    KHL More problems in KHL - Dynamo Moscow

    Being reported by Slava Malamud on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SlavaMalamud/sta...59633011924992
    KHL releases all Dynamo players with one-way deals. Owed salary will not be repaid but at least they are free. 2-way players still in limbo
    Also: http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/07/04/...he-blues-soon/
    Russian forward Klim Kostin is suddenly free to sign with the St. Louis Blues.

    That’s because Kostin, 18, has been released by the KHL’s financially troubled Dynamo Moscow club. His agent, Dan Milstein, tweeted Tuesday that an entry-level contract with the Blues should get signed “in the coming days.”
    KHL needs to get their act together as Slovan Bratislava still owes players 2 and 3 pay checks from last season. One team is bad enough, but two teams is too much for a league to be consider 'elite'.

    Does anybody know what the status is of Dynamo? I read a while ago, that they will play this season. But do they have a team? Are they playing preseason games?

    Following July 5 they have lost a few players, but managed to re-sign and re-negotiate with many others. I'd suspect some of them re-signed with Dynamo despite the club still owing them..

    The roster looks fine - http://www.eliteprospects.com/team.php?team=6815

    The previous company that funded the team has been dissolved and a new company is made to continue running the Dynamo brand. Its a sly way to go about avoiding debts but it happens all the time in UK hockey! There was no way that Dynamo Moscow was going to dissapear overnight lets all be honest.

    They also have some decent players signing as GX mentions so clearly no worries about being paid going forward.

    The whole Dynamo sports club seems to be introuble though in the long term, especially looking at the state of their soccer team too.
