Ladislav Nagy to Russia? Update: Confirmed

It's possible. Remember that reporter though? He's the one that started the Sundin-to-Vancouver shit storm weeks back.
As long as Nagy doesn't get signed by Vancouver I don't care where he ends up. The guy is softer than Salo!

UPDATE:

From Kukla's:

Left wing Ladislav Nagy views his decision to sign a $5.6 million, two-year deal to play in the Russian Super League as a temporary stop and not a long-term plan.

“Nagy fully intends to come back to the NHL if he can find a situation where he will be given the minutes in order to produce at the elite level he is capable of,” said his agent, Matt Keator....

“The level of talent in Russia is improving every year with top NHL players heading over there,” Keator said. “It has become a viable option for players to play at a high level and be very well compensated. As this league grows and matures, it will pose more and more competition to the NHL for players.”
Adiose!

No, he's softer than soft serve on a hot day. I like how the translated article called him an "NHL star." Gotta get the laughs where I can during the off season. Thanks for the heads up!

I had a chance to speak with Nagy a few weeks back,he told me that he will sign in russia for one year to prove to the NHL that he can play without getting injured.

Very hournerable thing to do!
Good luck to nagy!

Connie: Yeah, the Swedish papers more or less refer to Jan Hlavac as a star as well! Ha!

Gill- ORLY? Next time you talk to him, ask him for Sundin's phone number so I can talk to Mats.
The Russian League isn't as physical as the NHL, so what is Nagy going to prove then? Answer: That he can score a buttload of points in a less physical league, and then some schmuck NHL team will sucker for him.
