Do you see Sidney Crosby becoming a captain of the Olympic team?
We'll wait till we select the coaching staff and then we'll make a decision. Crosby is a young player, and he gets a lot of attention. But the team has enough veterans, experience wise. I have read ESPN's ratings. They interviewed nearly two hundred players and most of them believe that in terms of leadership Jarome Iginla is the best in the league.
Will the Hockey Tournament in Vancouver be carried out on a standard NHL size rinks?
There is no doubt. The main arena is the General Motors Place which is home to Vancouver Canucks. It is physically impossible to widen it up to four meters, which the standard of IIHF.
The perfect Olympics finale is ...
...The one with Canada. There are several historical oppositions including Canada vs. Russia. But I would not detract the importance of the North American derby, when we play against the USA. And Swedes have a lot hockey stars. Some of them are playing in Vancouver. Can you imagine what support they will get?
Which of the players in Team Canada you can compare to the skill and energy of Alexander Ovechkin?
We do not have hockey players who can play like him. Ovechkin is a unique forward.
