Caps players playing in leagues nobody cares about...
 
Ze latest news was that AO won't play for Dynamo because they couldn't even contact him or his agent. Chesnok is 99% sure it's CSKA. However, Spartak (who's pursuing Kovalchuk) has signed Leonid Ovechkin for 2 years.

So with the dream of Semin-Dats-Ovi gone, due to Semin with Loko and it not being possible, we will see Ovi with Datsyuk? Or is that a dream and Datsyuk probably won't sign there or do you think he will sign there if Ovi does?

Acallabeth 09-16-2012 03:30 AM

Datsyuk is rumoured to be negotiating with Avtomobilist from his hometown Yekaterinburg.
So yeah, the dream combo likely won't be assembled. At least CSKA has Radulov now.

If Ovechkin isn't playing with a great center I would rather him go to Traktor...

Acallabeth 09-16-2012 03:56 AM

Well, Radulov is a winger, but a very good playmaker, so it's not that bad of an option. Playing with Kuznetsov would of course be fun to watch.
But Ovy may just be preparing for his birthhday party right now, not thinking about stupid lockout and contracts.

Where will Ovi play?

SimplySensational 09-17-2012 02:37 AM

Russian sports writers seem pretty certain Ovechkin will be in CSKA, with some suggesting Semin and Datsyuk will go too.

Tobias Enstrom has said unless the SEL opens up to NHL players, Leksand could be a choice.

Datsyuk signed with Ak Bars Kazan.

edit. Though Khan is usually very reliable on Wings related stuff, Datsyuk's agent said that he hasn't decided yet. So I guess CSKA is still possible.

Acallabeth 09-17-2012 04:36 AM

Ak Bars posted on their web site that they're not planning to sign any NHL players, because there's no certainty yet about how long will lockout last. Idk whether it's true, Lysenkov was very sure about it.
The funny thing is, during the last lockout Ak Bars was so stacked many NHL teams would be jealous. And a 1st round PO exit, maybe they don't want that to repeat.

On top of that Ovechkin is negotiating with Dynamo...

Acallabeth 09-17-2012 09:52 AM

Now Russian journalists don't deny possibility of reuniting Ovechkin - Datsyuk - Semin in CSKA :naughty:

SimplySensational 09-18-2012 05:55 PM

Just as I figured... Dynamo Moscows GM was posturing, apparently Ovechkin has signed there and deal will be announced soon.

txpd 09-18-2012 06:25 PM

will dynamo let ovechkin play at 270lbs?

Maybe my sarcasm wasn't as noticeable as i was trying to make it.

No, a lockout is not good for this team.

Really? He's that big? That's Chara sized. Joking.

My concern is that Ovechkin gets injured. Even with insurance that will be a big loss for the Capitals. He really does sell seats, jersey's etc. He is the sizzle.

InjuredChoker 09-19-2012 10:15 AM

Dats and Ovy to CSKA, apparently. Hope Datsyuk can teach Ovy some new tricks.

Liberati0n* 09-19-2012 10:18 AM

The Russian media must really be terrible.

apollo71426 09-19-2012 11:15 AM

Does anyone know when Ovechkin would start playing for Dynamo?

I am going to try and watch some of the Dynamo Moscow games, is anyone else going to try and watch the KHL games? I am going FRS will have the games streaming. The only hard part is that they are 8 hours ahead of time...

http://en.khl.ru/calendar/222/09/3991/

That is Dynamo Moscow's schedule for September if anyone else is interested.

SimplySensational 09-19-2012 02:47 PM

Datsyuk still isn't confirmed, so there is hope he goes to Dynamo, which is where he played last lock out.

Though I think not being with a highly skilled center could work for Ovechkin. Get him back to his days of great individual plays, get back on the bike and remember how he did it before.

SimplySensational 09-19-2012 04:06 PM

Ovechkin may play tomorrow against Dinamo Minsk. Starts at 11:30 AM EST, if he doesn't play, Traktor will playing at the same time.

Semin 09-19-2012 05:52 PM

Stick handling in close to his body seems like his old self.
