Fedorov Ready For The Challenge

from the Detroit Free Press,
Gallant said when word spread through the locker room that Fedorov was joining them, some players asked, "Does he really want to come here?" Fedorov insists that he did. In Columbus, he was closer to his parents, who still live in Detroit. He was closer to his off-season home in Bloomfield Hills (he splits his time between there and Miami). And he was familiar with the ways of middle America, even though his new city is dominated by Ohio State football. At a down-home diner north of campus famous for its $5 plates and opinionated locals, a conversation popped up last week about the nascent hockey team. "You hear Sergei Fedorov got traded here?" "Who the hell is Sergei Fedorov?" "A hockey God." "Oh."
