Yeah he would. In 2010, Russia took a lot of heat for not playing Bryzgalov, and threw Nabokov under the bus. That's a long time ago now, all considered, but Russia doesn't have much in the way of goaltending, you could see a Bryzgalov-Bobrovsky reunion in Sochi.

Russians love Russia more than life itself, it's been a dream to these guys to play in the Olympics for Russia, in Russia.
