from Greg Wyshynski aka Puck Daddy,
Just so we’re clear: Dmitry Chesnokov has translated this interview from Igor Arkhipov of Sovetsky Sport, but did not conduct it.
Questions and comments from Sovetsky Sport are in bold; Kovalchuk’s translated answers follow. We edited out a few clunkers and Russian-specific questions.
What if players in the NHL start speak critically about each other, what will happen in the NHL?
“Semin didn’t just start talking about Crosby. He was asked a question by one of your reporters… You know, players here are frequently asked about who is better Gretzky or Lemieux. It is virtually in every interview. One can make a big deal out of this too. Let’s say you pick Lemieux. And what’s next? Will you be blamed for not liking Gretzky?
