    Why are they playing Ovechkin with Chubarov and Afinogenov? Think they should have a good center for Ovechkin for example Yashin or Datsyuk. I only like the line Samsonov - Kozlov - Kovalev. I´d rather see

    Samsonov-Yashin-Kovalev
    Kovalchuk-Kozlov-Kvasha
    Ovechkin-Datsyuk-Frolov/Zherdev
    Zubrus-Chubarov-Kovalenko/Frolov

    yeah, im kinda curious as to why yashin is down on the 4th line...seems like a bit of a waste of his talents down there, especially when the team has already lost a couple important skill players up front

    Dynamo connections. The coach knows all 3 players very well.

    Here is the full lineup from the 1st 2 days of training camp.
    The team split into 4 teams of 5 or 6 players, competing against each other.

    The best unit proved to be Samsonov, Kozlov and Kovalev, followed by Yashin's line.

    SAMSONOV – V. KOZLOV – KOVALEV
    KVASHA – YASHIN – OVECHKIN, PETROV
    KOVALCHUK – DATSYUK – ZUBRUS, KOVALENKO
    FROLOV – CHUBAROV – AFINOGENOV, AFANASENKOV

    KASPARAITIS – GONCHAR
    TVERDOVSKY – VISHNEVSKI
    KHAVANOV – VOLCHENKOV
    MARKOV – KALININ

    scary how much of a hockey dork i've become... these lines are almost identical to the ones i set up on PS2 (having guessed the Ovechkin line is highly peculiar...they were basically my 'young Dynamo line'.. :)
    and i had Kovalev/Zubrus flip flopped..

    So Datsyuk/Kovalchuk didn´t work that well? It would be a waste not to get the best out of them, maybe they will find eachother eventually, though I didn´t think they played very well toghter in the World Championchip (at least compared to what you would expekt)

    FROLOV – CHUBAROV – AFINOGENOV

    That line looks pretty good. I'm curious to see how Chubarov plays when reunited with Afinogenov.
