On August 11, ruthless presidents of Russia’s Super League Hockey Clubs ultimately rejected to ratify the IIHF-NHL agreement, calling for NHL to acknowledge the Russian contracts between a player and a club. Federation president Alexander Steblin departs today to hold talks with his counterparts in other countries. But the standing of Russian clubs' presidents doesn’t leave any hopes for positive results.

The Czech and Russian ice hockey federations were given a Monday deadline to sign a proposed player transfer agreement after both bodies declined to initial the deal Friday.
The Czechs and Russians are both displeased with the amount of compensation they would receive under the accord reached between the National Hockey League and the International Ice Hockey Federation.
The dispute has jeopardized NHL participation in next year’s Winter Olympics.
