General Viktor Visilyevich Tikhonov. Thats what happened. Players confined to barracks when they werent playing & if he suspected a player might defect he'd generally leave them off the roster when playing tournaments in foreign climes. Didnt matter who they were nor how good to great the player. Wasnt taking any chances. And yes, if one of them did, family back home... might not be so good for them.
