There will be more bolting to the KHL before the end of the summer. Niemi's hearing is today, right?

Hes not a forward... Defenceman get payed alot more because of the amount of ice time they get. Grebeshkov is a #1 on alot of teams, and a #2 on most.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

he was a -16 overall in his short NHL career as well. The KHL pays every player twice of what they're worth. Grebeshkov is not worth $3 Million, i wouldn't even pay him $1.5 Million. But whatever, good riddance, don't try to come back.

Anyone hear any rumors about current NHL players that could possibly sign with the KHL?

I am really sad to see this happening. A few players I can understand. I really thought highly of Grebs. He is a really skilled, calm first pass player. Steadying on the point. No real shot or anything, but just a good defenseman - uses his brain more than brawn. I loved watching him on Edmonton and he was usually a player that I traded for as soon as possible on video games. I can't believe that this is happening a second time for the Preds. Is there something with the management team there that can not handle Russians? First Radulov now Grebeshkov?

I wonder where Legionnare is and what he is thinking... Thats a big hit with those 2 players. Grebeshkov was supposed to be a replacement for Zidlicky - same type of player.

Imagine if Hudler AND Rafalski left for Russia over a 2 year period. Yikes.

He never really played on any good teams, and he was wicked overpaid by the KHL team. Denis Grebeshkov is not worth $3 Million a season. That's how the KHL lures everyone. I expect many more players to bolt for the KHL before the beginning of the 2010-2011 season. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Slava Kozlov, Robert Lang, Ville Koistinen, Ruslan Fedotenko, Maxim Afinogenov, Evgeny Artyukhin, Marek Svatos, and Ruslan Salei all head to the KHL. And those were the guys right off the top of my head.

Grebs is from the Mike Green school of defense (in other words-- f*** it I'll just try and score). You can't be a turn-over machine unless you put the points up to justify that and he never did.

im afraid this whole cap issue is going to slowly have an adverse effect on the rosters in the NHL. With the cap supposedly being lowered more and more UFAs who cant get what they feel they are worth will go to the KHL, whilst they have the money. The talent pool will then water down and the not so good GM's will have 2 lines of talent and 2 lines of mediocre players. The only way to eliminate this from happening is to either reduce the current 30 teams to whatever, or disolve the cap altogether. It will take a few years to happen but if the KHL stays strong then the NHL need to act accordingly.
