One of the KHL’s biggest clubs is making a massive push for NHL talent during the lockout.
Datsyuk played for one of Moscow’s other famous teams, HC Dynamo, during the last work stoppage, alongside a talented 18-year-old by the name of Alexander Ovechkin.
Bryzgalov didn’t return to Russia during the last lockout, opting to play with AHL Cincinnati, but is on record saying he’d go to the KHL in the event of a work stoppage this season.
The team is led by ex-NHLers Radulov, Denis Arkhipov, Vladimir Zharkov, Oleg Kvasha and Sergei Shirokov and is reportedly in talks with New Jersey defenseman Anton Volchenkov.
Volchenkov is a graduate of the CSKA hockey school and played one season with the senior team before joining the Ottawa Senators in 2002-03.
