There were rumors last summer that Brashear would go to Russia, but then Slats swooped in and offered him the world instead. Lisin and Anisimov confirmed it in an interview last winter:

- About Donald Brashear: is it true that he speaks Russian and plans to play in the KHL? There were rumors that he could find himself with Chekhov Vityaz, a team that delights [fans] with physical play and frequent on-ice fights, while not forgetting the main task: scoring.

Enver Lisin.: Yes, he really wanted to play in the KHL, like you said, he could have found himself with Checkhov Vityaz, but the New York Rangers won out, apparently. Donald often asks us about Russia, so maybe a little later he will go and play in our country. He speaks Russian, but only a very little bit.

Artem Anisimov: Incidentally, he even has a teach-yourself-Russian CD in the his CD player.
