- says it would be interesting to play the WC in Kiev, but can't due to possibility of playoffs. Obviously never made the playoffs that year with LA anyway.

He does get interviewed enough by the Ukrainian press it seems....digging through more stuff...


As for Fedotenko, didn't his entire family move to the US? He's an American citizen now. He's stated its unlikely he ever plays for Team Ukraine again due to scheduling, and that his life is in the US now.

It'd be nice to see at least one of them play for Ukraine again. Ponikarovsky is a Canadian citizen now so I'm not sure what he thinks about actually playing for them again.
