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


He was confirmed for the original alumni game when it was supposed to take place last year. The lockout took a s*** on everybody, and now we don't know if he'll be playing this year.

Cool, it's true he lost a step if not several after the lockout but it's not like he had much help. Lots of years wasted away on bad Blue Jacket teams and he still scored a huge game 7 goal for the Caps before he left.

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.

 

What happened?  He went on to win 3 Stanley Cups, that's what happened.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

He was dominant in his last couple of international tournaments. I think it was 08 when they won the gold and Feds was on another level, just brilliant.

He didn't lose the ability to play.

I would take him back in a heart beat. I believe he would still probably be more useful then a few guys we currently chose to play... Even if not I wouldn't even care I was just be happy to see Fedorov again.

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. :)

 

what if player feds agrees to waive his ntc D:


Datsyukian

Dat·syu·ki·an [dat-soo-kee-uh n]

adjective

          1. When your moves are so amazing and beyond reason, the only way to describe them is "datsyukian."

He'll just have to buy the other team and OwnerFeds will tell the GM not to trade PlayerFeds.

I bet he's still quick as hell, and you never lose that release.
He could still be in the top six, imo the only problem is, he was the scorer pav and hank were meant to set up.
Which is why he was decent in Washington and bad in cbj.
Scotty was the end to the dead wings, so I assume hes a mad genius.
But he definitely lost a step.
Still, would love to see us make a trade of some weight and be able to sign or trade for him.
He'd be a slower starter but assuming everyone else steps up while he got up to speed on the top line, hell be dangerous come playoffs.
Then he could retire at the end of the seaaon, with another ring and he can get #91 retired.

Horribly.unrealistic.
But i can dream.

-but I don't see anyone else gettingthat number, do you?

Any word on the contract?
Let me be first: overpayment.

He is the gm, so I doubt it, he's making his money.
So Unless hes been working out like mad, or is caught blood doping it'll be pittance.

Or he's punch drunk and is overpaying for a gimmick.

If Fedorov could still play, he'd still be playing. He left the NHL for a reason. He was a star 20 years ago, not any more. What he's doing is trying to get publicity for his struggling team.

It would be fun to see him on a line with Datsuk. Or see him take Samulesonn's spot. I think he could fill a simmilar role as a Powar Play speciallisttt. He still haz gass inn tha tanc.

@dchesnokov: Victor Fedorov, Russian hockey coach, father of Sergei Fedorov and Fedor Fedorov, passed away today in Russia.

Didn't want to start a new thread, but thought this warranted posting.

*sending good vibes to the Fedorov fam*
