Doesn't matter, shortage of number ones drives up value.

I distinctly remember him being homesick for the Motherland his first few years in America.
Besides, the alternative is Columbus.
I say he's gonzo alonzo....
The promise of being the starter in the Olympics will be a huge draw and no way he get 10 million out of Columbus. He never struck me as a guy who really adapted to North America. Hope he bolts. But would Luongo waive to play there?

Yes. Jaromir Jagr left the Rangers in 2008 to play for Avangard Omsk in the KHL.
He played there for three years before returning to the NHL.
Also, isn't it intersting that when the Bruins lose that major injuries to key players all of a sudden matter....
If Hamhuis + Kesler remained healthy, & one of Manny or Rome play through the series, we probably win it.Hockey Widow wrote: I said it at the time, I've said a thousand times since, if we did not have the injury problems we had in the finals we would have beat Boston; or if they had comparable injuries to what we had they would not have won.

It's obvious now that contracts like Lou's and Vinnys and Bryzs just ain't no good for the payroll
