Chubarov got a better offer to stay in Russia. I'm sure if we were ever able to bring him back he would not be so cheap. Not sure what his contract is, but I think we'd have to offer him more than a million to retain his services... who knows if he'd even want to come back anyway. He might prefer to stay in his native land. It was truly a tough loss. I miss the guy but don't think he'll ever come back.
Well that's great for him I guess and sad for true Canuck fans... I thought he was one of those guys that gave it 110% all the time but never got too noticed, more of a great checking line player that did his job very well.
