Ulie rises again!


Starting in November, Ulanov will be wearing a jersey for Mikhnov's old team, Yaroslavl. I'm sad to see him leave Canada, but if it means that I'll get to obsessively follow his hockey career again, I'm all for it. I really missed his angelic on-ice moves. It's been too long.

I guarantee that the young guns over in the elite league will learn a thing or two from the seasoned hands of Igor Ulanov. They too will develop mighty battle scars on their faces. Perhaps I will one day lust after them. But not likely, for they will be far too young for my tastes. And nobody will ever be as deliciously robust.

He may pull a Reijo Ruotsalainen and return at playoff time.

Just saying.

I'm thinking more like a Gordie Howe.

Playing with his grandsons years from now.

If anyone can, it would be Ulanov.

...because he ages so gracefully.

One of my faves, "The Crypt Keeper".

One of my friends mentioned during last year's BOA on New years (in which Ulanov played excellent by the way) that he looks like he is slowly decomposing after every shift.

I had a hard time disagreeing.

Did he play in BOTH games during the Heritage classic?

Glad to see he'll still be playing...but that it's not with the Oilers. Good luck to you, Uly!!!

I hope he returns. I always enjoyed his physical play. And of course his hockey play! :)
