Irbe

It looks like someone is giving Irbe another chance after his precipitous decline...albeit in Austria. Cheers to him though, he had some good years with the 'canes.

I saw that. I'm glad to see he's still playing. Hopefully he'll do well. Who else is on his team? are there any other Austrian NHL players?

FYI, Irbe signed with the same team Darby Hendrickson is playing for. Based on the timing, I assume Irbe is trying to get ready for the Olympics, but that is pure speculation on my part.

What other Latvian goaltenders are there? I dont know of any that have much worth. If there are any please let me know. I think Irbe has been the goaltender for Latvia for the past 6 olympics.

Yes, you are correct that Skudra is Latvian. Based on interviews I read earlier this year, it sounded to me like Irbe was trying to stay in shape to play in the Olympics (I am sure he will have competition from Skudra who is playing in Russia, I believe) and in the World Championships, which are being hosted in Latvia in Spring 2006.
