Great to know they are staying in touch. Could be a nice addition in 2023-24

I don't know if anyone is following the Ivan Fedotov story but it looks like young Russian players getting out of the KHL might be difficult in the coming years.

It’s funny you say that, I hadn’t heard anything about it until about 10 minutes ago. That’s absolutely insane. We’re going back to the days of players having to sneak over like Fetisov and Kasatonov and Mogilny did.

Well this is disappointing, and at least somewhat concerning. 

Yeah this makes no fvcking sense whatsoever. There’s no ‘taste of North America’. That is not a thing. You sign, you come to North America, you stay. You don’t go back. Particularly now.

Guess he wasn't impressed with the taste left in his mouth. You just never know, but like you said particularly now. Career wise would certainly seem like he may just not like it here. Bummer.

Maybe he’s some Putin nut who supports the cause and wants to fight, who the fvck knows. All I know is this peculiar as fvck, and I have serious doubts Muk ever suits up as a Devil now.

Shakir was best all around defenseman on the ice in ahl. He have a lot to learn in Khl. Political climate is on the boiling point, but from the different angle its..  different. He isn't nhl ready. If we wanna develop him, he should play in khl.

Gritsyuk is staying over there at least another year, too iirc. Ugh. So much uncertainty with a couple of our better prospects. Obviously it’s small potatoes when you’re talking about being worried over hockey players joining your team compared to everything going on over there. But it still sucks.

Do you think this is truly the best thing for his development? Because I can’t recall an instance where a guy comes to North America and plays in the minors, only to turn around and go back to the KHL. If that has happened before, I stand corrected- but I don’t remember it happening before. Like Nicomo said, it’s concerning.

Okay so I just watched Fitz’s press conference from this afternoon; it was actually our choice to send Muk back, and Fitz said he likely will come back next year after playing one more full season in Russia. So perhaps I overreacted. But I still don’t recall a similar situation, even if one occurred previously.

Even if there was these are different times.

This is somewhat reassuring, but I really wish Mukhamadullin was playing next season in North America. You just don't really see many defensemen develop well in Russian leagues.

Last year, he had that amazing start, but slowed down significantly shortly after. He came to Utica and was immediately effective, without taking much time at all to adjust. I may have mentioned this before, but if you look at Daniil Chayka, he was drafted as this high end defense prospect, who didn't produce much offensively in the Russian leagues. He came to play in the OHL last season and totally unlocked his potential. I was hoping to see something similar with Mukhamadullin, especially after seeing him contribute on offense in the few Utica games he was in.  But hopefully this upcoming season in the KHL is a big one for him.

Like I said before, we are lookin on the situation differently. Because of understanding details. Situation isn't god, but Mukh will handle it.

About developing - its not a question. Holtz could be deadly in ahl, its good to play there for him, but it doesn't make him nhl ready completely, but as for defenseman, its much better for Shaq to play against much better competition. He can open his offensive two way potential after one year of practice. 

If situation will go change really badly, I don't think this year on NA will mean a lot.

We won’t have to wait long to see some of the new kids. Nemec, Casey, Brennan, Leddy, and Filman are all coming to development camp

Is Leddy related to Nick Leddy?
