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...
