Edmonton Journal has a good article up on Tulupov... I think he could be a good player for us here if the coaches can get him under control and playing smarter rather than always looking for the big hit (a la Ulanov). ... -ej_oilers

Having Larionov as an agent is a heck of a big deal though. Great guy, and I think he can help him get back on the right track as an NHLer.

That article is a little extra cool in that it gives you a glimpse into him personally a bit. Makes me like him a bit more. He speaks very good english and doesn't really have good things to say about his recent experiences with several leagues/teams (KHL, VHL, Kazakhstan league). Sounds like he really has his heart here in North America.
