    Well it could (and probably should) be Gusev's demand that first entrly level year is burnt off by Vegas in order to get him commit to them.

    I doubt it, it's easier to earn a good contract, playing a full season, than a fraction.

    It is not about earning anything, it is all about getting out of entry level deal shackles as soon as possible.

    @Caser

    Thank you for posting this. However not quite familiar with Gavrikov. Is he considered a two way guy? Shut down guy or offensive guy?

    Thank you

    Awesome post, thanks for taking the time to share you're knowledge with us. Golyshev is an interesting prospect for my Isles, I do hope he comes over eventually. He occasionally posts pics on his Instagram of his kids in Isles gear with an Islanders hashtag, so that's good I guess.

    When I saw your comment I had to doublecheck the details of the Duchene trade. :D

    Gavrikov is a shutdown guy, who contributes to the offense from time to time when the situation is right.

    With Golyshev I basically just thought what I would do if I was in his place, I mean, currently there are two options for him:

    1. Leaving his wife with a newborn and another little kid and joining the Isles with no real financial "airbag" in case it doesn't go the right way.

    2. Waiting for couple of years and coming over together with his wife and kids in a much simplier family situation and with some money in your pocket.

    I mean, I'm not sure if many of us would really choose the first option here.

    Any talk of Svetlakov getting out of the last year of his contract? The Wild should have a couple openings next year.

    The issue is that "getting out of the last year of his contract" is basically just a somehow popular myth, as teams are, for obvious reasons, not fond of letting their important players just like that.

    Any idea on what's up with Volkov? Why is he not playing? Injured?

    Iirc, he got injured after the trade to Yugra and now his season is over anyway, as Yugra lost in the first-round.

    Judging by recent reports I might be too sceptical about Golyshev's chances of coming over than I should.

    Very good post the detail is tremendous.

    One question: what’s your opinion in Kaprizov and how do you feel he will do in the NHL when he comes over?

    Well, I think it is obvious that Kaprizov is hockey's one of the top prospect, so if we substitute that in your question we'll get 'how do you feel hockey's one of the top prospect will do in the NHL when he comes over?' and the answer here is quite obvious either.

    You mean he is staying in the KHL, or that his game wouldn't adjust to the NHL?

    Isles could desperately use some top-9 scoring talent.

    He said he was too skeptical about whether Golyshev would come to the NHL. The reports indicate that he's joining the Islanders for next season.

    Yep, that's what I meant. Also thinking that it must mean Lou made an offer he couldn't refuse, for example, promising him Eberle's spot.

    If we are talking something more concrete, then i think for top attacking prospects a common expectation is around 0.5 ppg in the first season gradually growing towards ppg production in a couple of years later.

    That's even a bit cautious for the beginning.

    Kovalenko is signed for at least one more season in the KHL, correct? I assume that he will make the jump at some point, but I wonder if it will be delayed/complicated by his father's role.
