According to a report out of Russia, the Islanders are attempting to lure Kirill Petrov to North America after his contract ends in the KHL by guaranteeing him a spot on the 2014/2015 squad.
Petrovs agent had this to say in the Russian report:
"We are in close contact with them and they are expecting Petrov,” Tyzhnykh said of the Islanders. “And they are not just expecting him, but they are ready to guarantee him a place in the roster now...His contract with Ak Bars is valid for one more year and he has to work it out,” said the agent. “We’ll see what will happen afterwards. Petrov is turning into a leader of the Kazan team, so let’s not jump too far ahead.”

Personally, after what Snow said at the booster club meeting last week, I think this is more work of Petrovs agent trying to get him a bigger contract extension next off season in the KHL rather than believe that we may see him here in two seasons.
If you are unaware, Garth Snow addressed this at the booster club meeting last week and in lamens terms said that he doesn't believe Petrov would ever be apart of this team
