Bobrovsky Finds A Home

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

He remains the quiet type, but not as painfully so. His English is improved, which is important to a man who strives to be perfectly understood. All in all, he comes across as … what?

There is something different in his bearing, in his eyes.

It has something to do with the Vezina. “It inspires me more,” Bobrovsky said. “It gives me more confidence. It makes me want more and more. It makes me want to win another one, and win with the team that gave me the confidence.”

He has a team now. He has the Blue Jackets. Finally....

The story took yet another twist in May, when Bobrovsky joined the Russian national team at the world championships in Sweden. There, Bobrovsky found out he was not starting. Bryzgalov was.

Bobrovsky abruptly left Sweden. How far did he go to get away? He and his wife flew to Fiji.

“What can I do? I look forward,” he said.

Where? Bobrovsky was a free agent, and he was being pulled from two different continents.
