Kukla's Korner Hockey

Nyet, Spaceba

from TSN’s Darren Dreger:

Vladislav Tretiak, the president of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, recently submitted a letter to the NHL requesting the use of NHL players in an eight game exhibition series pitting Russia’s best versus Canada’s top players.
While the NHL acknowledges the 1972 Summit Series as one of the most significant events in the history of hockey, it won’t support or approve Tretiak’s interest in bringing it back to life.
Instead, the league would rather focus on an ongoing effort to settle a transfer agreement with Russia, which would align one of hockey’s world powers with the existing group of federations.
