    If we won 10 cups in a row.. I would actually, probably, be ok with this.

    I figure with all the lack of breathing folowed by the insane excitement, I'd be dead after the 6th or 7th one anyhow.

So the problem is not with the team, but really with the KHL itself. The league is arguing that he can't buyout the contract and leave -- that he owes one year of service regardless.

    It has since dropped out of public discussion in the media so unless you've got connections nobody has a clue as to what's going on or how it's being resolved.

    For what it's worth though, John Hoven is saying it'll be resolved in time for pro training camp, but we'll see how that goes.
    By that reasoning when would he have to sign before he's draft eligible again?

    A number of guys on the list will play in the NHL, a few will actually play with the Kings.

    I think Andreoff could make the team out of Camp. I think Forbort might get an injury call up, but I don't think he'll be ready till 2015.

    Mersch, Prokhorkin both will play with the Kings, but not till 2015 at the earliest.

    Zykov is at least 2 years away...and I can't wait to see how he develops.

    You're entering murky waters. There's no Transfer Agreement between the KHL and NHL so I don't really know how the rules apply to their players.

    In contrast you have Sweden, where Adrian Kempe was drafted from, and they have an agreement in place so the team has control over the player for a set number of years (until the age of 22) without having to sign them to a contract. At the end of that time I *think* they're free and clear like NCAA players, but I'm a little fuzzy on that last part since details on the mechanics are hard to come by.

    And an article came out today in Russia that re-affirmed what I heard before about Nikolai Prokhorkin.

    Prokhorkin initiated the contract buyout with his KHL team in late May and paid the requisite money, but there's apparently a rules that says that the league office needs to be contacted before a buyout can be initiated. What's being reported in the article is that it has to be at *least* 9 months notice with requisite paperwork.

    The KHL league office informed CSKA that the buyout is no good as far as they're concerned so the team told Prokhorkin they expect to see him on their ice for training camp then.

    Here's a Google translation of the article.

    Most of these guys will never get more than a cup of coffee with the Kings, or anyone in the NHL. I don't see an NHL future for any of the minor-leaguers in the OP, especially with the Kings in "win NOW" mode, with no full-time positions even debatably open.

    The new draft picks like Kempe and McKeon have time to develop and we'll check back in a couple of years.

    The rest of these guys are minor-league scrubs until they belly up to the bar, grab an NHL position with both hands, and refuse to let go. That's just the way it is.

    Default The Pipeline - Who Gets a Shot and When

    I think the only guy that sees the NHL this year is Andreoff barring a trade or rash of injuries.

    But at some point I think these guys see NHL time with the Kings...
    Kempe
    Prokhorkin
    Shore
    Mersch
    Zykov
    Forbort
    McKeown

    McNabb looks like a shoe-in to make the team this season.

    Andreoff will be given every opportunity to earn a spot on the roster.

    Both of these guys are out of options and would have to pass through waivers to be sent back down to Manchester.

    The GM of CSKA (Sergei Fedorov) is saying so far that they have no plans of letting Nikolai Prokhorkin leave Russia for the U.S. until his contract with the KHL expires on April 30, 2015.

    Could be posturing for additional compensation, or it could be final declaration on the matter. You can never really tell with the KHL.
