Sergei Fedorov Gets Signed By CSKA Moscow


Sergei Fedorov has just come out with a new signing in the KHL. As the GM of CSKA Moscow, he signed an aging player to his team on a one-year deal. You all know the name, and it will take you by surprise. I know it took me by surprise for sure!

Sergei Fedorov signed Sergei Fedorov to a one-year deal. Yes, you read that right. Take a moment to read it over again if you aren’t sure. He has written up his own contract to play for CSKA. Word is that he is playing to help out while players are injured. I haven’t heard anything about money, but I’m sure it’s a decent paycheck for the Russian star.

It’s funny how I stumbled upon it. On Facebook, as I was scrolling, I read a status from Russian all-star Pavel Datsyuk, who posted about Sergei coming back from retirement. Excitedly thinking he was coming to the NHL, I did a little research. Sadly, he stays in the KHL, but at least he’s back. I want to see what other people say about this when the news comes out.

Fedorov was a good player for the Detroit Red Wings, and I wish he would have stayed with the Detroit organization. But such is life, and he moved on. Now, he’s signing veteran stars to his teams, such as himself. It’s bizarre, but it’s quite funny. With that being said, it brings us to this question. Should Sergei Fedorov play again? I know he isn’t the youngest or the fastest anymore. What if he still had some great stickhandling? We haven’t seen anything like this since Will Ferrell in the movie Semi-Pro, who was the GM, coach, and star player for his basketball team. For fun, I would like to know something. Which GM in the NHL do you think would most likely do this? Here are a few names, and if you choose other, comment who you think would do it below, and make sure you check back in to Too Many Men on the Site to receive your daily news, whether they’re this bizarre or not.

    He is probably saving money this way instead of calling someone up or signing someone else.
