There have been some absurd rumors floating around Russia that former Capital Sergei Fedorov is considering a comeback at age 43. While that is about as likely as the Redskins changing their name, Fedorov has been skating with the team he is the general manager of, the KHL’s CSKA Moscow, every now and then. Wednesday was one of those instances.
Russian journalist/funny man Alexey Shevchenko photographed Fedorov’s sweaty gear in the locker room and instagrammed the following sarcastic comment: “Sergei Fedorov’s workplace. Peak of offseason preparation. I’ll remind you that this year SE [Sport-Express] said he will play. In the KHL. Play in the KHL.”
What I’m more interested in, however, is in the middle of the photo. Fedorov still uses his #91 Capitals bag from Washington. He appears to have left DC with different feelings than Alex Semin.
By way, Semin came to RCI with a Caps equipment bag. Told a friend from D.C. that he could take it and burn it.
