Zherdev Not The Only One Wanting To Leave Russia

Former tender JF Labbe bolted!!

Came home for a holiday around Christmas, then informed Lada he wouldn't be back...

Is the water that bad over there?

I think he saw his twins and couldn't leave them behind. Can't say I blame the guy, I'd probably do the same thing.

It was for family reasons, so your twins thing could be very accurrate. Strong family man, gotta respect that.

Wasnt he an all star calibur goalie there?

If he still lives in town, mabye playing for the Stars might be a good idea for him.

Labbe was playing out of his mind... but he should have. It was a lesser level of hoceky. More a-kin(sp) to the AHL, where Labbe had success.

Also, I too have read, somwhere, that Labbe came home to see his new baby twins, and decided he couldnt leave them.

Anyone hear if he is going to join any teams? Or if he is planning on taking the rest of the year off, or possibly retiring?

I thought his Russian squad was trying to enlist him in the army...but couldn't find his papers!

On a serious note: Labbe had twins in November, so you kind of understand the guy's situation. He is a great goalie by Superleague standarts, I will say it again and again that Canadian goalie school is THE BEST! Very many Russian clubs dream of having a good Canadian goalie.

Tikhonov: Kolya, you have lots to learn!
Zherdev: Nah, I better go to Columbus....
