Canucks close to signing Russian prospect

Canucks GM Mike Gillis was on the radio last night and he mentioned they were close to signing their top Russian prospect...he actually wouldn't specify who the player was, only to narrow it down to one of: Kablukov (very unlikely IMO), Koltsov (possible) or Shirokov (most likely IMO). So, a question to anyone living in, or with ties to Russia...... Any rumors floating around over there?

thanks in advance...

Shirokov is on a legal battle to leave CSKA. But I guess it's because he wants to join Bykov in Ufa, rather than going to NA. Kirill Koltsov is without team as far as now, but I doubt he'll be back with the Nucks' system. I'm not sure about Kablukov's situation, maybe it's him?
Don't you have any other source?

okay, I've heard Shirokov's rumor now. It's not official though. If anyone knows more, type here.

All the rumours seem to point to Shirokov, but Koltsov would make more sense based on the current Canucks line-up.

Also a recent Omsk article said they weren't in a position to sign Koltsov, and it doesn't look like he's going back to Ufa...

Either way it would be nice to start bringing some Russian players back over to the Pacific North-West.

It's not a rumor anymore. Canucks signed Sergei Shirokov.

I heard that Shirokov is using the agreement with Vancouver as insurance in case he loses his court battle with CSKA and can't go to another KHL club.....that's why he hasn't formally signed yet.

Anyone in Russia know what the happenings are today in the appeal?

We have this update:

Cold war over

Hockey: The annual transfer brou-ha-ha between the NHL and Russia's KHL has reached an unusually swift and amicable conclusion - for now.

The two leagues were on the brink of another contract-poaching frenzy after SKA St. Petersburg accused the Atlanta Thrashers of stealing Canadian defenceman Joel Kwiatkowski from them after he agreed at two-year contract beside the Baltic.

This broke a "gentlemen's agreement" between the two leagues, protested KHL boss (and SKA fan) Alexander Medvedev.

But before the matter could be raised at Wednesday's meeting of the International Ice Hockey Federation, Atlanta dropped their bid to sign the player, claiming it was all a misunderstanding.

Two further cases involving the possible transfers of Denis Parshin and Sergei Shirokov from CSKA to Colorado and Vancouver also seem to have been resolved amicably.

However, Dinamo Moscow's capture of Detroit Red Wing Jiri Hudler - a restricted free agent - could run and run.

The Czech forward comes to Moscow on a two-year contract, while NHL spokesman Frank Brown insists the North American competition believes the player still has contractual obligations in the Motor City.

Hudler's arrival would be a coup for the KHL, which is hoping to establish itself as a competition on a par with the NHL.
Resolved amicably how?

The court in Russia postponed the announcement of the ruling re Parshin and Shirokov until a later date. No one knows when that will be.

Anyone who is Russian speaking care to take a shot at the most recent development and deadlines related to the Parshin and Shirokov? I teried readin today's news translated ut could not really undertand the situation. If the players are not traded will the KHL stand in their way if they desire to sign a contract in North America?

They will be DQed on Mon if the conflict with CSKA is not resolved one way or another. Shirokov said he will go to Vancouver in that case

I don't understand though, would the KHL not protest such a move by Shirokov and attempt to block him from signing a contract with Vancouver? Would the Canucks be allowed by the NHL to sign him? I thought it was a dead issue. Can the KHL (even under a player suspension) block him from playing hockey in Vancouver, or does the suspension itself create the opportunity for him to do so?

I hear that he says he would sign in vancouver and clearly the Canucks are interested in having him, but is it even possible?

Well, it's a Yashin-like affair. A player goes on strike, on top of that there are strong suspicions that he does so simply because he is lured by a richer team (Salavat). IMHO stuff like that (luring) should not be allowed.

But, as I was saying in the other thread, Shirokov's agent might have done all of this to simply get out of the contract the "legal way" to sign with Van.

Really who should be DQed is Peremuzov, my arse.

it's a very dangerous situation, and if one player shall suffer I am ok with it. Becuase if the ruling was for Parshing and Shirokov to be released it would start some major chaos in the league.
