Where are they now?

Ever wonder what Igor Ulanov is up to? How about Cory Cross?

Yeah, me neither.

Still, I put together a FanHouse look at some unrestricted free agents from 2006 who disappeared from the NHL, likely for good, either fading into retirement or playing for Borschtenschnitzel in the Austrian league.

Consider this a word of warning, Patrik Stefan.

How could I wonder what Igor Ulanov was up to when his unofficial fanclub was so happy to keep us apprised of his activities in Yaroslavl over the last year?

Also, seven of those twenty are former Oilers, by my count. And that's not counting Daigle, whose rights it seems to me once passed through the Oilers' hands in some sort of deal involving Andrei Kovalenko and Alexander Selivanov. But I could be mistaken.

Anyway, what's with the Oilers and borderline NHL players? Oh, right: very few roster positions taken up by established, successful NHL players.

Guys like these are the reason I love the Spengler Cup. Revelations like "oh, so that's where Lonny Bohonos has been all these years!" make it an interesting counterpoint to the WJCs.

Apparently Mike Leclerc was in the Ducks pressbox during the playoff run and told some of the folks present that he was officially retired. Five surgeries on his knees and they were toast, he's lucky he can walk.

If Doug MacLean was still running the show in Columbus, these guys would be skating there.
