Many times, this subject has come up. Jurco asked for it and quickly changed his mind after being told about the situation. Tatar has liked it. Frk claims to have been at least partially inspired by Sergei's play.
Well, up until recently, I was under the impression that no player would receive it. Most of us assumed that Fedorov was going to at least try and come over to play in the Winter Classic to make amends with old man Ilitch... then this happened:
Sergei Fedorov in Sovietski Sport after Kovalchuk defection to KHL. Fedorov, GM of CSKA, talks of trying to coax other NHL stars to Russia.
Fedorov: "As a manager,I would like to return (Datsyuk) for CSKA and Russa.This is not pomp. Pasha said he has a desire to come to the KHL."— rick westhead (@rwesthead) July 12, 2013
Hmm... not so fast. That doesn't sound very nice now does it? The question I have is, will anyone ever get the #91 again on a Detroit team? It certainly isn't going in the rafters, that's for sure.
What say you?
