The Storm's official site follows the Zara year in review with a look at Natalia Vodopyanova. Despite limited play and some less than favorable post season comments from Coach Donovan regarding Natalia's athleticism on the defensive side of the floor, Vodo presents a strong case with her +/- numbers for the season. She posted particularly strong numbers in a handful of games after the all-star break, but still posted a solid year with those games excluded. There is still doubt that the Storm included her on their protected list for the upcoming expansion draft, though she exists far enough under the radar that she is less likely than other players to be targeted by the Sky. We will see soon enough what action the Sun take, and which direction Coach Donovan heads in the upcoming 2006 draft and free agent market.
