There is a reliable like there, but the summary will only do you good unless you can read Russian.

It's an interview with Danny Markov. He says that his shoulder was originally injured 2 weeks before his trade to Philly and then re-injured in the Toronto series. He says he told the Russian Hockey Federation about his injuries when he conditionally gave his agreement to play in World Cup. But apparently they more or less ignored or forgot that fact and generally treated him as committed to World Cup play no matter what. That attitude reinforced his perception of the Russian Hockey Federation as chaotic and unorganized which is his primary motive for refusing to play in the World Cup (he says he wouldn't play even if the injury wasn't there because of the attitudes and general chaos).

He says that his decision not to play is final. He also goes on to say that Larionov should've been named the general manager for the Russian team. At the bottom of the article there're quotes from Khabibulin saying that he won't play and from Nabokov saying that it's very possible that he won't play either.

Had Slava Fetisov been running the show, there wouldn't be such a mess, but for some reason he is in the Russian government.
