Maybe, but not to come over now. Sorokin would have to buy out the rest of the deal with his own money.

Isles will make it worth his while.

What if we paid him 20 gazillion dollars?
- Cptmjl

I don't know if there is a cap on how much they could offer him on an ELC. But if he rides out the last two years of his KHL deal then he only has to sign a 1yr ELC if/when he does make the jump. So by waiting he only ends up forced to make poop ELC money for 1 season, instead of 3 right now. I doubt he wants to do that and I doubt even more he wants to pay a few million dollars to buy himself out to come here and make nothing, comparatively speaking.

Hmmm didn't think of this till they mentioned it at the draft but could we possibly trade with Colorado for Grabauer? Avoid orpik's salary get rid of a first?

I don't for sure, but since that's exactly what everyone says/thinks...I assume there's some sort of protection against that. How? I have no idea. Just seems too obvious for the league to ignore.

Kidding. I'm not sold on a prospect till he proves he can play in the NHL especially a goaltender. I just don't get excited. I know you love the prospects and the whole not knowing part is what's exciting but I'm a sure thing dude

(Now I know you'll assure me he's a sure thing)

Don't know, but maybe any help with the buyout would count against the cap, making such a buyout unrealistic for many teams?
