Championship first line centre in the KHL. Two years, 4.5M AAV.

Will they bring in Dadonov and Kovalchuk next?

Their Twitter dept is pretty good.

Not even a month in and they've already sent him down twice and are trying to deal him.

Three games in the NHL and $9 million guaranteed and they’ve already decided he’s not worth it?

Vegas is 7-1 and suddenly not interested in taking a chance on a player's upside? They gearing up for a Cup run or something?

This guy spent the first 30 years of his life in Russia, cut him some slack.

His agent is seeking possible trades. It always makes me nervous when an agent gets to do that, because it feels like they're going to find out what players teams are at least willing to discuss, and it seems like they're more likely to leak it than other GMs, since the GMs wouldn't want it happening to their team. Trade talks can fuck up team chemistry.

And when an agent is allowed to seek the trades, does GMGM tell the agent what type of player he wants in return? Like demanding a 3rd line center, or at least a 15 goal scorer? Some kind of criteria like that. I know the GM obviously gets to pull the trigger or the flusher on the proposed trades, but it just seems like an odd thing to do. Or maybe I'm totally overthinking the situation.

Ship suspended, will have his contract terminated so he can go back to Russia.

Two years of hype and his final line: 3 GP, 1 G.

Can't imagine he wasn't good enough to play in the NHL. Was just the victim of a numbers game in LV and didn't handle it super well.

Fucking lame. Gallant and McPhee somehow agree that Cody freaking Eakin is a better option after three games. Fuck them. I get that they're winning but this is just stupid.

Now I'm hoping this team gets absolutely annihilated down the stretch.

And yes even I'm getting annoyed with their Twitter.

On a side note, Dadonov, who is only 2 years younger and brought into the NHL after spending nearly his entire pro career in Russia, has 14 points in 10 games. Unlike Shippy, he's been given top line minutes with his team's two best players.

Two losses in two games since this shit hit the fan. Karma?
