    I hope he convinces the coach not to take any defensemen from the RSL.

    Never really thought of Bure to be capable of that kind of role. I guess we'll see.

    What do the HF Russian guys think about this? Does it give the team more credibility or whats the deal?

    for the sake of competition, I really hope he's able to assemble Russia's best. We need the rivalry back

    also, if you read Kovalev's comments in the TSN article, he doesn't seem too fond of Bure. did it just come out funny, or does Bure have a beef with some players? I would have thought they would be jumping for joy to be moving away from the Soviet-era management...

    You should have seen Kovalev's reaction on TSN's Sportscentre earlier - hardly a ringing endorsement..

    Yeah, I read something about Federov being a no-show just because Bure is going to be GM, something along the lines was also mentioned on the Russian section of HF. Whats up with that, did Bure and Federov have some negative history? I would think that Federov + Mogilny, Bure's old linemates would be linning up to be on the team now.

    I read the TSN article and thought "hm, those are weird comments." Then, I watched the actual interview with Kovalev and in person he was REALLY weird, the little shrug and facial after he ended his interview with "I dont have to deal with him" said it all... but I am not quite sure what.

    In any case, its not up to Kirkun now, Bure will be making the selections... and I have more confidence in his ability to pick a team than Kirkun's "the RSL is just as good as the NHL mentality." Bure was the captain of the Russian national team afterall, he is an ambassador of Russian hockey or at least the face of it, and he knows most players and the NHL as well as the RSL... seems like a good man for the job.

    I believe they had some issues over Anna Kournikova. She is after all the Russian equivalent to the Stanley Cup.

    Sadly for them, she ended up dumping them for a real man in Enrique Iglacias

    New generations mate: they will have to battle the current holder, Pavel Bure, for Sharapova.

    That shouldn't affect his GM abilities, how does he get along with the rest of the Russian players and Russian hockey federation?
