Even though, the guy is 09 World Champ and works with Russian kids every Summer.

Typical USSR era types of attitude. Nothing changes, Russia is back to 1970
Considering there's more freedom of speeech in Russia now than in the US I wouldn't say it's the US that made Ilya that way. And this isn't a misconception I know both countries all to well. Ilya was known for his mouth when he was a kid. His critisizm is really sometimes over the edge, regarding he is living in the US for some time now and his summer vacations aren't really enough to know what's going on in Russia. That's exactly the reason for people to get annoyed of his remarks. They don't want to hear it from somebody who doesn't even live in the country. Although you definitely have to draw a line between "patriots" you meant by putting it in quotation marks who really are just dumb jerks you'll probably find anywhere and people who take Ilya's words seriosly. I'm far from calling him a traitor or something but he isn't always right when he's talking about Russia. Being a russian athlete playing in the US and talking to the media he should represent his country let's put it that way. He has put himself in that position, he just doesn't want to accept it.

I truly apreciate your honest opinion, and your level headed approach.

Your knowledge of the current situation in Russia is that something I lack with my posts and comments, and that is exactly what I was asking for.

However, as much as I agree with you on most of your statement we will, probably, agree to disagree on some points.

Also, your English is impecable, so please feel free to provide correction to my translations. I would really appreciate that.

You are absolutely right about Olympics being utmost important sporting event and I do believe that the NHL has to reconsider its attitude toward letting the players to play for their countries.

However, I agree with Iliya on that: contractually bound professionals must not promis something that will violate their contract.

I hope that there will be an Olympic brake in the NHL schedule for 2014, or that Russian players will be able to negotiate legal leave of absence from their clubs to defent their Motherland colors.

I assume by aviation security you mean aviation safety... do you really think he's incorrect? Russia does seem to have a higher proportion of plane crashes than other countries. 119 people dead so far in 2011, according to MSNBC News (quoting from Aviation-safety.net). Is it wrong for him to be commenting about that? Also, mentioning drinking habits in Russia is not unreasonable. I think that he is doing a very good thing in mentioning this problem. The more high-profile people call attention to the problem, the more pressure will be put on officials to try to fix it. I'm very glad that Ilya is an outspoken guy; I think the league needs people like him.

Off the topic of the interview, I'm a Red Wings fan but I'm going to have to adopt Philly as my second team this year. I've been a big Bryz fan since his Anaheim days and watching the first two games of the season, I really like your guys' style.

Bryzgalov's situation is kind of interesting. From what I have heard he does not come to the national team unless guaranteed the starter's spot, which is a bit strange given that he underperformed in many important games and the difference between him and other goalies is not that huge, and has been otherwise a bit harsh in his interviews. In such a circumstances I would almost expect that a tough coach like Biljaletdinov will prefer to go to Sotchi with some less conflict prone person like Varlamov or Barulin and even Nabokov might be ahead of Bryzgalov in his books.

I don't know about that. He showed up for the Olympics, where he should have been the starter and wasn't. Nabokov will likely be retired by then.

A lot of his humor is tautological or literal. It's funny:

What if he fought you? Then I would've fought him.

What is your trump card? Ace of diamonds.


This passage was also striking:

Quote:
Q: It is promised that they will switch to better planes in Russia.

A: Do you really believe in that?

Q: Do you?

I don't know much about Ilya's reputation in Russa. Is it pretty tarnished, or what?

Bryzgalov is best goalkeeper of Russia at the moment. I hope the season for him to be successful.
