definitely has a nose for the net. With his skills, handwise and puckwise, he was a legitimate first round pick last year"), has signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Rangers, according to some reports-- a transaction that has yet to be confirmed.
However, the Russian site Чемпионат.ру posted their preview today of this year's Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team (the RSL team that Anisimov plays for), and the article includes an encouraging quote from Anisimov.
