Tentative Russian NHL Deal

After a year with no Russia- NHL player transfer deal, a tentative deal has been struck. During this year, there was no legal framework for player transfers between the leagues. This lead to lawsuits over Alexander Semin and Alexander Ovechkin. This was expected to lead to problems with the transfer of Evgeni Malkin to Pittsburgh.

The deal is expected to have increased transfer fees when players leave the Russian league to join the NHL. Exactly how much the increase will be is still unknown. The individual Russian teams must sign on to this deal, so it is not a given that this story is complete.

Here is TSN's story on this subject.

I wrote an entire post to you on my site.

It's been fun. See ya.
