of course i intensely want pavel to stay...but he would be one of the few athletes i'd fail to criticize for whatever decision he makes. i often assume pro athletes make their decisions for selfish reasons (and might be very wrong to do so), but he has my complete respect. i consider watching him develop over his entire nhl career just as enjoyable as watching nick lidstrom. for different reasons, but very much the same. i'd be sad if he left for the khl, but i'd gladly line up to shake his hand if he did. we're lucky to have had him on our team.
