The Further Plans Of Fedor Fedorov


Fedor Fedorov

After reporting last Friday that Fedor Fedorov was in negotiations with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, but lacking specific information, Sport Express decided to ask Victor Fedorov (father to Sergei and Fedor) what was up with everyone's favorite ex-New York Ranger forward.

Said Victor:

"Though I'm not happy that news of the negotiations leaked to the press, I can say there is, at a minimum, three clubs in the Russian Super League that are interested in Fedor Fedorov. The clubs are all from the Moscow region, and Yaroslavl is one. So far, though, no contract has been signed, and there is nothing concrete. I expect that in several days, we will know more.

"I don't doubt that many fans won't take seriously the possibility of Fedor playing for one of these teams, thinking that he will only sign an insurance contract in order to leverage himself a better deal in the NHL. With all responsibility, I will say that there is no talk of an insurance contract. If Fedor signs a contract with a Super League club, he will definitely stay for the entire season. He is now 25 years old, and it is time at that age to find stability.

"To all of the players who are leaving the Super League in 2006 (Grabovsky, Lisin, Svitov, Khomitsky, and so forth), I wish success to all of them. But if you look at it objectively, almost all of them await teams in the AHL."

I'm going to miss those end to end rushes with the puck, then the skating around the back of the net and then heads towards the half-boards and turns and shoots a weak shot into the shin guards of some d-man.

Priceless.

Choo-choo Charlie is his name.

Yes, I believe Wolf Pack fans have enough Fedor Fedorov memories to last a lifetime.

I bid him well as he goes off to become Choo-Choo Charlie, ready to thrill a whole new generation of Lokomotiv fans.

That is, until he changes his mind mid-season, and decides that he wants to play for Central Army, or St. Petersburg, or some other somewhere.

'Til then, dibs on his Lokomotiv jersey!

The thing is, I always wanted to like Fedor... he just made it so damn hard! So many times with the Canucks/Moose I'd be thinking... "Okay, so NOW he's gonna get it together..."

But then it was another FEDOR CRASH!

He reminds me of some hockey version of Paris Hilton. But with less of a work ethic.

(Best wishes to him, however. But god, he drove me crazy.)

Same here. I was happy when Fedor was brought to New York. I guess I thought that, with his North American career on the line, he'd have the incentive to put up big numbers in the AHL, in the event that he didn't make the Rangers.

What we got, though, was a guy who made pick-up hockey players look talented. Sloppy play, bad penalties because of poor defensive habits, disrupting the offense with his aimless puck-hogging and skating around... it would be hard to imagine someone who could be more useless (though I suppose I could come up with a few, if given enough time).

Still, it's hard not to like the guy. I'm not sure why, either.
