Season in Russia Became Nightmare for South Buffalo's Tim Kennedy

Former Buffalo Sabres forward Tim Kennedy thought he knew what he was getting into when he signed to play for Nizhnekamsk Neftekhimik, a Russian team located in a closed town – seriously, you need permission to visit – and led by a Soviet-era coach.

“I knew that going in that it was the worst city and I heard that the coach was really tough, but you figure how bad can it be and how bad can the coach be?” Kennedy said last week. “You get there and it was like my worst nightmare.”
Man, feels like that guy's been everywhere to try and keep playing

Rolston and Janik were relieved from their AHL posts in the Arizona organization earlier this week.

What exactly happened with him? From what I remember, he wasn't terrible when he played here. Nothing special, but not terrible either. Did he really fall off the map that far? Seems like some team in the US could at least use him on their minor team as a veteran presence.

He was fine in the AHL from what I can tell.

That one play in the playoffs for the Sabres really hurt his career. Never seen someone get knocked off the puck so easily...

Yeah, his AHL numbers are fine. I imagine someone told him to see the world and he signed in the KHL for that very reason. He is only two seasons removed from a 37-game NHL season.

Sigh - neither Dave Andreychuk or Alexander Mogilny were named to the Hall Of Fame today.

Man, what's it going to take to get Andreychuk's 640 goals into the Hall? At least they finally honored Pat Quinn, 18 months late.

The Hall seems to think that short bursts of dominance out weight long stretches of great play. I think it's an outrage that the all time power play goal scorer isn't in the Hall. Total disgrace.

I wouldn't doubt it.

I still can't understand what happened to this kid. He was on the right trajectory after a rough start to his career. 19 goals and 41 points in 2011-12. 34 points in 48 games in 2012-13. 20 goals and 44 points the following year. And then suddenly he totally sucked at the ripe old age of 24. Really weird.
