Tverdovsky wants to stay
Oleg Tverdovsky has told Soviet Sport that he wants to finish off the remaining year of his contract with the Los Angeles Kings, with Tverdovsky's Russian agent, Sergei Isakov, saying that there is "only a two to three percent chance" of Tverdosky playing in the Russian Super League next season.
Tverdovsky has spent the past few days in Moscow negotiating with several Russian Super League teams, including Salavat Yulayev and SKA St. Petersburg, but has not been able to come up with a deal that is to his liking. Tverdovsky stands to make $2.5 million from the Kings next season.
Tverdovsky cleared waivers last February and was sent to the AHL and the Manchester Monarchs, where he was very productive, putting up 24 points (7g, 17a) in 28 games between the regular season and the playoffs.
