And from what I know he found out his grandfather was seriously ailing right after the Dallas game, and went to Russia immediately afterwards.
And it would be funny if he didn't actually have the biggest slump of his career in the season, which did go along with Siberian's predictions. People predict all kinds of things here all the time that don't come true in the least, observing OV enough to take a far from obvious prediction that turns out more true than 95% of the ones posted is worth some commendation at least.
Might have had a little something to do with Backstrom coming into camp out of shape. Do you and your alter ego also keep tabs on Backstrom? Couldn't you have warned us that he was eating his way through the summer?
