"Russia is an attractive option for young, vibrant talent which is not properly treated (by NHL teams)."Submitted by missK on August 23, 2006 - 20:41
Mark Gandler, the agent who represents those players, says Russia is an attractive option for "young, vibrant talent which is not properly treated (by NHL teams)."
Feaster is also quoted about R2 but this paragraph is the one takes the cake IMO....
That Artukhin, Grebeshkov and Bergenheim are Gandler's clients is just a coincidence, the agent said from his New Jersey office. He vehemently denies the rumour that he was getting a cut from Russian league clubs to deliver them NHL players.
