Maybe Dany Heatley and Robert Leask should switch teams, so they'll both play for their country of birth. :lol

Bondra's family moved to Slovakia when he was a baby. Dave Undreychuk is Ukrainian too (along with a bunch of other Russian and Canadian-born players), but doesn't play for Ukraine because he is a citizen of another country.

Which is why people shouldnt consider them not playing for their birth country. And actual Russian born player isnt eligable for the draft until 2009.
