Well, obviously there is a chance, but i'm just wondering if anyone has heard or read that he's on some type of shortlist for the team?

I'd love to see him there, he's my favorite player...
There's a definite possibility that he's gonna be there. I think it will mostly depend on WHO will coach the Russia World Cup team & how many D will simply decline the invitation. (see Tikhonov)

Sergei Gonchar
Sergei Zubov
Sandis Ozolinsh
Dmitri Kalinin
Oleg Tverdovsky even if he's not an NHLer anymore
Alexei Zhitnik
Andrei Zyuzin
Danny Markov
Vladimir Malakhov
Andrei Markov
Igor Ulanov
Boris Mironov
Fedor Tyutin
Anton Volchenkov
Darius Kasparaitis
& probably a few other in the Russia league.

If every D accept the invitation , I dont see Markov being there since they got all the fire power they got in Zubov, Gonchar, Ozolinsh as Off-D.

My bet would be Malakhov, Danny Markov as the #4-5.

#6-7-8 is on the coach vision I think.
