Obviously. I don't see him reporting to Liepaja if he clears waivers. I don't think he played poorly, but imports are expected to put up a lot more points than he has so far this season. I can't blame the team for demoting him, but I can't blame him if he decides to ask for a release instead of spending some time in the Belorussian league.
I`am really curious what was hes issues that he couldn't show at least average performance. Guy was 0.50 PPG player at NHL (funny thing, now he has higher ppg in NHL then in KHL), was pretty solid in Sweden, but this year - total disaster.
I really had a hope, that Abols will give him a chance, because possible the problem was Pekka`s non-stop rotation. Guy never playd 2-3 games in a row with same partners. Ohh, or maybe there was 3-4 games when he played with Meija and Dzerins in 3rd line, and actually those games their line looked really great.
Schremp is gone.
And will it happen again? win over Neftekhimik and then humiliated by ak bars, this time by ufa? im scared about sunday.
Lets hope not,but today i saw something i didn`t see for a long time in the lines of Riga. passion and a will to win,Nefthekhimik was clearly better,but we still fought with all we got and ofcourse Telquist was brilliant in the net.
Is he gooning it up a lot, as well? I saw some highlights the other day (I forget which team you played), and he tried stirring up a fight, even though there wasn't really anything to fight about. That was what actually spurred me to ask this question in the first place, as it felt really unnecessary, and hopefully with the additions of him and, say, Gillies to Vityaz, the KHL doesn't go down that road.
