    The NHL wont be the same without the man, the myth, the legend Ruslan Fedotenko. The Pens still haven’t been back to the Cup since he left, coincidence?

    Yes, it was a coincidence that Feds left the same year that Scuds left. SCUDS WAS THE PIECE….

    $1.25 million a year (with less tax) for three years in the KHL. Good for him.
    Seems like only yesterday I watched Feds and Fedoruk playing for Mike Haviland in Trenton. My how time flies.

      Try $3 million/year for 3 years. Unless of course you were saying $1.25 million more

      The guy earned this. Never complained; never asked for a lot of money; always showed up. Solid on the PK. Hated to see the Rangers let him go. Time to cash in at home.
