I kind of have a feeling Ovechkin may turn down the WC, hopefully Varlamov dosnt though.
You think Semin would "waste a spot"?

I agree that he was abysmal in the playoffs (1 point, I mean come on...). But in 2008 he led Team Russia with 13 points in the WC.

Also, the WC is not played at nearly as high a skill level as the NHL playoffs, so Semin should be fine.

Still, I wonder if Radulov has not surpassed him on our list of RWs, as a result.

Both are head and shoulders above Afinogenov, that much is for sure.
