    Well I don't know what to say anymore. Russia's hockey federation is a big mess, and they simply can't do their job. May25th was too early for the Russians, and they were granted one more week to make things clear regarding their coaching staff and players. :banghead:

    That's so pathetic ... typical Russian s-h-i-t!!! :mad:

    I can't freaking stand those buttheads especially that Steblin sucker who totally pisses me off :banghead: :mad:

    The full story in Russian can be found >>> HERE <<<

    I think people are going to be really disappointed when they see the quality (or lack thereof) of both the Russian and Czech World Cup teams. I think both are going to suffer from a severe lack of getting the best players possible.

    Yesterday Slava Fetisov had a meeting with Alexander Steblin at the Sports ministry. Noone knows what has been said, but it's obvious that Fetisov is putting pressure on Steblin and forces him do the right things!

    Fetisov can't coach the team because he's the Russian sports minister.

    Larionov would be a logical pick though, and get assistants Tretiak and Yurzinov, and Alexei Kasatonov as the GM.

    But it looks more like the 2006 Olympic staff.

    Larionov doesn't want to be coach....he wants to be GM of the team, pick the team then make Robinson the head coach.

    This is it! The roster and coaching staff will be announced on

    Friday, May 28th

    It's almost certain that Vladimir Yurzinov will be named Russia's head coach.

    I just read it in Sovetsky Sport.

    And there's also a very intresting interview of Slava Fetisov, who met Steblin earlier this week. Steblin asked him for help like in 2002.
