    I thought he was done in the NHL but he has really good numbers in Russia, not sure why else he'd termiate?

    He has a very slick set of hands. Judging by his Olympic play, I could see him fit on a 4th line somewhere...

    Maybe could land a 3rd line slot somewhere. I can't even remember why he left the NHL in the first place.

    Same, along with Klinkhammer and Schlemko.

    Extremely overrated, and injury prone.

    He didn't bring much outside of his offensive game, and his offensive numbers dwindled.

    Lol Gilbert Brule. Also Ponikarovsky is still playing?

    Travel would be awful on that team, but playing in Beijing would be a blast.

    Makes sense. I remember the one big season between Colorado/Phoenix and then just... nothing from the dude after that.

    Schlemko will be back in the NHL as soon as he comes back from his injury. Speaking of names I haven't heard in a long time, Klinkhammer damn...

    He looks to have done a lot better in the KHL than he did over here.

    At one point the Capitals had all of Wolski, Ribiero, and Hendricks together on one roster, but I don't think they ended up in a single shootout until after Wolski started getting healthy scratched.

    Him being some kind of shootout whiz is the only thing I remember about his time in the NHL.

    He's 32 and 5 years removed from NA hockey. I'd be surprised if this termination was due to an NHL job.

    Agreed but he's killing it there and making a lot of money, they wouldn't let him mutually terminate if he was going to another KHL team.
