"8 years ago owners got everything they wanted... They feel comfortable and think they will win again."

Pretty good read. The chances of a season starting on time seem really slim though. One cool thing is that there might be a chance Kovy chooses to play for Lokomotiv if there is a lockout. That would be such a class act thing to do.

This doesn't sound terribly optimistic.

Good for Kovy standing up for his players despite already having his money set until he retires

If Kovy played for Lokomotiv, he would rival Elias for my favorite player.

Matter to Kovalchuk and other big contract players more than anyone. With another 25% rollback, Kovy loses $25M. Although I'm sure VBK wouldn't mind that.

All depends what's in the new CBA.

It always amazes me how you guys find some of this stuff. Although these pics look like the Drago training camp before he fought Apollo Creed, not Rocky in the woods running through the snow to the top of some non-descript Siberian Hill while escaping 2 KGB agents in a Mercedes with chains on the tires.

I was thinking team Canada vs the soviet army team, early russian plyometric training and the Tretiak goalie drills in the 1970s. nice rust on the olympic bar threads
