Kukla's Korner Hockey

The real Sergei Fedorov never showed up in Orange County. The guy who played sporadically here for one brief season plus five games, the same injury-prone multi-millionaire who was shipped to Columbus for a couple of no-names and a few dozen hockey pucks to be named later Tuesday, was a faint facsimile of the six-time All-Star who dominated the game in Detroit. When he got here, Fedorov no longer had his famous wife of two years, Anna Kournikova, or most of the impressive skills he flashed on the ice for the Red Wings. What the Ducks got, instead, was Sergei-lite. Still talented enough to lead the team with a modest 65 points in 2003-04, but hardly an energized superstar worthy of a $6million contract in hockey's new salary-cap-conscious landscape.
