Fedorov Opts Out Of Olympics

via the AP,
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Sergei Fedorov will not play for Russia in the Turin Olympics Fedorov, a six-time NHL All-Star and former Detroit player who turned 36 on Tuesday, said he needed the time to recuperate from a nagging injury and to adapt to his new team. "I don't think it is appropriate to delay my decision about the Olympics any further," Fedorov said in a statement released through IMG, which handles his business affairs. "As much as I would enjoy representing my country in Italy, I'm afraid that at this point in the season my focus has to remain with the Columbus Blue Jackets."
