DISCLAIMER: I do not know Pavel D. nor do I own him. This is fiction.

SUMMARY: It's Pavel's turn.

NOTES: This is how I see Pavel.

-----

I may be a man of few words
but let me ask you this:
What did you expect?
Did you expect us to roll out --
the red carpet
and welcome you back -
with open arms?
Did you expect us to actually miss you?
We don't miss you.
Not at all.
We have a better record than you
and we have better goaltending too.
And we don't need you anymore.
Maybe we never did.
Did you expect me to say that?
I don't think you did.
I'm glad you left.
Now it will be my turn.
Do svidanye,
Sergei.
Good bye.
