    Great, he’ll be on a 4 day bender. Might as well hire Fleury as his chaperone.

    Kravtsov, who turned 19 two days before Christmas, is not eligible for an entry-level contract slide. Hence, the Rangers would burn the first year of his deal by signing him this year, regardless of how many NHL games, if any, he would play.
    This assumes greater relevance because of the 2021 expansion draft regulations for Seattle that are the same as were in place for Vegas in 2017. Players who have completed one or two years of their entry-level deals are exempt, but those coming off entry-level must be protected or are eligible to be claimed.
    The Blueshirts could sign Kravtsov to an amateur tryout and bring him over to play in Hartford for the AHL Wolf Pack in order to begin the acclimation process to small ice and North American life, but it is unclear whether that will occur.

    It's going to be an ATO. It was always going to be an ATO. It would be colossally stupid for it not be an ATO.

    I’m not sure why anyone is concerned about the expansion draft. If Kravstov is good, they’ll protect him. Right now there’s not many guys you have to be worried about losing.

    Why would you waste spots though, just to have him play 10-15 games?

    Currently need to protect Zib, Chytil, Andersson, Howden, and Lemieux. That leaves 2 open forward spots for any FA signings, including Kreider, Vesey, and Buch.

    Bingo. It's asset management. It's also one extra ELC year of Kravstov to work with as the team improves, rather than burning year one on this season's death throes.

    I think the issue is closer to "Is it worth losing a year on his ELC, a year of RFA, and a expansion draft exempt status for 5 meaningless games?"

    From a fan perspective - sure get him here. And I also think his agent should be negotiating for this ("Sign me now... who knows what I may be getting from Traktor in May")
    From a fan looking at management - TO in Hartford (not, Hartford blows) or wait until the season is over and bring him in for prospect camp after the draft. This is, literally, his first chance to breath since the draft

    Ideally when the expansion draft gets here the only skaters you have to expose are Lettieri, Fogarty, and some journeyman D signed to be the 7th.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the expansion draft. Vegas didn't "draft" anyone good. All their top players were acquired through deals.

    I'd rather let all three Russian kids relax a bit, see if they can play in the World Championship, and then all come over together to get ready for the summer camps.

    Yes and no.

    They drafted Schmidt, Karlsson, Marchessault, and Fleury.
