D Mark Flood signs with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL

Another signing for the reborn Lokomotiv: former NYI and WPG defenseman Mark Flood. He is familiar with the coach Tom Rowe via working together in Albany River Rats of the AHL.

Could somebody please give some insight on what kind of a player Flood is, what are his strengths and weaknesses?

Offensive def with a good shot. Could be new Kevin Dallman in KHL.

From what I've seen of him (not much, but...) a good puck mover and shooter, albeit a bit soft and messy on his own end. Could fare better on the open ice.

Horrendous for the Islanders when he was called up.

did not look all that out of place in his callups with WPG last year. He would still have been our 8th or so defenseman, so I can see why he left. Hopefully he does well in the KHL!

I have a soft spot for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl after the tragedy, so I hope Mark Flood does well for the team. Based on the comments made thus far, the bigger ice surface should help him move the puck easier. Hopefully it works out for Mark and Lokomotiv!

Like Dwight King playing for the Kings, Flood was perfect for Winnipeg.

The new Lokomotiv will be interesting to watch but a little creepy as well
