"If our salaries get slashed, I'll have to think about whether to return to NHL," he said, according to a translation by Slava Malamud of Sport-Express. :yay:

BTW his insurance cost is said to be 100k/mo. while Crosby's is a concussion-inducing 400k/mo.
Even if the salaries get slashed, he'll have to return to the NHL once play resumes. Otherwise, he risks getting, dare I say it, locked out from the Sochi Olympics by the IIHF.

Unfortunately for us, he'll be back. I say for us because he's indirectly done a LOT for the hockey community in the DC area.

He's wearing #32, btw, same number he wore when he last played for them. Damn, I know way too much about this guy.

Anders Lindback signed a 2 month contract with Ilves in the Finnish SM-Liiga.
Ilves is a very traditional team with most championships of all teams but the last few years they have been in trouble, there was talk before the season if they even can compete, apparently they are hanging by a thread financially and bankruptcy is close. I hope not since my friend is the assistant coach for the team

Marek Kvapil has become a fixture on Czech Republic's Euro Tour teams, too. A lot of our guys who don't make it here do go on to have pretty good careers over there.

Most small and *soft* players do.

Brendan Mikkelson signed with Vasteras HK in Sweden.

I bet you see Marty and Stammer sign in the next couple of weeks.

Lightning's Victor Hedman having "great experience" playing in Kazakhstan

Quote:
"A great experience," Hedman said by phone. "I've been playing a lot and developing my game. I'm very happy I chose to come here, and I'm very eager to get back to Tampa and prove I've gotten better as a player."

Hedman's 18 assists are tied for second among league defensemen and his 18 points in 21 games are sixth. He is averaging 21:51 of ice time and is plus-12.

But Hedman, 21, said he is most excited about his work on offense, especially on the power play where he wants to expand his role with Tampa Bay.

The big Swede last season had only four assists on the power play and averaged just 1:08 of ice time. Overall, he had five goals, 23 points in 61 games with an average 23:05 of ice time.

But Hedman said he now better understands how to meld offensive creativity with defensive positioning. His reaction time also has improved.

"The more time he can spend on (the power play) the more comfortable he will be," Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said. "I know he has the ability to play on it, so it's a matter of getting the opportunity and he's getting that over there."
That's good to hear his offensive game is improving.
