Vyacheslav Kozlov signs with Atlanta

Normally I wouldn't be posting about an ex-Wing years from his last skate with the Winged -wheel, but this was interesting to me. If you remember, Kozlov was traded to Buffalo for Hasek in his first stint with the Wings. There, Kozlov struggled and ultimately tore his Achilles Tendon. This is not any ordinary muscle tear, and some doctors feared he would be unable to play again. He came back, and found his way to Atlanta. Last season, he had great success with 70 points, 49 assists and 21 goals. We traded Kozlov mainly because he was inconsistent and his tendency to play well in the playoffs was becoming more of a legend than a reality in his later seasons with the Wings. I am happy to know that Kozlov has found his game and come back from a very serious injury. Way to go Kozzie!!!!!!
