Denis Kazionov Trying Out For Omsk; Artyukhin Released

Russianprospects.com is reporting Lightning prospect Denis Kazionov has left Novokuznetsk and is currently trying out for Avangard Omsk of the Superleague. Kazionov had not played for Novokuznetsk for nearly a month and is scoreless in 8 games this season.

The web site also reports Evgeny Artyukhin was released by Omsk yesterday. "The young towering forward struggled to deliver this season for his new club, with just 3 goals and 2 assists in 19 games," russianprospects.com reports. "His high salary has reportedly prevented him from joining one of the clubs looking to employ his services."

Arty

I wonder if this will make something go off in his head that his agent might not be in it for his best interests. The kid walked away from the NHL, and now has been released from his club, and will have trouble finding another due to his salary to production ratio.

Good luck to him, but he deserves to be where he is right now.

Betcha that Tarnasky money

Betcha that Tarnasky money looks good right now.

Finally got some Arty info.

Finally got some Arty info. Apparently they are possibly looking to replace him with Kazionov...quite the turn for Arty's career. Avangard also isnt very happy with Svitov either as he has to this point produced as little as Artyukhin did. My guess is he ends up in the Russian B league working for his meal money every day. Kind of a waste, gotta love Artyukhin lsitening to that genius Gandler.

As for Tarnasky money...I'll take that money to produce nothing in 10 games too! (offical Tarns hater here, sorry)

$

If Arty's agent got him more $$$ in Russia I wouldn't blame Arty one bit for going back, Who wouldn't? If his agent didn't get him more $ and still had him go back then thats on the agent and I cant blame the kid at all for that. 99% of people trust the "professionals" they deal with, whether they are truely "professional" "experts" in thier industry or not; just ask all of those millions upon millions of new home owners who trusted their "professional" Real Estate agent and Mortgage broker who guided them into that subprime ARM loan.
