He wasn't going to get paid in the NHL anyways. Enjoy Russia. Actually, Russia enjoys you.

Would've liked to see what he could have done on a team that didn't overuse him in the regular season....oh well.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

And so begins the era of low-payed goalies. Hopefully, at least.

So they could have possibly the biggest logjam of goalies in the history of the sport? Sure what the hell lol.. Maybe with 4 goalies in the net they could have stopped some of the goals in the Finals.

What does the UFA goalie class look like next year?

Would one year really create that much more interest in Nabby?

That really sucks for goaltenders trying to bring in that cash and teams that have expensive goaltenders. Hopefully for his sake Mr. "I let in 4 goals this year in comparison to 7 the year before so that's an improvement" changes that culture.

From Pres trophy goalie to KHL in one off season!

I thought the only one they have locked up right now is Leighton? Of course I'd only like it if they got a good deal on him. He was just over played in San Jose. But so long Nabby, nice knowin ya! Doubt he will come back to the NHL.

Maybe TSN has it wrong; they're the only source reporting 6/4.
