And with him gone, why, why are substituting him with Nepryaev? How difficult is it to call Morozov?
What's the injury?
As for Morozov we don't know if he made himself available..
We already know that Morozov refused to be a replacement player, just like Korolyuk.
Korolyuk got in because of Zhamnov's injury, and as a result there was no chance Morozov would play.
Still, Krikunov had said that either Nepryaev or Grigorenko would be called up, but he prefered Nepryaev because he's training in Switzerland with his Russian team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.
But Ivan is rather green
What'd he hurt?
Den, maybe you should edit the title thread to something more explicit? Please?
Krikunov has roles for his players. Korolyuk's role is more of a checker, I do not see Morozov doing that as he is not that good defensively. I know Nepryaev is a defensive type of forward and I trust Krikunov's decision, finally there is a coach that has some sort of a gameplan.
Darn, is he out for the tournament, or just next game? (Assuming they go on farther...)
out of tourney
There are two games to play in any case...
I saw him leave the game in the 3rd period. How serious is it, no chance of him coming back for the next game a la Datsyuk, Volchenkov, and whoever else is playing hurt? Can we get a link please?
Even though I can read it, I can't understand it.
Care to translate?
Blah, blah, blah, Korky out with a groin injury and will be replaced with Ivan Nepryaev from Lokomotiv, currently practicing in Switzerland.
Khabibulin (which Im thankful for), Zhitnik, Frolov, and Korolyuk all out. This one hurts especially since Korolyuk has been one of Russia's better players. Anyone care to give us the lowdown on Nepriyev or whatever, who wasnt really a strong candidate to make the Olympic team from the getgo... why not call Brylin, Morozov, Zherdev, or something? They could be here by the time we play Finland. I guess the North American guys would take a while to adjust, but im sure the RSL has more to offer than Lokomotiv's best.
At least you saw right (so did I). Bob "old" Cole thought it was Smyth that left for the dressing room even though the player that left was blatantly wearing a RED FRICKEN JERSEY!!!
Cole has got to go!!!
Yeah, our "utility" players are sure getting utilized fast.
Losing Korolyuk sucks, but we'll deal, I think.
Well, Korky has been very usefull, but not a goal scorer as he should be. Nepryaev is a defensive forward, played in the last WC. But of course there's no question that there are equivalent or slightly better substitutions from RSL: Chistov, Kudermetov, Zaripov, Grigorenko. He must have some raport with Taratukhin who was quite sharp on defence, and has been winning some face-offs, may be that's the deal... But then Antipov or But would be as good, and they are better scorers. I'd probably take Antipov actually since they play on the same line with Taratukhin.
Oh, I remeber that one
We had 0 centers in 4th line, now we have 2 :
why is it nepryaev instead of grigorenko? i guess b/c nepryaev is a better defensive player? i think grigorenko was an all-star at a tournament when he played w/ datsyuk and kovalchuk? has he not recovered fully from the accident?
I guess it's because full squad of Yurznivov's Lokomotive is training in Switzerland now
Well, he isn't realy a center, in fact they play with Taratukhin on one line ocasionally
There are players in line even ahead of Grigs. Grigs is slowly coming back to his old self, but he's not there yet.
