*Yakushev is, of course, a living legend.
*Zimin was a good little player with great speed. Same goes for Anisin.
*Blinov had loads of potential early on but eventually didn't amount to much.
*Volchkov's the father of Washington's 1996 draft bust by the same name.
*Semak scored the OT winner in game 1 of '87 Canada Cup - a serviceable 2/3 line player later in his career in NHL.
*Davydov's skill set was downright insane, but he had little between the ears...not a lot of hockey sense. Could probably put on a clinic in a charity/pick-up type game though.
*'92 starting goalies were Shtalenkov and Trefilov
Fedz yes the 1992 Oylimpic goals were Shtalenkov and trefilov.
I have all there games on video.
As for Semak and Davydov they played here in Brooklyn last year in a Exhibition game
I met them both great guys and well i hope your a good players because these dudes are still VERY VERY good players. Davydov has got some sick sick hands.
Please let me know when and were are you playing them?? Is there any info on the game?? any websites??
I wanna see if they are comming back to NY agian, i really enjoyed watching them got to meet alot of guys Yakushev goloikov semak dayvdov (Butsayev gave me his stick) Byakin and sooo many more had a great time.
Ok if you can get more info on the game and if there touring please let me know
I'll try to figure some more information out. I know that the "Moscow Bears" travel to a tournament abroad every year and this year they're in Vancouver. We are just playing a exhibition game before the tournament starts.
I've been told that they are a very skilled and smart team despite their age, but figured there'd be no better place to ask than here on these forums.
