Can anyone speak to the military obligations that Ovechkin is going to be required to serve after being drafted? I read somewhere that he has already served them but I'm a little confused by it all. As Columbus plays out the rest of the season it is becoming more and more realistic that we might have a good shot at this guy. I like the thought of an all Russian line Ovechkin-Svitov-Zherdev in our future. So my question is this... IF there is no lockout next year could Ovechkin wind up in the U.S. or would he be required to stay in Russia?
