    Who doesnt russia have to play center if Fedorov and Zhamnov don't play at the world cup for them? Do y'all think Malkin may get to play in lieu of those two? I'm drawing a blank on russian centers.....Svitov, V.Kozlov(c/rw if I remember correctly)...ehh, what do y'all think?

    Zubrus spent most of last season at center.
     
  4. sort of thin down the middle now w/o Zhamnov & Fedorov for sure, but still look pretty damn good to me--


    Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Kovalev
    Samsonov-(Viktor) Kozlov-Zubruis
    Ovechkin-Chubarov-Afinogenov
    Kvasha-Yashin-V. Bure

    Gonchar - A. Markov
    Kasparitis - Malakhov
    Tverdovsky – Khavanov
    (Vishnevski)

    Nabokov
    Sokolov

    Malakhv won't be there, he put an end to his international career 2 years ago.

    And I'm not sure what Kovalev's position ... will he play if Fedorov, Zhamnov, Khabibulin and Markov do not?

    With Zhamnov and Fedorov leaving, that would open up a spot for Nikolishin. The guy is an extremely valuable utility/defensive center. I don't know if he would accept the invite after initially not being chosen.

    this is a shame, honestly this tourny should be showcasing the best of the best and now Russia is depleted and this is sad.
