Not that he had one but, I think he just kissed the possibility of an NHL career 'Good Bye'! Who'll take him seriously?

Pay month to month. That's one way to keep players on their toes. Other than raising the urinals.

Something young Komrade should clearly understand...

The ones leaving N. America usually land properly.

Because in Russia, the role model is the richest, most selfish guy. Not like the US or Canada.

He's 21. He's projecting about what he'll do 9 years from now. Like he really knows. He doesn't even know what he's doing tonight. Next thread please.

My thoughts exactly. If the Buttgoblin is still in charge there might not be an NHL in 9 years.

...or even before the 2018 Olympucks.

If he's got the skill, a lot of GMs will. For example, 3 GMs in the past year signed a 40 year old Jaromir Jagr. Obviously not a long-term interest.
