I know this is way of topic, but figured some of you would care to know or discuss this.
I grew up a Red Wings fan during the time of the Russian Five or the Red Army comprising of Sergei Fedorov, Konstantinov, Kozlov, Larionov, and Fetisov.
I used to love Sergei Fedorov and one time when I got to watch one of the Wings practices before a Michigan vs Michigan State Alumni game at the Joe he gave me a puck off the ice and said thanks for coming out and supporting us.
Looks like his time in the NHL is over.
My most vivid memory of Fedorov was when he shot the puck between the legs of a Washington Capitals D-man and sniped it top shelf over Olaf Kolzig in the Stanley Cup finals.
