Isn't there a contract between the NHL and the Superleague expiring soon?? What would that mean for Ovechkin's contract with Dynamo and any contract he might sign with an NHL club next year? He has 1 more year left on his contract with Dynamo after this year so does anybody know if he can leave that contract to play in the NHL, barring a lockout, or does he have to stay there? It looks like the Russians are complicating matters in the Zherdev situation so how do we know they won't do that with Ovechkin? Any links about the RSL and NHL contract? Thanx in advance!!
