Timeline of events: 29 Sept 13 http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showpost.php?p=71701679&postcount=32 (Gary Lawless of the Wpg Free Press) http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showpost.php?p=71703949&postcount=13 (Ken Wiebe of the Wpg Sun) Starting around 1 Oct 13 there was been speculation that his motive is to play in the KHL. Currently he is in year 2 of his 3 year ELC. Now today: http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showpost.php?p=72276099&postcount=95 There was some speculation on twitter I saw that this move was driven by one of his agents in order to play in the K. Mark Gandler is his North American agent, he has declined comment, I did a quick search but couldn't find a reference to him having an agent in Russia. From the BoH standpoint, could this be the thin edge of a wedge to try and break the MoU between the leagues regarding signing each others players? It makes some sense, try and break the contract of some marginal players that may only ever see a cup of coffee in the NHL rather than go after the big guns first. IMO the Jets and the NHL will have to fight any moves like this, toll the contract and force Telegin's hand into coming back to play out his deal. The NHL IMO doesn't want to end up opening an interleague bidding war for talent.
