From the Russian teams there is already Fetisov in the Hall of Fame which no one will debate. Larionov is siad to be in there as well when he is eligible based on his international career and a good NHL career when he was past his prime for the most part (entered NHL at 29). Then you have Sergei Makarov who is always whispered around about being in the Hall which I think should be in there over Neely but anyways. But what about Vladimir Krutov and Kasatonov? Kasatonov played for a few years in the NHL but if he was there in the 80s when he was younger I think he would have put up a very good NHL career. Maybe not a Norris but some all-star selections for sure. He was 6'1" 220lbs. and was never a slouch when the Russians played the best Canadians in the world in Canada Cups. People forget that in the '87 Canada Cup in Game 2 vs. Canada in double OT he nearly ended it by splitting the defense but losing the puck before getting to the net. That replay is still scary to watch for me. Then there's Krutov. He was every bit as good as Makarov. People forget him, maybe because he only played one NHL season. He may not have had a long, long career when he was great but throughout the whole decade in the 80s he was arguably Russia's best player. Imagine him in the NHL? He was very complete. And he too nearly ended the '87 Canada Cup in Russia's favour in OT, multiple times. Thank God Fuhr had his number. But seriously why do neither one of these guys every get considered?
