Ramo is about the same age (actually 7 months younger) as Cervenka. I imagine as 2 of the 4 non-Russians on the Omsk team, they probably developed quite a friendship and Ramo may be envious of Cervenka moving to the NHL.
This is a pretty legitimate point. I was thinking maybe Ramo influenced Cervenka's decision to sign with the Flames?
