Daly Responds To The Russians

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Daly confirmed yesterday that they were moving ahead without Russia on board with the other European countries that signed the transfer agreement last summer. "There is no longer a possibility of an agreement this year that will involve the Russian Federation joining our existing player transfer agreement," Daly said. But, Daly added, that does not necessarily mean that Russian players cannot come to the NHL. "If the player can secure his own release, either pursuant to the terms of his existing Russian contract or pursuant to applicable Russian law, NHL clubs will be free to sign such player, and the resulting NHL contract will be registered and approved as valid for play in the NHL," Daly said.

The Senators are quickly losing hope of having Alexei Kaigorodov in the lineup this season. However, stalled player transfer negotiations between the Russian Hockey Federation and the NHL means it's starting to look like Kaigorodov -- Ottawa's second-round pick in 2002 -- will have to remain in his homeland for at least one more year.
