    A DC judge threw out Moscow Dynamo suit to enforce a Russian arbiters decision that AO was still under contact in Russia.

    No big surprise with the decision.

    Pretty hard for Dynamo to claim to have "matched" an offer that does not contain the same options and clauses that were contained in the other team's contract.

    The interesting case will be Malkin next season as he does not have an "out" clause and it looks as if the Russians are not signing on the IIHF deal anytime soon. He will cost the Pens alot in transfer fees. Looks to be a replay of the Krutov/Larionov/Makharov deals.

    Was a decision ever reached in regard to the Caps restraining order against Alexander Semin?

    The judge denied the Caps request for injunctions against Semin and Gandler because the issue might be covered by arbitration under the CBA as well as the court's inability to determine Semin's true status in the Russian military.

    More to the point, we're now more than halfway through the season, and the injunction's main goal was to force Semin over for this season. At this point, time has basically passed the issue by.

    The injunction has no bearing on what Semin will do next year. He is not under contract to a RSL team for next season, his two years of mandatory military service are expiring, and he says he wants to come over to the NHL.
