loosing to a swindler and in online casino are quite different, don't you think?
And this affects his ability to play hockey, how???
Sound like you have personal issues with him, more than his ability to play hockey.
Edit: Fedorov lost over $40 million to a crooked investor. Is he an idiot? Possibly. Did it affect his ability to play the game? Not nearly as much as aging and injuries did.
what is affecting his ability to play hockey is his age, not being an idiot. But being an idiot may and probably will affect a locker room atmosphere.
