Oh well we didnt really need him anyway allthough it would have been nice. Another spot opens up to a young defensemen trying to make the team.
"According to Sport Express, former New York Ranger Sergei Zubov, who’s spent the last dozen years playing in the Lone Star State with the Dallas Stars, is close to signing with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL. The paper reports that the 39-year old defenseman has received interest from nine NHL clubs and several teams in Russia, and has even considered retirement, but could now be days away from signing with SKA and head coach Barry Smith. If true, Zubov would join another former Ranger, Darius Kasparitis, on patrol on the St. Petersburg blueline."
