Will Canucks Attempt to Bring Tryamkin Out of Russia Sooner Rather Than Later?

With all the uncertainty and posturing in the Ukraine by Russia, one wonders if the renewed Cold War heats up will Russian players be able to leave Russia to join NHL clubs in the near future? Will the Canucks make a concerned effort to bring Tryamkin to North America so that he will be available to them? (Cloak and Dagger operation a la Pavel Bure?)

Things could get quite "dicey."

Lol we dont live in those times anymore.. There will no cold war because of Ukraine. Why? Because it would hurt some western companies as oppose to before when they werent partnered or dependent on Russia. Also there is no such thing as communism in Russia threatening liberal democracy..

The west is going down the diplomatic route till all options are exhausted.

Politics aside just think of it as status quo.. Also we really need to stop getting in this habit of fearmongering.. Makes us look really naive and feeble minded..

With the Kovalchuk "retirement" and signing with ska, how does that not violate the transfer agreement? Couldn't Tryamkin just retire and come to North America?

It doesnt violate the transfer agreement because the devils agreed to nullfy his contract.. And there is nothing in the rule books that says a player cant retire from a league (which what he did), and sign on with another.

I doubt Tryamkin would want to burn bridges in Russia and come here so soon. Afterall it could hurt him if he ever wanted to play internationally as some of the KHL clubs sponsor the National team.

Indeed! We don't live in those times anymore. Things may be different now, but one cannot ignore the fact that tensions in that part of the world are running very high, and that the Ukrainian government has requested Canadian troops to help them.

It is of course a logical assumption that all diplomatic avenues will be tried to solve this conundrum, but Mr. Putin appears determined to push "the envelope" and return to the bad old days.(at least all signs point to this.)

So times might not be as "different" as you think.

Exactly, he will come over in two years after his contract.

It's two years. He'll honour his deal there then come over to play here. We discussed that possibility early on in the Tryamkin Talk thread, but it's just not that likely he comes early - even if the tensions rise over the Ukraine conflict.
