European Leagues Entering Karjala Cup Break

The annual Karjala Cup, a leg of the yearly Euro Tour of the best club players from the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, and Sweden, is slated to begin on Thursday as he European leagues are all winding down toward the Karjala Cup break. Two Lightning properties are currently slated to play in the tournament: Russian winger Anton But and Swedish defenseman Andreas Holmqvist.

The break is also a period of significant transfer activity and with several Lightning prospects in contractual limbo, the break may offer some interesting outcomes for players like Evgeny Artyukhin, Denis Kazionov, and Vasily Koshechkin. We shall see.

Russian prospect news

Not sure if the BP guys had seen this yet, but Denis Kazionov is no longer on any team in Russia and apparently tried out for HC Avangard. I know the last few reports have him as not playing, and very true as he isnt with the team! It's under 10/25/07 notes at www.russianprospects.com

Also I'm trying to find out from my Russian friends, but Artyukhin might be hurt which is why he isnt playing but that cant be found anywhere so its just a rumor for now.
