Good luck Pavel, i'll never knock someone for wanting to go back home to make more money and be close to their family.
Makes me wonder how this will affect the Habs and they're drafting strategy in terms of drafting Russians...maybe they'll start focusing more on Sweeden, Finland and the Czech Republic?
if its a simple case of home sick i mean not much you can do about that and i wish him all the best.Thinking about it now how many russians were down in Hamiltion besides himself this year? Might have been extra lonely time down there for him .
If its for any other reason than" home sick" then time to rethink drafting over there althought he was a 5th rounder it still turns out to be a wasted pick .Atleast Grabovski he got us something in return .
Guess will have to wait for the real story to come out as im sure it will .
