from Capitals Insider,
I’m hearing that Ovechkin and Semin joined Team Russia last night, but Ovechkin is still waiting for insurance on his 13-year, $124 million contract. Insurance for Ovechkin’s contract might cost the Russian Hockey Federation as much as $800,000. The Russians have said they will pay, but Ovechkin is contractually prohibited from going on the ice until coverage is in place.
from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
In addition to Ovechkin, the list includes Sergei Fedorov, Alexander Semin, Maxim Afinogenov, Ilya Kovalchuk, Denis Grebeshkov, Dmitri Kalinin and Alexander Radulov.
Kovalchuk, Afinogenov, Kalinin and Grebeshkov were on the ice against the Swiss last night.
The Russians who weren’t dressed, according to a Hockey Canada observer at the game, were “enjoying hot dogs and poutine in the stands.”
