Anybody know what the lines are shaping up as and who'll have the letters?
I know that the captain is Yashin. The players voted him as their captain. The assistants are Kasparitis are Kovalev.
Not very surprising... Yashin is a whiny little baby whenever he doesn't have the C or A. They probably didn't want to hear him constantly complain in the locker room. =p
is he actually whiney, or does he just have this ugly stigma around him because of the situation in ottawa? ive heard he's a real class act...
I heard that he is whiney. I think I heard he refused to play at the 2002 world championship because Kovalenko was the captain. I'm not sure...
When he moved to the Islanders, he was constantly complaining because he felt he deserved an "A", even before he'd played a game with them. Eventually after a month or two, they gave Dave Scatchard's to him.
Samsonov - Yashin (C) - Kovalchuk
Ovechkin - Datsyuk - Kovalev
Kvasha - Kozlov - Zubrus
Afingenov - Petrov - Kovalenko
Afanasenkov - Kvasha - Frolov
Gonchar - Volchenkov
Tverdovsky - Kalilnin
Kasparaitus - Vishnevski
Khavanov - Markov
Really if players like Malakhov, Chistov, P.Bure, V.Bure, Nicholshin, Korovlev, the team would be lot
