Bit of a stretch in my opinion, but this shows how highly regarded he was at the time. As for his time on defense, I understood it to be about his versatility, not about his lack of effort. He was a class act in my opinion.
It was both. He was versatile but he also complained a lot, specially about ice-time. Bowman responded by giving him ice-time on defense.
Fedorov was amongst the best in the league for about three seasons. He quickly fell off as a regular season player. When it comes to him and Kelly, Kelly is ahead when it comes to importance, peak and overall skill to the Red wings franchise.
