    Why are some RSL players allowed to play in the world cup, and some others not ?

    good

    i'm glad PETROV and KOVALENKO are joining. petrov is a hard working guy and kovalenko wants to prove he can still play in the nhl. i'm kinda tired of all these high-price fedorovs whining about their INJURIES...its HOCKEY! suck it up! (and this is from a guy born in Ukraine)

    Oleg Petrov? I love the guy, but he's not World Caliber... He'll give his linemates a lot of energy, which I guess is more positive the more talent you get, but he basically skates in the offensive zone for a minute with the puck, then loses it in the corner.

    I've read somewhere that Frolov is ON the team, but he's not on the list ... weird.

    Wouldn't they have been better off getting a couple of youngsters who are hungry and want to prove themselves. This is just ugly.

    From what I read, I thought Russia was in worse shape than it really is. Their forwards are all talented, and their defense looks fully in tact, and if Nabby plays, than the loss of Habby doesnt matter. Or perhaps I am missing something? Do these departures make the teams chemistry better or worse? Any info. is greatly appreciated.

    Isn't that what's happening though? I know the current roster isn't as talented as it could be, but conversely, it looks harder working and more defensively responsible. This is going to be a tough tourney to win, for any team IMO.

    Well ok, maybe the Russians have a different way of thinking than we do, but don't complain, cause their roster is still plenty good.

    It could look something like this...
    Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Kovalev
    Samsonov-Yashin-V. Kozlov
    Zubrus-Ovechkin-Morozov
    Petrov-Kvasha-Afanasenkov

    Gonchar-A. Markov
    Kasparitis-Tverdovsky
    Vishnevski-Kalinin
    Volchenkov

    Nabokov
    Bryzgalov

    That looks like a pretty good team to me.

    On paper the Russians had a very scary team ... probably even more than the Canadians. But Bure got injured, and the rest of the team sucked on the ice.

    We'll see what these guys are capable of.

    Frolov Zhamnov Yashin
    Saprykin V.Kozlov Zubrus

    Gonchar Kasparaitis
    Zhitnik Zubov
    D Markov Malakhov
    A Markov Kalinin

    Khabibulin
    Nabokov
    Bryzygalov


    But you have this team.

    Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Kovalev
    Samsonov-Yashin-V. Kozlov

    Kovalenko Chubarov

    PETROV! :bow:

    This is just a treat for me even though I'm not a Russia fan.. he was my favorrite forward when he played for the habs.. maybe this could be a foot back into the NHL door for him if he can have a part in a couple of games..

    what does "rückt später nach" and "fällt ev. verletzt aus" mean?

    Morozov will not be playing. He's got a groin injury or something like that. Nabokov's knee is too bad and 99.9 % he won't play either.
