Any other UFA's for the teams sound like they won't be playing either.

Chistov might get his shot here.

I'd probably take him, Korolyuk, and Zherdev.

If winning were the top priority for the Russians Zherdev would already be on the team. His battle with the RIHF means he'll be blackballed for the forseeable future.

They'll continue with the politics and take Russian league players. I'm thinking Morozov for sure and then some suprises, maybe Malkin, Mikhnov, Zinoviev...

I remember, Morozov said he won't play for Russia by the World Cup, but I'm not really sure!

Interesting enough, Zherdev says he'll return to CSKA in the case of a lockout.

KAKOY PAZOR!!!!


I cannot believe my fellow russians.... They have no pride or honor at all anymore... very disturbing... No wonder our country is in such shape now it all starts with little things.. like athletes turning the opportunity to play for motherland!! I guess Team RUSSIA will be a big underdog this tournament

Zherdev, Frolov, Malkin should replace these three. Maybe Chistov.

Does Saprykin have a chance? he goes along with the utility forward mentality that the WC teams are taking and is certainly going to do more at an NHL level than Malkin or Mikhnov

I'm thinking Korolyuk, Morozov, Zherdev if they can get him but if not then Chistov or Frolov.

Due to his free agent status, they are saying Zhitnik might be out too...
This is a shame. I love it when Canada takes on a skilled Russian team. They'll still be good, but it's starting to look a bit like this is the Russian "B" team.

I know these 3 are out for contract reasons, but so many have said no for other reasons. It's sad that not many are willing to represent their homeland.

I'm actually liking this somewhat. It lowers competition but hopefully all these younger Russian players will play their heart's out and try to show up the established stars with pure grit and effort. Or so I'm hoping

So what's the center situation looking like for Russia now? Yashin, Datsyuk, and Chubarov?

Wow.

I guess next on the list should be Nikolishin and Saprykin? I can't think of who else could go...Brylin? Hmmm...

Agreed.
It might actually be a blessing in disguise. They dont have to worry about as many clashing superstar egos.

It could also be a chance for some Russian league players to shine.

This, I think they can cope with...but i'm still quite worried about the goaltending.

Bilyaletdinov said in a interview that his centers are going to be :

Yashin, Datsyuk, Viktor Kozlov, Zubrus and Chubarov.

Oleg Petrov and Andrei Kovalnko replaced Fedorov and Zhamnov.... I've never thought that Russian federation is so stupid. Those 2 former overworked NHLers are a "young move"?!!!! WOW!
