Russian Transfer Agreement question..

Postby mnpensfan on Thu Apr 06, 2006 9:51 am

I know some people follow this more than I do thus know more about it.

So if a new agreement is reached with the new leadership over there and a transfer fee is agreed upon, then basically as long as Malkin wants to come over, Magnitorsk can't stand in the way as long as the Pens pay the fee....correct?

It sounded like a new agreement was a priority from what I read the other day.........

I believe that's true. There may be a minor buy-out/transfer fee involved (I think under the old CBA, it was like $100,000), but that should be it.

Supposedly, there were some meetings that went on during the Olympics between Bettman and the new Grand Poobah of the Russian ice hockey federeation. The new Grand Poobah is reportedly much more willing to discuss this agreement than the old Grand Poobah was.

Didn't the old guys want the $100,000 raised into the millions and to be a sliding scale?

The Russians wanted to do away with the flat fee and be able to negotiate a transfer fee on a player by player basis. It was hinted, but not directly said, that a Malkin-type would cost over a mill.

about 5 Mill. should be enough to bring Malkin over, IFFFFFFFFFF he wants to come over, because he has the say, and only HIM.

Actually, Malkin's team has him under contract for at least another season, so it isn't enitrely up to Malkin. Magnitogorsk would have to let him out of his contract.
