Am I insane?
No. Besides the fact that Ovechkin and Malkin didn't play together that WJCs (but made the forth line on WC 2005 the same season) I consider this to be very good idea. He made great contribution in both tournaments (on small ice by the way), progresses each year, has a drive. Though it is rather outside chance that Shirokov will crack the roster in 2010. We have a number of quality wingers: Ovechkin, Semin, Frolov, Zherdev, Kovalchuk are sure bets, as well as Morozov and Zaripov. Then you have veterans: both Kozlovs, Kovalev, Yashin and Korolyuk; young guns: Radulov, Kulemin and Lisin all competing for one spot on wing. Not to mention that Afinogenov or Samsonov may have a good start next year, Perezhogin suits well on bottom lines. So I would like to see Shirokov as 13th forward.

Yeah, depth at winger isn't a problem.

Depth at Center however...

I don't think that it is a problem, when all key players are healthy (even without S. Fedorov). Malkin - Datsyuk one-two punch is as good as everyone's else, including Canada. Together they will play 40+ min a night and participate in all deciding situations. So that leave about 10 min for each of two other centermen, chosen from Zinoviev, Tereschenko, Chubarov, Svitov, Brylin. All of them are responsible two-way players, whom I have no problem showing against other countries' 3-4 lines.
The main issue, however, is health of Malkin and Datsyuk - we don't have anyone to replace their role in present days.

Well, that's what I mean. What if Malkin and/or Datsyuk can't go?

We have some talented young Center prospects in Filatov, Anisimov, Grachev and Zubov. Hopefully, they develop well and quickly.

I'm not sure if Columbus is developing Filatov as a Center or Winger. I believe it's as a Center.

Filatov and Zubov are wingers nowadays; Grachev, at least on Team Russia, plays as a center, but he is far from Olympic or WC level. Anisimov is the closest one, but still too far away from roster - he should put something about 50-60 points pace with a strong two-way next season, to make the cut. Which is quite unlikely.

Filatov is playing as a Winger in the WJC, but I'm pretty sure Columbus is developing him as a Center.

I'm not expecting any of these prospects to develop before the Olympics.

I just hope they develop for the future.

As I've said in the previous post, I don't expect these guys to develop in time for the 2010 Olympics, but hopefully for the future.

They don't like Kovalev. They by-passed him last year for Worlds and I can't see their being little chance of them wanting him a year and a half later.

Ovechkin - Datsyuk - Semin
Kovalchuk - Malkin - Frolov
Zaripov - Zinovjev - Morozov
Perezhogin - Tereshenko - Radulov


(S. Fedorov, Kovalev, S. Kozlov, V. Kozlov, Yashin = too "old"?)

(Maybe Afinogenov, Zherdev, Sushinsky, Mozyakin, Korolyuk, Gorovikov, Kulemin, Schastlivy)


A. Markov - Gonchar
Tyutin - Volchenkov
Grebeschkov - Atyushov
Markov D - Kalinin

(maybe Zhitnik...who knows)


Nabokov
Bryzgalov
Varlamov

(Khabibulin = too "old")

Well, that's not exactly the case.

Bykov explained that by the time Kovy became available, they were already set at forwards.

I agree we do not have much dept at center position, however, the problem is fixable... Besides centers mentioned above, we can also ice, if we have to, Viktor Kozlov and Sergei Fedorov.

Milloy2 I am the one who started that post on Russians being more canadian like. and posted the video of the Russian kids fighting

That was meant to make a point of how Ridiculas fighting is. You jumped on this as if to say i was showing how great Russians were at fighting then pointed out how bad semin was and how your Canadian boys were gonna show us.

Agian the whole reason for that post was to show how Ridiculas things like that are!!
you didn't get it and you still don't get it.

Hockey is played with a stick and a puck ( Not with fists) it is to be played with skill speed and creativity not with dump and chase and goon tacticks.

Please stop wasting are time with your ridiculas posts

Here is a link to a forum i think is better suited for you
