Alexeev Returns

TampaBayLightning.com is reporting the Bolts have brought back Nikita Alexeev.

Lukewarm: That is how I feel about this signing. Hopefully it works out and he somehow found a physical game (and heart, for that matter). If he signed a 2-way deal, there at least is a failsafe in that he will bring veteran leadership and NHL experience to the Falcons.

Svitov just signed in Colorado

so our one time Russian dynamic duo juggernaut will each get the shot to show the NHL what they can do. Dudley must have an itchy phone finger and overactive Siberian brain plotting to get these two in his clutches. Too bad Kournikova seems locked up with Iglesias rather than Russian hockey players these days.
