Russians Courting Brashear?

via daylife.com

[Quo Vadis, Don? I found this interesting news article in today's issue of Sovietsky Sport, and given what we know of the Caps' enforcer's recent language lessons, perhaps the feeling is mutual.]

The leadership of Vityaz Chekhov has decided to strengthen their line of tough-guys and is seriously considering the possibility of obtaining Donald Brashear, one of the most powerful in the entire history of the NHL.

The 37-year-old Brashear spent last year with the Washington Capitals, where he guarded Capitals stars Alexander Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Sergei Fedorov. In 63 games during the regular season the tough-guy racked up 4 (3+1) points and 121 PIMs. In four playoff games he has an even plus/minus, having spent 18 minutes in the penalty box.

Brashear has played in 1,049 career NHL games, having played for Montreal, Vancouver and Philadelphia, and has racked up 2, 682 penalty minutes.

Canadian Chris Simon, another elite NHL fighter, will also continue to play for Vityaz.
