    Evgeny Kuznetsov staying in Russia for 2 more years

    Tough blow for the Caps. Was really hoping he would make his way to the states. Kid seems to be something special.

    The latest update on whether Evgeny Kuznetsov will elect to leave Russia to join the Washington Capitals next season offers the most discouraging picture to date. On Tuesday, the day Kuznetsov became a restricted free agent in the KHL, multiple Russian news outlets reported that the 19-year-old winger intends to stay with Traktor Chelyabinsk for the next two years.

    “We have agreed to all terms [with Traktor],” Kuznetsov told Sovietsky Sport’s Pavel Lysenkov as translated by Dmitry Chesnokov of Yahoo’s Puck Daddy. “And it’s just a matter of signing a new contract. Signing it is just a formality at this point.”

    A Capitals spokesman said the organization had no comment on the reports at this time, but if this proves to be Kuznetsov’s intent, it will be a significant blow to the team’s future. Kuznetsov was named the top prospect in the world by The Hockey News this season.

    He's 19. He'd rather play in the KHL than the NHL, and I cant say Id do any differently. This isnt a bad thing for Caps fans

    He gets two more years of "development" and hopefully will come back as a 21 year old
