sorokin has one more year on his khl deal. i would try and sign lehner to a 3 year deal. and if he puts up the same kind of season as this season i would trade sorkin's rights for whatever the best deal is. i just feel like he is never coming over. i hope i'm wrong.....

So if Sorokin keeps playing out of his mind you'd trade his rights when his contract finally expires and the Islanders can sign him?



Lehner is going to probably be looking for 5 years and hopefully he gets 4. Greiss' deal expires after next season and that's the perfect time to ease Sorokin in. The key is not giving Lehner a NMC or a full NTC. No reason the Isles can't roll Lehner and Sorokin and let the best goalie get the big minutes. You can always trade one of them.

Trading Sorokin would be the absolute dumbest thing they could possibly do. It costs them zero cap space or actual money to retain his rights and no other GM is going to give up anything noteworthy for a guy that might stay in Russia.

You made chief very happy with this blog Ben. I guess we have to wait at least another year to find out about Sorokin. Greiss only has a year left so the timing is good.

Should that occur, I’ve been given permission by the Oilers organization to gift him Koskinen. Free of charge no less.

Compare his stats to to his backups...compare his stats to the goalies of the other teams that actually compete.
I hope he is great.....
but the top 4 goalies statistically in the regular season come from 2 teams.
It's so lopsided.
His GAA dropped in 1/2, save % up .25 since he moved from Metallurg to CSKA.
Its hard to know what your getting.

I was not aware NOAA named tornadoes. I thought that was just hurricanes.
