WOW…just…wow. Just to see him play…..gives me goosebumps. He’s the reason I will continue to watch hockey….for these memorable goals!

I will say it again, with more emphasis, now that 30+ more games were lost: appreciate Pavel while he’s wearing the Winged Wheel.  Like Barry, Trammell, Cabrera, Verlander, Calvin Johnson, Isiah, Joe D, Lidstrom, Yzerman. When you have Hall of Fame play to enjoy, savor every moment of it.

Of course I miss Magic Pav!  But this just pisses me off even more.  He was over there in Russia, playing and having a great time while we all sat over here with no hockey for half a season.  I know all the players didn’t get to play during the lockout, but most of the top players did.  Seems to me like the fans are the only ones who lost out in this mess.

Saw a link to a Finnish article and later the Russian source article and Pav was talking about wishing he would get to play the whole season over there.  That if there’s a deal made here to get the half-season going he’d be disappointed and that his heart will remain with the Red Army team.

Said it in another thread, but Pav has made statement after statement about missing his homeland and missing speaking his language.  No idea on god’s green why KH wouldn’t get him a Russian or two for the locker-room.  That was one of the biggest benefits to having Salei was the alleviation of that home-sick from Pav in some small way.

Really don’t think he’ll resign when this contract is over.  At 35 he’ll head back to KHL and play a few more years and loving the shit out of it.  Talk about irreplaceable.
