I'm clearly mistaken, but they do use magnetic pucks in some hockey movies, when the stars aren't able to do certain things a talented player can (Tooth Fair, Love Guru).

And now first hatty in his new club. He is again first in the league with 24 goals in 45 games. And a PPG player (46 ponts)... Ah, sorry my bad. He's second (behind Radulov) and not a ppg (21+23 in 44 games).

21+24=44 that's ppg.

Hehe, actually, he's 21+22 in 44 games. So he isn't PPG. But he is second in goals behind only Radulov.

Hat trick playing on 4th line
Didnt like the idea of him being picked up by SKA, but he will get a chance to play in play-offs which is good before World Championship.
SKA will most likely try and keep him after season is over. Hopefully he moves to NA.

No chance! Me and a few friends from STL will be going to Russia after the WC's and kidnap him(Malkin style) before the Russian mafia locks him in a cage and only lets him out to play hockey.

All in jest of course. But the Blues need to do EVERYTHING in their power to get him over here next season!

I got my fingers crossed on them doing it after my dynasty league's draft so I can pick him up as a free agent. I already got what basically should be the first and 3 or fourth pick.

Yakupov, Tarasenko, and Granlund? FTW.

That is a bloody impressive wrist shot. He has a very good chance at being an impact player in the NHL next year IMO (assuming he comes over).

He better come over. Him and Granlund joining the NHL next year would be huge.

Q:When the League launched players like Jaromir Jagr, Alexei Yashin and Alexander Radulov were the faces of the league. Jagr is gone, Yashin's not getting younger and it looks very likely that Radulov will be back in the NHL next year. Who will be the face of the League in the future? What about young players like Vladimir Tarasenko and Evgeny Kuznetsov and what is the League doing to keep them in the KHL?


A:"There are few steps the League is taking to keep it more attractive for those and other players to stay, including special bonuses from the League, like the one Tarasenko is getting. The base contracts are set at a certain level, especially for those drafted in the first round of the [KHL] draft. And the overall level of pay for young players is quite high. But players also have to have a good head on their shoulders to realize that leaving before the Olympics is not to their advantage. It is obvious that after the Olympics their value and influence is going to be a lot higher regardless of who will actually win the Olympics.

"It is too early to say if we will be able to keep Tarasenko [Tarasenko was traded by Sibir to SKA before the trade deadline; Medvedev is also SKA's president]. But I know for a fact that Evgeny Kuznetsov is very seriously considering the possibility of continuing his career with Traktor. As for us, we will create the best for them so that they would stay and play in the KHL, especially because they have already proven how good they are."

This was always known. The KHL wants their players to stay. They will do everything in their power to keep those two.

Yes, but considering it's the president trying to create a good image and he's saying that "it's too early to say," that sounds very encouraging from a Blues stand point. I'm getting giddy about adding him to that team.

Tarasenko is 2+1 in play-off so far. And his 2nd game isn't still over...

Maybe it's just me reading things that aren't there, but this sounds like a subtle suggestion that players leaving before the Olympics might jeopardize their chances of being on the Olympic team.

I am not sure if it is that so much as he is trying to hint that the NHL might not let them play in the Olympics. Hard to say though.

The statement doesn't really fit anything, probably down to his English not being perfect or poor translation.

As TreeSapLlama said, it might be a reference to the fact the NHL is trying to pretend it won't let players go to the Olympics. He might mean that if players don't adapt to the NHL, and lose form then they might struggle to make the cut.

If he is actually suggesting that Tarasenko, Kuznetsov or whoever would harm their national team chances simply because they choose the NHL over the KHL, then it is nonsensical posturing. The hockey gold is the most important aim for Russia in Sochi, there is no chance they will pick players based anything other than ability.

Agreed. It's too important for them to play politics. Total empty threat. Best players will play, period.

Thats what you guys think, but a threat can and may be made behind closed doors. There are enough good players to do without these younger players anyways for the national team. Not saying these guys couldn't make it, but they may be on the outside looking in, and a simple promise or threat could determine where they play.

If true, that's pretty pathetic.

Fortunately it isn't. If the young guys aren't quite ready but stayed at home and better NHL players are available, they want to win more than they want to keep a promise and they won't hesitate to screw over the young guys who stayed. They already stayed! They'll just say to the young guys it's their own fault for not developing.
