Monday Morning Hockey Talk

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

- If Alex Ovechkin ever thought of hiking off to the KHL down the road, it could land with the Moscow Dynamo, for whom he’s an adviser. The club is owned by billionaire Arkady Rotenberg, who used to spar at judo with Russian president Vladimir Putin when they were kids.

- I’m going to miss TSN’s Ray Ferraro between the benches next NHL season now that Sportsnet’s got the broadcast rights. He’s the best in the business. I keep thinking he should be on an NHL management-team train, with his smarts. Ferraro tells a nice story about why Pavel Datsyuk is who he is. “(Son) Landon was at his first Detroit camp and he got on the same team as Pav,” said Ferraro, who played almost 1100 NHL games. “The way the Wings work it is they break into three groups and two play a game and the other works out in the gym and practices. Landon was taking off his equipment one day after not playing a game and he sees Pav doing the same, then putting on his gym stuff. Pav doesn’t look at Landon as he walks by, but Landon sees him and immediately puts on his gym stuff too. That’s the definition of a pro.”
