Now" (Photo © Elsa/Getty Images) Former Detroit Red Wing Sergei Fedorov sit down for an interview with KHL magazine "Hot Ice", where he talked about his escape in the United States after the USSR collapse and about the adaptation towards a new way of live. But the most interesting part was when he talked about his relationship with Scott Bowman. I understand it now: Scotty Bowman had too many hot potatoes on his hands that he needed to juggle to keep the team successful. But back then, I think North American coaches still hadn't realized that Russians play every game from the heart, that it's not routine.
