yep, won't play. there is a good article on nhl.com about sidney crosby and it says he (ovechkin) won't play, but doesn't give a reason.

(raises hand) I care. I won't be in Finland to watch any of the U20 games, but I will be in London to watch the Re-Max challenge game.

Ovechkin might not play in the WJC. He's on the senior national team.

Ovechkin have a leg injury. This is one of the reason he won't play in the challenge. But if he wasen't injured, I don't think the Dynamo Moscow would let him go. He is to important for the team.

The reason he isn't playing is because he is on the senior national team roster.

Does that really matter? It's not like that team is playing any games at the same time anyway.

It is not only Ovechkin won't play in remax it is whole Russian "A" U20 team won't play there. The reason is the regular season in RSL.

I find that kind of wierd. The Russians have the advantage in this tournament in terms of WJC preparation you'd think they'd use it.

Can't say I'm a fan of the Russian plans for this.

Why not? If I'm a top level Russian team I would not release my player to go and play in some little tournament if he is a big part of my team. The risk for injury is pretty great if you ask me, so why would Dynamo want to risk losing Ovechkin? And that is BESIDES the fact that he's injured and on the senior team.

The Russian plans are fine. It's a meaningless tournament.

And the Russians are sort of going for the "Superbowl of debates".If the Russian Prize is somehow defeated by the Canadian Priz, the Canadians will see it as a huge victory. But if the Russian Prize wins it won't matter because he was supposed to win anyway and it's not really an important tournament. So they wait for an official tournament to match Crosby vs. Ovechkin. Don't worry, Crosby will be there.
