Federov is reportedly playing for CSKA Moscow on Friday.

Weird to think he's only the same age as Selanne. This is something I'd like to see.

Fixed the title for you.  

 

I'm sure Feds will skate fine.  Too bad his career went down the tubes once he left the Wings.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I wonder how he will do. Yes, he might be the same age as Selanne (Fedorov will be 44 by years end though) but he did not age as gracefuly. Selanne got better after the 04-05 lockout, Fedorov career went to the craper after the lockout.

 

Still, good luck to ya Fedorov!

When I first read the beginning of the headline of the first article that reported this on twitter, it was something like "Fedorov to take final curtain call..."

I got OVER THE TOP EXCITED thinking he was confirmed for the alumni game.

Needless to say there was some disappointment involved.

A league MVP twenty years ago with 120 points you would've thought that he'd remain a point-per-game for the rest of his career. I wonder what happened.

While not talked about much, I wonder what impact concussions may have had on his production.

What's weird about him only being the same age as Selanne?  He's actually a year older and at this point, Selanne has only played 1 more year than Fedorov...will be 2 after this year.  Fedorov actually played in the NHL until he was 39 and then played a few more years in the KHL after that.

I loved Feds, and was broken-hearted when he left us.   Would be cool to see him skate again, I have no doubt he can still play.

 

Can Dom be far behind?  ;)

I guess since Selanne stayed relevant for longer I just thought Feds was a little older than that. I honestly didn't pay too much attention to the end of his career, so I didn't even realize he just recently stopped playing.

I was wondering about that.  Can he trade himself to another team?  And will he bench himself if he's playing lousy?

Bring him back Kenny. If only for one game. Let him retire as a wing and then put his number up there. 

 

Love Feds. Hope he kicks ass in the KHL.

How the hell can you be the GM and a player at the same time? 

 

I guess anything goes in Mother Russia...  :lol:

Wait....ISN'T he confirmed for the alumni game? I remember reading a bunch of stuff saying he'd be there.

Serious back and elbow issues happened. Back problems were the reason he retired the first time.

Same way as you can be an owner and a player, e.g. Mario Lemieux. I guess anything goes in Mother America...  :lol: :P


I was wondering about that.  Can he trade himself to another team?  And will he bench himself if he's playing lousy?

He was asked about it in a n interview, He joked that Fedorov the GM will put a no trade clause in the Fedorov the player contract. :)
