Who, Mozyakin or Tereschenko? They're both career KHLers with Russian National Team pedigrees at the senior level.

Crazy to think it took us 50 years in between Olympic wins against the Big Red Machine.

Then again, doesn't really count best vs. best competitions in between Squaw Valley and Vancouver.

Russian coaches are notorious for not guaranteeing a spot to anyone while at the same time stroking the stars' egos. Olympics is 2 years away bro. I can guess at roster locks but surely not lines.

One thing is certain however. Crosby should be well-rested before sochi coming off his concussion.

Stamkos, Giroux, Toews, Staals, Spezza, Bergeron, Getzlaf, RNH, Seguin, Couture, etc ... Crosby's health might not even end up mattering all that much, which is a relief.

Meh. He's not an expert or anything, but he produces good-looking fan-blog content. That's approximately 5000% more than any other casual fan that I know. It's good filler if you are crazy for anything hockey-related. I hope he monetizes it successfully or stays with the same formula in the mainstream.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

oops, forgot Tavares, M.Richards, Carter, Duchene, O'Reilly, Henrique, Couturier, Sutter, etc, and very outside chance that guys like Schenn, Johansen, Huberdeau, Strome, Scheifele, MacKinnon, etc could get there...

and that's just centerzzz!

If I were coaching Team Canada in 2014 I'd play Crosby on D so that way he can get 35 minutes of ice time per game
