Former Ottawa Senators goalie Ray Emery has signed a one-year deal with Atlant Mytishchi of the new Russian Continental Hockey League. The deal is reportedly worth in excess of $2 million plus bonuses. Brochu's take: This was pretty obvious as none of the teams looking for goaltending even went near the guy. Maybe he can get his act together and come back to the NHL in 2009-2010.
