Dubie Going To Russia

The Connecticut Post is reporting that former Islander and DU All American Wade Dubielewicz has signed with Kazan of the former Russian Super League now known as the Kontinental Hockey League.

Good luck to Dubie!

The Connecticut Post has this at the very end of their article on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Wade Dubielewicz, the former Sound Tigers goalie who backed up for the Islanders the past two seasons, signed with Kazan in Russia.

I am glad for his opportunity to play and gain experience, but my heart is breaking.

Ak Bars Kazan is a very well capitalized team, and he will be making much more money (1- 1.5M?) as a starter there than as a $500-750K NHL backup.

It's a good move for him. The guy needs to play...

who gives a shit, the KHL is trying to pluck all these NHL players to create a rival league due to the fact that there is no transfer agreement currently. Hence Malkin, Jagr, Dubie, Zyuzin, Grahame, and possibly many more as we enter free agency. They can afford to pay these players much more than the NHL because many of these teams are owned by local oil companies who are willing to shell out millions to snag up quality NHL players. It's not a playing time issue, its a money issue with the players.
