A wee bit of action on the free agent market today.
Vladimir Sobotka took a look at the whole arbitration process and said, “See ya later!”
Sobotka signed with a KHL team, presumably for a fat sack of cash, though we don’t have details on that just yet. It’s hard to really blame him for cashing out considering he was going to be in tough for minutes with Jori Lehtera brought in as competition. So with the team nickel and diming him the writing was kind of on the wall.
It just sucks for fantasy owners to lose Sobotka after a career year like that. He scored just 33 points
