This is my theory on why he suddenly left. He obviously enjoyed it over there during the lockout, and expressed his sentiments to Lou upon returning last season. Still doesn't seem like a guy to just walk away from this huge deal on short notice like that. I think he told the Devils he'll stay for a few more years as long as they need him, but he does not want to stay in the US for this entire contract. I think the Devils told him to think about it and if he really wanted to go back to Russia it had to be done this year before cap penalties got worse and worse the longer he stayed without fulfilling his contractual obligations.

I went through the 5 stages of grief pretty quickly.  I'd find it hard for anyone to argue that NJ isn't better off at this moment.

Man if I let it this thread could get me pretty heated all over again

I hope this Beetle eyed prick returns to the NHL someday just so I can get the chance to relentlessly boo him and call him every name in the book.

Seriously, all we are left with is booing at fans who still wear his jersey to games.

I hadn't read or watched Game of Thrones at the time this happened, but from now on I just may call it the Red Retirement. Thanks DM.

I saw the thread title and automatically assumed it was revived because he was coming back to the NHL.

sure if you look at some 5 on 5 corsi stats maybe you can convince yourself that.

 

looking at our shootout, remembering all the games we lost by one goal and a streak of missing the playoffs since he left....

 

no we're not better off. buddy was scoring big goals for us and was drawing opposite players opening the play for the other guys and he's fast. it's all immensely missing now on this team
