Deep enough title??? lol.....

Of course Irbe would end up coming back to the NHL at the end of the season and at the end I think irbes stats were better then the other goalies on the team. A similar thing happend when irbe struggled(... or lets say the WHOLE TEAM struggled so irbe gets the blame..)in 95-96 after the whole team really exploded with makarov not being signed, and larionov being mistreated. Leaving only ozo and irbe as the main dudes from the 94 team. Irbe would be sent to the minors, and when he came back that year he also was the best goalie on the shark team that year.... Anywho...

Irbe would then be signed with Columbus(which would have been nice cuz then I could have gotten to see him play more regularly)but alas the lockout happened so it wasnt ment to be. Played in the Olympics after that... Then played for a Slovakian or something, and apparently was not getting along wtih teammates, and the teammates didnt like them. And then got in fights? or something... and irbe ended up leaving the team after 6 games or something. Closing the chapter on this underrated goalies career. Lots of ups and downs during his pro career but to that I would say how many other goalies have done what irbe has done, WITH THE TEAMS he has done them for. Irbe played almost his entire career for below average teams, and 3 of those teams were some of the worst NHL teams ever PERIOD. So irbes stats are defiantly as they are padded against him.


Again its sad, cuz irbe is used as the butt end of many jokes it seems. And he doesnt deserve it. How many other goalies could have put up the numbers he did with the teams he played for?
