    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."

    Interesting ......If this is all true it will surely make Bobrovsky think long and hard about the KHL option.
    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

    If you are asking for advice and you don't provide ALL the relevant info you will not get quality responses and many forum members won't respond at all.

    Include all the details, e.g.; League and roster size, league type (H2H, Roto, Pts only), scoring set-up, daily/weekly starts, how many start at each position, max gp, your roster etc etc.

    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!

    You mean like when David Stern was doing trades for the New Orleans Hornets?
