    Very excited at this, unless this guy busts we’re set for so long now. He has franchise potential. This could propel us to contender status.

    Some people can stop acting like he doesn't exist now.

    I’m just glad this news was released prior to the offseason so Lou knows how to approach it.

    So he can only sign a 1 year ELC. Would be he RFA or UFA after that? Cant find this info anywhere.

    I mean the NHL rules state that you need to be either 27 years old or have seven years of NHL experience to be an UFA after a contract expires.

    So I'm not exactly sure how Sorokin would be an UFA after next season.

    I am not saying he is. I am just asking for confirmation. I didnt know if there was some weird unique rule in this circumstance because the fact that he is limited to a 1 year ELC is also not a commonly seen situation.

    I mean the rules seem pretty clear to me. I can't remember any other KHL players being subjected to special UFA rules in the past.

    I am assuming he is a RFA. Thank God that rumor he was dealt to Chicago is false.

    I'll believe it when I see it. :nod:

    I believe he'd be an RFA still.

    Is Sorokin the new "I'm not believing anything until there are shovels in the ground?"

    He will be an RFA (100% certain) after the 1 year ELC.

    Just always looking on the bright side aren’t you?
    Is this your default?

    So now asking a totally simple honest question is cause for starting a problem. This place never changes.

    Look we have discussed the economics surrounding Sorokin for the last several seasons.

    Once Sorokin signed his 3 year deal with his KHL team - the date for him to come over was THIS offseason.


    There was no way he was paying to break his deal making big money (that was basically tax free) in the KHL.

    One of the major advantages to signing this season (and not last season) means he only has to sign a 1 year ELC before becoming a RFA where he can make bigger money and guaranteed pro $ (a player on an ELC can be sent down and make 70k).

    I am also simply pointing out that you immediately went to some negative thought process of this deal
