I think people are really looking too much into this. Who wouldn't love to represent their country? Kovy is from Russia, and it's his right to represent his country in the WHC. You guys easily forget how he was dedicated last year and how he played well and with heart in the playoffs (he played games injured fyi). Kovy is a devil. This is team. He will be back next year with the goal of going in the playoffs and winning it all. So no, you should'nt worry.
Ohhh well, that game is all on Lundqvist. Played a really strong game, and hedberg let in one softie that made the difference. The Devils offence was good. If only Hedberg made the key save. Can't wait for Brodeur to come back. Liked Elias's game, he is a key player to this team, he has to re-sign this summer. Clarkson with the useless shot once in a while as always.
