Kachino 05-04-2008 12:13 AM

Kostitsyn brothers are from Belarus... Oh wait, it has been mentioned already... My bad...:sarcasm:

suprez 05-04-2008 12:14 AM

It's was at the *apres-match* . He said he asked Kovalev if he was joining team Russia.He said *they said i'm not fast enough*

I'm not quoting Kovalev but that what they said.I was totally shocked.

Adam91 05-04-2008 12:14 AM

Russia - its all politics, too bad Kovy would have made that team absolutley amazing to watch

Mathletic 05-04-2008 12:16 AM

I hope people from Montreal will come over to quebec city to watch a game

ToysInTheAttic 05-04-2008 12:20 AM

Well they did beat Canada handily in the exhibition game going into the World Championships, and the Russian team is extremely fast. Now that the Championships have started Canada remains the team to beat. Very strong line-up.

number 11 05-04-2008 12:26 AM

kovy won't play for Russia after they cut him from the team last year so the comment was probably directed towards them. i don't blame him.

Watsatheo 05-04-2008 12:29 AM

Hopefully none of Markov, Hamrlik, Kovalev, Komisarek, and Koivu go. Rest your *****. :D

Team Russia is basically full on RWs. If Kovalev played C, they would probably have a spot for him.

71 F KOVALCHUK Ilya
42 F ZINOVIEV Sergei
95 F MOROZOV Alexei

8 F OVECHKIN Alexander
29 F FEDOROV Sergei
28 F SEMIN Alexander

10 F MOZYAKIN Sergei
21 F GOROVIKOV Konstantin
33 F SUSHINSKIY Maxim

25 F ZARIPOV Danis
27 F TERESHCHENKO Alexei
61 F AFINOGENOV Maxim

One of the Team Russia coaches (Zakharkin) said last week that there are no spots at RW unless a player is injured. Edit: Ignore that bit on Ovechkin -- who is a LW; I confused him with someone else.

I suspect Team Russia will want Markov on D if he is healthy.

Ovechkin already had to switch to LW --which he doesn't play nearly as well-- because he was the last to join the team (due to insurance issues). One of the Team Russia coaches (Zakharkin) said last week that there are no spots at RW unless a player is injured.

I suspect Team Russia will want Markov on D if he is healthy.

Stupid.

Out of all right wingers in the NHL, only Iginla and Alfredsson had more points than Kovalev this season...

Lucius 05-04-2008 01:16 AM

They quoted Tretiak on TSN yesterday saying he was saving a spot for Nabokov and Kovalev, so he isn't too slow ;)

Mathieu21 05-04-2008 01:32 AM

I went to the Canada vs Russia game, it was awesome.

I MIGHT go to the final; the deal hasn't been completed yet.
