    Ovechkin

    If Ovechkin makes the team, should he play on number one line with Fedorov? Samsonov-Fedorov-Ovechkin? Kovalchuck should not be on the number one line, he is to selfish.
     
  3. Well, I seemingly can't make up my mind about the Russian roster, as it seems to change a little every day.

    But as of right now, this is who I would personally name:


    Forwards:
    Sergei Samsonov - Sergei Fedorov - Alexei Kovalev
    Ilya Kovalchuk - Pavel Datsyuk - Pavel Bure
    Andrei Nikolishin - Alexei Yashin - Alexander Mogilny
    Alexander Ovechkin - Alexei Zhamnov - Valeri Bure
    EXTRAS : Sergei Brylin, Vyacheslav Kozlov, Victor Kozlov

    Defensemen:
    Sergei Gonchar - Daniil Markov
    Darius Kasparaitis - Sergei Zubov
    Alexei Zhitnik - Dmitri Yushkevich
    EXTRAS : Oleg Tverdovsky, Dmitri Kalinin

    Goaltenders:
    Nikolai Khabibulin
    Evgeni Nabokov
    EXTRAS: Ilya Bryzgalov

    have people been hearing if pavel bure is going to be back and healthy?
     

  6. I heard him say that he would like to resume skating in June.

    And if that is the case, then I would name him now in anticipation for August.

    If he isn't ready to go by then, you can always name a replacement.

    he also said he would be very surprised if he was named to the team, and says there's a very, very small chance of him being ready to play. :(

    Why don't people read older threads?

    This topic has been discussed here already 10 times!!!

    Many people gave their thoughts and rosters.

    Anyway it will be announced early tomorrow, so there's nothing to discuss.

    With two Bruins on the roster and me being Russian I might as well be rooting for team Russia. ;)

    I hope Gonchar's shoulder will be ready by the time Cup games start.

    Go USA! Go Russia! :handclap:

    Here are 4 players we'll see on tomorrow's list :

    Ovechkin
    Frolov
    Sokolov
    Tverdovsky

    And probably another player from the superleague, Kovalenko or Sushinski.
