Alexander Ovechkin confessed that he did not enjoy reading that he was not needed to Moscow Dynamo, but said he was not offended and glad to play hockey for the home club. Here what the said to the Information Agency "R-sport":
"It's not that I was hurt, but it was unpleasant to hear. Every situation is changing for the better or worse, someone could say something, someone would not translate well, so I never take offense at such things. I'm not one of the people who might be offended. I will not hide, I did not like it when I read that the team didn't need me. But now it is in the past, I am in Dynamo."
Ovechkin admitted that he has not yet decided what to do in the case of NHL lockout cancellation.
"It all depends on what the conditions will be in the NHL. If they cut the contract, I got to think should I return or not.Also, Ovechkin said that "it is possible" that he will play in the KHL after this season.
"We'll see, everything will be seen later."
Wow, did he wake up on a wrong side of the bed? Did Maria told him to sleep on a couch? Alright, man, just watch crude oil prices though. If they will go down, so will the KHL. Good luck.
