All Sergei Fedorov

from Szymon Szemberg of IIHF.com,

IIHF.com met Fyodorov in the picturesque Swiss town of Sursee where he was accompanying CSKA Moscow to their training camp which included four games in five days against Swiss league clubs.

Sergei, you look in great shape. Could you still play?   

I’d like to play. Could I? That’s the question. Fortunately I got an offer to become General Manager of CSKA Moscow and I say ‘fortunately’ as I had a back injury when I played for Metallurg Magnitogorsk and it didn’t allow me to play the way I still could. So yes, I would want to play, but from the health standpoint it wouldn’t be a wise thing to do. So now I have moved on.

One of the most frequent trivia questions in hockey is “Who was the first European player to win the NHL’s MVP honors”. Does it make you proud?

Today, this is all at the back of my mind. I am very busy with my current job, with the team. But looking back, it was good season. I thought I played well, I didn’t think I played that great. But I played a lot, 28-29 minutes per game as a forward, so I guess I must have had a good season.

Why does he always bring this up? Always. It’s his go-to excuse for not having great seasons thereafter.  Is that why he loafed a lot after that? He wanted more minutes? Don’t loaf on shifts = we’ll give you more minutes. If he had yzermans head to go along with that talent, he’d be unstoppable. I believe ted lindsay said that also.
