      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Suspension] Yakupov Suspended from KHL

18 posts in this topic

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger

IIHF says Yakupov does not have approved transfer card to play in KHL. Russian Hockey fined. Appeal can be heard.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger

Russian Feds have 7 days to respond to Hockey Canada's appeal process.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger

Tough spot for the Oilers who want Yakupov to play during NHL lockout.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger

NHL says it doesn't have a stake in the Yakupov controversy, however, NHLPA says its looking into it.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger

Oilers want what is best for Yakupov. If he can't play in KHL, they want him playing in Sarnia. Bottom line, they want him playing.

So the IIHF suspended him playing in the KHL? I seem to recall the same thing happening to Radulov when he abandoned Nashville. In the end it didn't make any difference.

However, Nail preferring the KHL over Sarnia, where he was under contract to play this season, is the main indicator of why the Oilers might have wanted to draft Murray instead.

Frack, Yakkity-Yak might never come back...

It's not really a suspension, he just hasn't been approved to play there since Sarnia holds his rights. It's a good possibility it gets approved since the Oilers don't object and there's a lockout (after all, it's what we did with Jensen) but it's just a question of getting the transfer card signed off before he can play another game.

They don't want any risk of injury where insurance would become a problem since he isn't approved yet to play outside of the OHL.

How is this different to what Jensen did?

Oilers fans have dubbed him "N64" based on his decision to wear #64 with their team.

But I suppose there will always be those who refer to him merely as "Yak."

Plus, in the one game Nail has played in the KHL already, he was very noticeable.

Check out his successful attempt to walk through the opposng team's defense at 1:08 of the video (with a replay at 1:43), a good wraparound attempt at 1:51, and then a tremendous scoring opportunity at 4:41:
