    Also means SKA will try harder to sign Shestyorkin to a new contract next year when it’s up. (probably)

    Anyone got a stream for this one?

    BTW, hope its OK to discuss streams on a game like this. Norway Russia B before the WCHs. Would anyone even take the rights if they got it for free?

    It will be on Norwegian TV (just checkedm it's on TV2 Sportskanalen), but I guess they didn't have to break the bank to acquire them. If you have a Norwegian friend with a TV2 Sumo account, that's also an alternative.

    It sounds like he's going to the Oilers instead.

    This is great news for Shesty. He'll be the #1 for them next season. He can come over the next year after getting a full season as a starter under his belt in a professional league.

    Maybe this is somewhat useless information but I'll post it anyways. I noticed that the Rsngers official Instagram account started following Shestyorkin's Instagram page maybe a week ago.

    Interesting timing, will they somehow get him over now? Or have they started courting him, making sure he doesn't sign another deal with SKA?

    Former seems unlikely. You'd have to hope that they are in fairly regular contact with him though. Make him feel wanted in NYC.

    They can't bring him over now, because the buy-out window has already passed. He can't buy out the last year of his KHL contract.

    Yeah, NHL retreats routinely get preferential treatment even when they leave NA without any kind of notable success (or worse).

    Putting him in raw against Sweden would be a little bit too much. Remember, how Canadian goaltenders faired against Finland yesterday. Just asking for trouble. So it´s probably a start against Slovakia. He should start against both, though.

    Let’s not come up with excuses just yet. His role here is as #2 goalie so it is what it is. Koshechkin has been very average so far, so Shesty just need to take care of his part and let the chips fall before elimination round starts.

    I am going out on a limb here, but I would like to claim that we without competition have the best back-up goaltender outside the NHL!? ;)

    140 minutes without giving up a goal is apparantly a WCH record for Soviet/Russian goaltenders that now is owned by Shesty.

    Since then Nilsson said that he’s not looking to get out of his contract and relocate to KHL just yet.

    We will be having Igor Eronko on my radio show Off the Post tonight at 5:30. We will be discussing Shestyorkin coming over as well as his Islander highly touted counter part Ilya Sorokin. Tune in/call up! 631-676-2968. We will also be asking him about Ilya Kovalchuk

    Just to update here, Magnus Hellberg has been traded to SKA. He'll compete with Igor for playing time.

    New interview from the SKA and Russia goalie coach. He did one last week as well that I posted in the World Championship thread, but here's what he said this week.

    Two interesting things here:

    1. Sounds like he definitely intends to come over after next season. Assumed that was the case but always good to see more to suggest its happening.

    2. We'll have a recent guy we have some idea of the NHL skillset for playing in the same system with the same supporting cast to compare Igor with. If Hellberg puts up similarly eye popping numbers, I'm personally going to be a bit concerned but I doubt he will.

    Koskinen put up somewhat similar, albeit worse numbers over two years, and now he's getting a chance to be the backup in Edmonton. He didn't initially make it it in the NHL. He went back to Europe, and improved. Thats what Hellberg's trying to do now, and I think he's doing well. I wouldn't be surprised if in 2-3 seasons he's back in the NHL. I also don't think he's that bad. He was a good AHL starter. Its not that inconceivable that he could improve some and be an NHL back up 3-4 years later.

    Shestyorkin also obviously isn't an elite NHL starter already or anything like that. Its not that unlikely that he might not be significantly better right now than a fringe NHL guy. But he's also 4.5 years younger than Hellberg, and there's no regular NHL goalie younger than him, so that has to be kept it in mind.
