Alexeev Claims He Grew An Inch

Nikita Alexeev claims he grew an inch and gained 10 pounds of muscle when he was in Russia [url=http://www.sptimes.com/2006/09/13/Lightning/Stint_in_Russia_gave_.shtml]in a Damian Cristodero article in the Times.[/url] He also claims he will "light it up" and "dominate every year." In related news, Alexeev also has some prime land in the Everglades he's looking to sell. The former 2000 1st round draft pick had 6 goals and 10 points in 40 games last season for Omsk in the Russian Superleague. Rhetorical question: if he didn't "light it up" in Russia how likely is it he will "dominate" now in the NHL? Not very. But I'm receptive to being surprised.
