I suppose anything can happen, but he has publically stated (again) very recently that he would represent the U.S. in international competion. There is obviously a history there (Ivan Hlinka) and as far as I know Russia doesn't appear to have made any effort to bring him in the fold. As for the Larionov angle, it's been said that he's urged him (for professional reasons) to play of the U.S.
