Would be hilarious though.
Agreed, I doubt it would happen as well.
The IIHF could ban them, but aren't guaranteed to. There'd be a lot of pressure from Russia, especially since the Olympics are there, to let them play. I don't believe Radulov is banned, and he did the same thing. Granted, he wasn't as big a star.
