Did Ovechkin, Malkin and the Russians go too far in their behavior? This is actually what some folks on this board are asking. Like it should even be a question. It was really poor sportsmanship the part of the Russians. Why is it that the new crop of young Russians that have come up (but, apparently, not grown up) over the past few years are so much into this kind of thing? None of the older Russains that I can think of ever did this kind of thing. Larionov, Fetisov, Zhamnov? Even Fedorov, whatever he is off the ice, shows sportsmanship on the ice. For the number one draft pick, Ovechkin sure has a lot of growing up to do. Whats up with the fashion-statement visor??? And really, is and empty netter something to taunt the fans and US bench over???
