Good for him. Why ride buses to random cities in a foreign land when you can make bank playing decent minutes in a superior league in your home country?

Flawless logic. Sweden and Canada have a lot of similarities.

Logic? Where?

I'd give you Norway, or maybe Denmark as a comparison, but Russia? I'll go out on a limb (not really) and say it'd be easier for a swede to adjust to Canada or the United States, than it would be Russia.

Proximity to home country doesn't equal easier transition.

Superior league? They play forty games on big ice. They are like the CFL of hockey.

Andersson seemed useful when he played here. Volpatti seems more like a Vignault guy, though. This is an error IMHO. Whatever, the fourth line plays small minutes, anyway.

Canucks might need his contract off the books.

To be fair he is signing in Minsk, which is technically Belarus.

Anyways it's bad for the Canucks in terms of depth (he actually wasn not at all terrible while on the 4th line and Moose) but it does free up a contract spot.

Except Manitoba flys everywhere. Seems like its more a case of I thought I was better than I actually am and I am tired of being hit every night so I will go back to Belarus and earn easy money.

I watch a lot of hockey and know most of the NHLers at least by name. So it pains me to say this, but am I the only one that saw the thread title and said: "I have no clue who the hell this guy is?" And then to read the article and find out he's 29 years old...not sure Canuck fans need to shed any tears about this one. I think they'll be just fine.

How much money can he make in the KHL?

I mean, how could it be about money? He makes 0.675mil here even when he is playing for the Moose.

He can make A LOT more money and it is TAX FREE!!! I do not know the tax rates in Canada but in the US if you are making $675 mil, I think the tax rate is 48%, that is a big chunk taken out...

Somehow a guy that is getting 11 points in 20 games doesn't strike me as a guy that is going to make a lot in the KHL.

Does anyone actually have a cap geek of the KHL/SEL? I mean these leagues have caps and then they are signing some guys to 5mil contracts, there has to be lots of guys making 100k-200k over there.

Irrelevant.

There are only three distinct places in the world - Canada, USA and that Europey sort of area.

We had high hopes for him in Nashville...not sure why, he didn't pan out ten years ago when we gave him a shot, but it honestly seemed like he had improved his game to be a useful player in the NHL. Was included in the Shane O'Brien deal when it became clear that he wasn't going to make the roster, despite having a one way contract. I think he only came over on the assumption that he would be on an NHL roster, and when that proved not to be the case, he headed out, this time for good.

He looked really good at the WC. Too bad he never got a fair shot here. I blame the NHL coaches fascination with mediocrity.

He should be a NHL player with his skillset. But since he fails to stick in the NHL, something else must be lacking. I heard he doesn't like to get hit, which may be a problem over here.

Just going by memory (which isn't the greatest) but I think he was originally drafted by the Wild a decade ago but left after a season or two.

Then either this off-season (or last season), he decided to give the NHL (Wild) another shot. He was then traded to the Canucks a few months ago.

This guy can't make up his mind. At the beginning of the season he was delighted to be back in North America with a chance to play in the NHL again. Now he wants out. It's not anyone else's fault that he can't stick on a team.

Oh, man.

Yes, every Swede speaks fluent Russian and is raised on Russian TV shows and music.
