    It's at the bottom of the 2nd article you linked to.

    "SKA has reportedly offered $10 million a year to Bobrovsky, and his pay could be exempted from the KHL salary cap under league rules, which allow certain major signings not to be counted, at the league’s discretion."

    This is also interesting:
    "Medvedev suggested a move to SKA could help ensure Bobrovsky of being Russia’s starting goaltender at next year’s Olympics in Sochi, the first time the Winter Games have been held in his home country."

    Am I the only one finding it REALLY shady that Medvedev is sitting on two chairs? It's like if Gary Bettman would represent the Rangers and offer a star player "here, you can have this contract that breaks the league rules, but that's fine because I'm the league commissioner too"
    GO WINGS!
