I went into the boards just like that when I played high school hockey at Highland Park. I'm lucky I didn't break my neck. I hope he recovers completely and quickly!

So Nichushkin left Dallas for $1.21 million a season? I find it hard to believe Nill wouldn't match that.

Of course, this is Russia, so take these numbers with a grain of borscht. It doesn't include mob payments or supermodel BJs ('cause no way Kovalchuk is making just $5.5 mil).

Val also got two years. I bet Nill wanted no part of a two year deal with a half-assing malcontent.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

His stats aren't bad... 3 goals and 9 points and +12 in 12 games. He's only played half a season, and if you project those out to what his teammates have played (20 games), he'd lead his team (or be a close 2nd) in all those categories.

But that's compared to his teamates, who maybe aren't that great. Compared to Kovy or some other Russians dudes I've never heard of, he's not all that and a bag of chips. Not yet, anyways.

Good. He should build himself up at the minor league level. Get lots of playing time. Maybe one day come back when he's learned a few tricks.

Would be great if he built up his value to the point where his rights have value. My guess is we're still going to be whining about defense and goaltending two seasons from now.

That's like Ott scoring 100000 goals in juniors. I'm not impressed.

I'm not picking up the comparison. :? Nichushkin got his ass absolutely handed to him.

Evgeny Artyukhin is 6'5, 255, and more bear than man. WTF is he doing trading punches with him?

I was referring to his points total for the season. He's scoring loads in a shitty NHL wannabe league.

I can't see the fight at work, but I'm gonna assume he took a weak shot and then skated into the corner?

Does Russia have the same gravity that we do? 'cause I see some elevation underneath some of those pucks.

It's obvious. Nichushkin was the key to this team.
