The Nurse( for Snapshot ) has found his voice. ))

http://www.thescore.com/nhl/articles/12 ... -the-blame

I’m satisfied with my time in America and I learned a lot there, but it’s still a foreign country where the way they treat you is completely different to Russia. They do try to get the best out of you, but then again, you always get the blame if even the slightest thing goes wrong


Aleskey Morozov quote! Barely remember him saying much as a player.
There is some truth in his quote. NOT the always part, but some truth.

*i didn't see in hockey related or in pens; all apologies if posted. 8-)

Boo hoo "I can't handle being paid millions and in turn having my game scrutinized."

Morozov is becoming, if not already, the number 1 spokesperson for luring players back to the homeland. His comments are propaganda.

I don't care how much money you make, nobody likes to be scrutinized by random people. Even if it comes with the territory.

I never got that sentiment.

I can make millions in one place and have every little thing scrutinized on the other side of the planet or make millions in another place, live near home, and fall under less scrutiny. Let me meditate on that. :pop:

Maybe it's just my perspective, but I love everything about playing hockey. If I was making $30k a year to play, I wouldn't give a crap what anyone said; I'd be in heaven. Throw a few more zeros in there and it become more ludicrous in my mind.

That, as a professional athlete, if he can't handle the part of a dream coming true where fans have occasional negative feedback, he's a wuss?

In terms of professional hockey players, sure. He's avoiding the higher level of competition because of what some of the millions of fans say. Mentally, he's a wuss.

Indeed, and it's probably not. But he could certainly hack it over here. If it's family and home, I'd take that too. But don't say it's basically because people expect your best every night over here. That's how it comes across to me.

Is the same Alexei/Aleksey who went ten weeks (34 games) in his final NHL season without scoring a goal? That's the guy who wants to chirp about not being treated fairly in America?

I don't care if you're a 4th liner, an AHL/NHL tweener, or a top player for one of the worst NHL teams in the last decade, you will be blamed if you do not score for almost half a season....and it has nothing to do with your birthplace.

Morozov is considered one of the best hockey players in the world currently not playing in the National Hockey League.

That is the one and only. Like mario, scored on his first shift-shot.
The comparison stops... except when playing the NJD. :P

I view Morozov like he was the second coming of Naslund, except we kept him instead of trading him. Who knows how well he could have done elsewhere in the NHL, but as a European scorer he was expected to put up numbers that we were used to. He didn't score enough and so we hated him. He isn't physically gifted like Mario, Jagr, Malkin, or Crosby are, so maybe he just wasn't cut for the NHL. Never thought he deserved the hate everyone seems so willing to bestow upon him though.

I really don't understand how anyone could insult Morozov's decision.

He played in the NHL, he played in Russia... He was more happy in Russia, he stayed in Russia

Seems fine with me

Just to play "Devils advocate":

Is the level of competition the same in both places?

If I'm a professional, I want to play against the best.

The thought that there's no criticism in the KHL is just :roll: (Not that *you* personally are saying that)

Additionally, I kind of like knowing that when I get on a plane it's going to get to its destination. :)
