Farewell, Jaroslav Balaštík :(

Those goddamn Blow Jackets. Not only do they drive Jaroslav Balastik out of the NHL, but they drive him into the arms of the evil Swedes.

Český hokejista Jaroslav Balaštík (na snímku) se ze zámořské NHL vrací do Evropy a do konce sezony by měl hájit barvy vedoucího týmu švédské ligy HV 71. Sedmadvacetiletý útočník tak vyřešil svou nejistou pozici v Columbusu Blue Jackets, kde v této sezoně nedostával mnoho příležitostí.
Basically, Czech hockey player Jaroslav Jaroslav Balaštík will finish the season with Swedish team HV 71. You can imagine how thrilled I am at this news.

You know Jaroslav probably ain't coming back to the NHL, and never given a second (real) chance. Jaroslav is a goal scorer, yet the Dinner Jackets saw it fit to give him 10 minutes a night playing with the likes of Jody Shelley and other scrubs who couldn't make an accurate pass the puck if their lives depended on it.

His final NHL totals:

05-06 66 12 10 22 -1 26 7 1 0 0 2 158 .076
06-07 8 1 1 2 -3 4 1 0 0 0 0 6 .167
Career74 13 11 24 -4 30 8 1 0 0 2 164 .079

Now, excuse me while I get Wayne Brady on Doug MacLean's ass.

I dont doubt his potential, but you have to wonder why every other team didnt make a move for him, or offer a trade considering teams are always looking for young cheap players..
Not just this, but Jan Hejda's been sent down, too. Just watch the fan exodus begin.
