so the official word on marcus nilson is out ---he's signed with russian club locomotiv (not CKSA, as initially reported). the flames will pay him a million bucks but it won't count against the cap.
this is, presumeably, a loophole in the CBA that will have more stipulations in the future. and he's apparently getting more dough from the siberians.
training camp starts tomorrow ---the folks governing season ticket holders have once again put out an invitation to watch: this time with all the popcorn and pop you can handle in the avison young lounge on saturday afternoon !!!
