We feel your pain.


It's the end of the road (tracks?) for the Lokomotiv of the fine city of Yaroslavl. They were knocked out in 4 games (which isn't a sweep in the Russian Superleague, if you're paying attention). From the account of our Yaroslavl correspondant, the city got drunk to ease its pain.
Months will heal wounds, until you see a picture of Rod Brind'Amour holding the cup and then the rush of negative emotions will start anew. I hope that each of you receives a game-worn Ulanov jersey in the mail today. It will offer you a temporary escape from your grief. You can trust me on that one.
The future of Ulanov's hockey career is once again up in the air. I am sad.

Igor did his job: 4 points, no games as a minus, and penalty minutes which means he brought it physically. Looks like shitty goaltending was the culprit (thanks Igor Podomatsky and Semen "top prospect" Varlamov)

Easy there kiddo, I was at both home games and I can't say that Varlamov was the reason they fell apart. (the only game Egor played they won) Omsk was better and Ulanov, as much as he is loved, did fall on his butt on a breakaway from the penalty box.. Word is he's staying here (in yaro) next year...

Sorry, forgot to mention that Ulanov was indeed very good in the playoffs, and that his passes led to some great scoring chances in all of the games. He was only on the ice for 4 goals against during the entire playoff. Not bad at all.

Thanks for the news! I hope that he stays there next year. For completely selfish reasons.

Obviously I didn't get to see any of the games, so I was just jumping to conclusions about goaltending based on the score line.

But that's great news that Ulanov might stick around for another season.

Harvey does have a nice stash, indeed.

I saw this sexy man. He has no speed, when he run, seems that his skates are small. BUT he�s always quiet like a snake. BUT he always stand up for young keeper Semen and made good assists! Anny
