1. Chicago 2006 2nd rounder (#33 overall) IGOR MAKAROV has gone back to Russia signing a 3 yr deal with SKA of the KHL...thus ends another Chicago russkie failure to develop--if it is any consolation the other draftees in 2006 who were were forwrds taken from 34 on tothe end of that round have not exactly gone on to shin as NHl'ers -wityh 2 noteable exceptions --KULEMIN (Leafs) and ANISIMOV (NYR) -of course both would never have secured NHl roster spots had they been taken by CHI insted of Makarov... 2. In a very surprising development RW SIMON DAHL 6'2 198 and a prolific Swedish Jr. scoring machine since 2008/09 --announced he has retired at age 20 due to lack of motivation.Though he was never drafted he was a very good points getter in his jr. career with 116 goals and 79 assists in 140 P against jrs (reg. season,playoffs,and international games ) plus he did play in 11 DIV 1 games and 2 games with the Linkoping SEL club too ...Anyway is surprising he just gave up on hockey given that he was such a good scorer against his age peer group ..He was supposed to play with Morrum this year (DIV 1). Sad when obviously talented players just lose their motivation for the game.
