He was our MVP until the point that he got hurt, and his injury affected us, no question. Walking away from the contract? No. I have the utmost confidence that he’s going to bounce back and have a phenomenal year. He’s going to keep our guys in the game, give our guys a chance to win, because they’re going to be young and they’re going to make some mistakes back there. He’s a great person, he’s made a mistake and he’s going to learn from it. He’s a better person than he was six months ago.That's Rick Olczyk talking about Nikolai Khabibulin. The MVP comment is absurd, as is the idea that the Oilers shouldn't walk out of this deal if they get the chance. Tyler Dellow's take on the situation is A+ infotainment made better by the fact that he's pilloried the Khabibulin signing since before it happened.
