Lebda to KHL

Lebda needs to switch back to his college number 13 & try to fool KHL owners into thinking he's Pavel. That's the only way he'll get the big rubles over there.

From the article:

"Dynamo Minsk carried on negotiations with Detroit defenseman Brett Lebda. The American could become the fifth legionary defenseman on the Belorussian KHL club."

I read that as "legendary" and water came out of my nose.

Slightly OT, I wonder how many goals Maltby scored when he was in junior?

ANyway, let Lebbers walk. There are enough prospects on D that need to fill the #7 role here.

Of all the stories I expected to break this off-season, "Lebda holding up contract negotiations for more money" was not one of them.

Poor Lebda. Does he know he's a joke?

The only thing that could make this story better, is if the reason for their lack of lebda funds is due to the $30 million contract they are going to offer j-will.

To be fair we don't know how much they offered Lebda. They might have just offered him 100 bucks and 10 Russian burgers.

I met Lebda's uncle a few times in LA and Anaheim. He lives out here. But he is super easy to find, short, a little over weight, and the only son of a ***** wearing a Lebda jersey! Actually he was super nice as we were talking to him. But he divulged to us, that this past season would Brett's last in Detroit.

I'm certainly not going to argue that he was good by any means, but Lebda takes far too much hate on these forums. He played like a number 6/7 defenseman, which is exactly what he was. God knows, whoever replaces him is going to be hated just as much here, because those types of players make mistakes. It's why he had a cap hit of $650 000.

Best of luck to him wherever he ends up.

Poor old Brett, no love for the guy who gave us the drunk-as-hell radio interview the morning after the cup win :)

Oh my gosh, are we thinking of the same one!?!? The one I always think of was on 96.3 where he was talking about the guy across his street sweeping the leaves off his driveway. Lebda kept slurring "He doesn't even know". One of the funniest things I've ever heard. :lol:

The problem was, that Meech consistently showed to be a better option... at a lower caphit and Lebda played like an 8/9 (AHL) defenseman more than a 6/7 (NHL) defenseman.... to be honest, with the horrendous season he had, I even had Janik higher on the depth chart, for quality minutes... Lebda could have made league minimum and his minutes still would have been better served elsewhere, that's where the hate comes from...

I'm just glad he's gone from here and no longer wasting a roster space...
