Serious question: Do CSKA and Dynamo not have training facilities in Moscow for use during their various teams' seasons? Would Ovechkin not be able to use at least the Dynamo ones? The photos seem to show him working out in a city, with coaches, and on a football practice field so I figured he would have been at his old club...
Regardless, I'd say that his "playboy lifestyle" may still be a step up on Mario's donuts, beer and pack-of-smokes-a-day training regime from his early career...
