Russian Olympic Rosters on Paper (1998-2010)
 
What is the best Roster on paper, place each year in order from best to worst. I have included the lines used at these events (Confident on the 1998 and 2002 lines but not 100% sure on the 2006 and 2010 lines).

How do you think the projected 2014 team stacks up against the previous four rosters.

Doing this made me hate Larionov oh so much more :laugh::laugh:

Quote:

`They're millionaires now, and they think they're big stars,'' said Bure, who will represent his country. ``How are they going to listen to a coach who makes $10,000 or $20,000? I don't think they're acting like professionals. It's not fair to the coaches.'' The Russian 1996 World Cup team was a fairly disorganized bunch with lots of lineup changes between games. It was said that the coach (Boris Mikhailov) was a mere puppet, with a "mafia" led by Fetisov and Larionov pretty much making all the decisions.

Defensemen :

Kasparaitis - Tyutin

Sergei Fedorov, Alexander Mogilny and Sergei Zubov turned down offers to play for the national team. Interestingly the 2004 World Cup of Hockey (meaningless exhibition tournament) had Khabibulin, Sergei Fedorov, Alexei Zhamnov and Danny Markov, Zubov refuse to participate because Larionov was blocked in his attempt to run the Russian entry for the 2004 World Cup. :laugh:

Markov - Nikulin.
Kalinin - Volchenkov.

What do you mean the 2004 World Cup was a meaningless exhibition? That it was played before the season started? I think there were some very good hockey played there, as in 1996. By that metric the Canada Cups also becomes meaningless exhibitions. Blasphemy.

I think Malkin played with Kharitonov and Sushinsky in 2006.

Whether or not you are a fan of the World Cup, any tournament with that much talent is hardly meaningless. Besides the Russian line up for the '04 WCup is comparable to those for the Olympics mentioned above.

Alexei Yashin
Andrei Kovalenko
Artem Chubarov
Dainius Zubrus
Dmitry Afanasenkov
Ilya Kovalchuk
Maxim Afinogenov

It was a good tourney, but when Russia's top 2 centers and top goalie from 2003/2004 turned down the invitation to play, the whole thing lost a bit of importance, especially in the fans' eyes.
