    I think the tax situation is more favorable for khl guys plus you have the cultural pull for Russian players too

    Makes sense, he's not NHL calibre and can make more than 70k in the KHL.

    Sometimes you hit with these players we sign out of Russia, sometimes you don't. We should expect that, and not become too dependent on hitting home runs every time with each player that is signed like this. The more alternatives from more sources, the better.

    Does anybody know the contract details or suspected/anticipated contract details for his contract with his KHL team? Is it a multi-year contract?

    He would have been on a collision course with Barabanov who we know will be given every chance to make the big club along with Mikheyev and Engvall. Barabanov makes 8 wingers on the club with 7 having NHL experience this season if you assume Clifford is gone and count Spezza and Kerfoot as centers. He will come out of a 1 year deal in the KHL into an NHL expansion year and another flat cap with clubs looking for cheap help. They might have owed him his signing bonus but not the salary if no AHL year so if the K pays better than $92,500.oo he wins.

    Assuming the KHL season starts around August and the '21 NHL season starts in December, does this mean Korshkov could possibly finish his contract in the K and still be eligible to return to Toronto for the last four month stretch of the regular season + playoffs?

    If so, I don't think anything has changed. Management wasn't happy that he decided to stay an extra year in the KHL because they probably envisioned him playing one season with the Marlies regardless. The plan was probably to have him see NHL minutes in his second NA season anyways.

    Agreed. He hasn't been given enough opportunity here, regardless of if you like the pick or not. Korsh is an NHL player as it stands today. Whether he's a depth piece or a legitimate bottom sixer remains to be seen, but I have no doubts he could play regular minutes. People forget that he almost made the team out of camp when Babcock was coach.

    You can play the hindsight game all day long when it comes to the draft, but if management can develop him into a poor man's Jordan Greenway (closest comparison IMO), then this is still a score in the 2nd round.

    Also he returns to a Canadian coach, and a weaker lineup than the one he left so a bigger role I imagine. It might be just another player trickling out of the Leafs system but there seems to be a lot of positives for him, and I expect he will be in the hunt for a shot at the NHL next year. Any player who needs a full AHL season to be ready for the show should be considering this path, though the Swiss League might be an easier way. He is still very much a prospect to me.

    It was enough money to keep him from coming over and developing properly in the AHL for 4 years.

    Not low compared to the AHL though. I imagine he got a healthy raise to go back but still well under $200k

    Should have drafted DeBrincat with that pick. Although a Marner-lite lite lite, he have made Marner expendable for an elite RHD. Could have also meant Marner would have had less leverage during negotiations, resulting in a smaller cap hit.

    Alternatively, could have packaged DeBrincat for a RHD. Korshkov, as it turns out, was a useless asset. Thanks Hunter.

    I wanted Debrincat at the time, and the Korshkov pick was certainly questionable, but let's not pretend that Debrincat or any of the other players projected to go in the early 2nd didnt have question marks. I'm also not sure how Debrincat makes Marner expendable. They are about as polar opposite players as it comes.

    It was in last season. From this year there is salary cap in KHL and new contracts are significantly lower.

    Wonder if the Leafs suggested he do this so he wouldn’t lose a year?

    Ya, after reading other posts in this thread, I see that this is possible.

    Beyond that, I haven't enough knowledge about the KHL, COVID in Russia, or Korshkov's plans to make any comments though.

    I don't agree a team expects a 2nd round young D draft pick to be an impact player so soon.

    Dermott being 23 with 150 NHL games under his belt is developing very well IMO.
    Next season is very important to his future potential and growth.

    Being #3 at LHD is where I would hope he would be. Did anyone actually think he would rank ahead of Reilly or Muzzin at this point in his career? And IF Sandin passes him on the depth chart next year that is a 1st round pick passing a 2nd round pick. Not that unusual.

    So it’s a loan agreement with the leafs. Development year that works for both parties. I hope he gets lots of playing time and power play etc. He’s still young and this is ok

    Total waste of a high second by "draft god" Mark Hunter.

    Obviously Hunter, Dubas and the rest of the management liked Korshkov enough to select him as high as they did.
    Until he's no longer Leafs property I wouldn't write him off.

    Have the Leafs said anything about him going?

    Then I'll be very happy to admit I'm wrong.

    As it stands it's extremely hard to defend this pick.
