    Klimov isn't getting much time with moscow spartak so its possible he may come over if the time isn't there.

    If only Duba were in an organization other than Pittsburgh...

    He's amazing, but it's doubtful he'll do anything as long as he's a Penguin because of the depth already in North America.

    Soin and Glazachev= I'm going to say not any time soon, if ever. The Preds have tried for two straight seasons to get him over, and he, like many Russians, wants a guaranteed roster spot in the NHL.

    Shafigulin= we need centers, so maybe they can woo him into coming over, if he'll start in Milwaukee. He's played solid in Russia.

    Sulzer= The clock is ticking, but he's still a pretty highly regarded prospect. Hopefully he'll come over, probably to replace Hutchinson whenever he moves up or on in Milwaukee.

    After the last season, his first in Düsseldorf, i thought he would never have a chance in the AHL/NHL.
    But it seems to be, that i was wrong....he is now the best defender in Düsseldorf, has the best +/- and is more offensive than the last year.

    He should really get a chance!!!(he also became a member of the national team)

    I'd say no chance at the moment. With no IIHF or Collective Bargaining Agreement, European players will stay put.
