    It still doesn't make sense to me that he can't play in the playoffs this year if his contract is starting this year.

    Completely agree. Every other year, players can sign and join their teams for end of season and playoffs. What makes it different this year doesn't make sense.

    I am happy that for Habs, Romanov will at least be able to join the team and practice and get familiar with it all. I am sure Wild fans feel the same with Kaprizov.

    Very happy for Wild fans and all fans who get to see this guy play! NHL needs talent like this to play in the nearby league. Great news!

    I haven't been following but is he still an RFA after this contract or an UFA?

    This is the National Hockey League, not the National Internal Consistency and Equitability Hockey League.

    Were some people just pissed that he was burning a year of his ELC then? From some of the comments I saw, I thought he could walk after his ELC. Good news for Wild fans.

    I think fans are just pissed that the NHL unilaterally decided to not allow him (along with Sorokin and Romanov) to play in this post season.

    I'm just glad to finally get him locked up and in the fold.

    Great news for the Wild fans and for NHL fans in general. Hopefully he fulfills his potential and should be a very good player.

    Was there really any question? :naughty:

    I'll go out on a limb and predict that this will be the biggest selling Wild jersey in no time.

    Exactly this. The league had to create a temporary new rule to account for their arbitrary temporary new rule just so we could get him signed.

    We gladly would've signed him under the existing rule that would have burned a year by another existing rule, which all would've allowed him to play.

    The NHL decided it didn't want the best players in the world who were drafted but not signed to be able to play, create a new rule to prevent them from playing, then had to create a new rule to give a 53 hr window to burn a year without playing, otherwise they wouldn't have signed at all and would've been back in the KHL next year too.

    Just a convoluted mess.

    Shouldn't the league prohibit wearing 97 for other players because of McJesus?
