Yes he bas been allowed to play for RUssia by an IIHF ruling from March 25, 2004.
This ruling was a consequence of last summer's IIHF rule change : a player can now change countries if he meets 2 conditions : 1/ he must be a citizen of the country he wants to change for (Nabokov is Russian) 2/the player must have spent at least 4 years playing in one of this country's National leagues (Nabokov did spend more than 4 years in Russia).

I hope this question is never asked again!

Im the only one who think that Fedorov will be on the team to 100 % ? Just look at hes bad season and look back to 98 Nagano ! Na ? similar ? - I have absolutely NO respect for this man

But damn what about Zubov, Kozlov or Mogilny ? Thats the actual problem ............we need them so much

Zhitnik won't play for Russia?

Too bad cause him and Kalinin are a awesome pair. I'm a huge Kalinin fan btw.

Also what about Yuskie? Isn't he better then freaking Kaspar?
