From Dobber:
Players who have signed contracts to play in Europe, so far (that I know of): Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Gonchar, Jiri Hudler, Ondrej Pavelec, Pavel Datsyuk, Jussi Jokinen, Jaromir Jagr, Pavel Kubina (that one may be for the full year, not sure), Tomas Plekanec, Ruslan Fedotenko, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Andrei Kostitsyn (that one is for the full year).

AHL:
Braden Holtby, Dmitry Orlov, Vladimir Tarasenko (may go to KHL), Jaden Schwartz, Nino Niederreiter, Kevin Poulin, Kirill Kabanov, Travis Hamonic, Gabriel Bourque, Ryan Ellis, Jack Maclellan, Mikael Granlund, Johan Larsson, Charlie Coyle, Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin, Andrei Loktionov, Slava Voynov, Gustav Nyquist, Damien Brunner, Cody Eakin, John Moore, Ryan Johansen, Cam Atkinson, Sven Bärtschi, Brayden McNabb, Cody Hodgson, Zemgus Girgensons, Marcus Foligno, Luke Adam, Sami Vatanen, Devante Smith-Pelly, Emerson Etem, Alexander Burmistrov, Jake Gardiner, Simon Despres, Michael Stone,David Rundblad, Brandon Gormley, Oliver Ekman-Larsson (Yeah, Portland is going to sick on the blue line. Ridiculous talent),Sean Couturier, Adam Henrique, Jacob Josefson, Adam Larsson, Mattias Tedenby, Jordan Eberle, Teemu Hartikainen, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Justin Schultz, Magnus Paajarvi, Brandon Saad, Andrew Shaw, Jeremy Welsh and Jeff Skinner.
As noted - Phoenix's farm team (Portland) is going to have better D than some NHL teams. Other thoughts:
Edmonton's farm team (Oklahoma City) is almost as good as Edmonton will be. It's pretty much the Oilers minus goaltending, Whitney, Hemsky, Horcoff, Smyth and Yakupov.

Minnesota's farm team (Houston) may be the best of them all - with studs on the ice in front of a stud goaltender (Matt Hackett), I'll be watching as many of their games as I can.

From Angus the day before:


Dmitry Chesnokov, who is a must-follow on Twitter indicates Ilya Kovalchuk's agent says a contract with #KHL’s SKA will be signed by September 19. Pavel Kubina signs with Vitkovice. Despite Vladimir Tarasenko having been sent down to the AHL, his agent confirms talks with #KHL's SKA are ongoing. #Jets Alexei Ponikarovsky and #Flyers Ruslan Fedotenko will play for #KHL's Donbass (Ukraine) the team GM announced). Jaromir Jagr and Tomas Plekanec will play for Kladno during the lockout the club announced. #Jets Nik Antropov received an offer from #KHL's Barys. Nikolai Kulemin will sign with Malkin in Magnitogorsk. Datsyuk: "Won't talk right now; in about a week; need time for the medical and to sign a contract after that." (via @plysenkov)


From Matias Strozyk: CZE media rumours: Hemsky, Krejci to Pardubice; Polak, Kuba, Fleischmann to Vitkovice; Smid to Liberec; Erat to Zlin. Zidlicky training with Kladno, looking to sign with Sparta, who also want Elias. CZE media connecting Sparta to Neuvirth as well. Datsyuk signs with Ak Bars Kazan, as per Sport-Express report. Hockeysverige: Västerås working on deals with Patrik Berglund & Mikael Backlund. Adler Mannheim looking to sign Marcel Goc, Jochen Hecht. Seidenberg too, but he wants to wait a couple of weeks. (via RP). Rumours: Stastny to Nürnberg; Ehrhoff to Krefeld; Kopitar to Servette, who have apparently joined the hunt to compete against Mora. Zug coach told SUI media they're expecting Brunner & Diaz to practice tomorrow. Also negotiating w/Sbisa, who is talking to ZSC & Lugano too.

Edmonton's farm team is going to wreck everyone else. Eberle and RNH are point-per-game players at the NHL level, who knows what they'll do against AHL goalies.

This is not good for their development, it's a waste of their raw talent.

bbq'ing, golf, xbox, and fishing would be a much better way for them to stay sharp.

Is it really a demotion if there is no NHL hockey to play in?

I don't understand why the Edmonton rookies don't go play in Europe or Russia?

Here is a great rundown of the KHL by the Litter Box Cats. Some notable names on each club.

From that rundown I picked out a few new names I didn't note yesterday - Andrei Loktionov, Anton Khudobin, Jakub Voracek, Lubomir Visnovsky, Sergei Bobrovsky, Fedor Tyutin, Ilya Kovalchuk, Sergei Kostitsyn.

Add Nikolai Kulemin to the list, he joins Malkin and Gonchar with Metallurg. He clicked with Malkin years ago - if he can find some of that magic again, he may have some momentum when he returns to play for the Leafs.


Rick Nash and Joe Thornton have joined the Swiss League, and Big Joe has convinced Logan Couture to go there as well, albeit on a different team. Mark Streit will also head back to Switzerland for now.

Add Roman Cervenka, Jiri Tlusty, Michael Neuvirth and Vladimir Sobotka to the Czech League.

Other names off to European leagues include Christian Ehrhoff and Jason Demers.

AHL training camps open on September 28. Countdown to AHL training camps!
