World Class Player Makes Flames Stronger

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
"He's a world-class player. He played on a team as good as ours last year in February," said Sutter, referring to Taratukhin's inclusion on Russia's Olympic team. Sutter said the delay in announcing the signing was in the hopes the NHL would come to a new transfer agreement with the Russian hockey federation. "We waited hoping there would be an agreement but there wasn't and they kept stretching the deadline hoping to reach one between Russia and the NHL, so we made a decision to sign our player," Sutter said. Even if it may mean a legal fight down the road? "I don't really know. It doesn't really concern me," he replied.
