Let me ask you, would you want to play for the Edmonton Oilers, for example? [laughter] Let me tell you that when you have a choice and you have something to choose from, you always want to play for a good team.

That's Evgeni Nabokov explaining why he decided to sign with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL. I'd just like to point out that his derision of Edmonton didn't include a single thing about the city itself, the weather, or the fans. It did mention winning though, and with a roster that includes Nabokov, Denis Grebeshkov, Sergei Zubov, Alexei Yashin, and Maxim Afinogenov, I'm pretty sure SKA has a much better chance of winning in the KHL than the Oilers do in the NHL. And if we're really being honest, SKA is probably just the better team too.
