Looks like Russia will get a strong team.

They already had Kucherov, Malkin, Kovalchuk and Vasilevsky, and now after Washington's elimination Ovechkin, Orlov and Kuznetsov have all agreed to go. That's some star quality.

Remains to be seen if they can assemble all the pieces to a team; that tends to be their weakness.
Lots of great players but no team spirit.

Igor Eronko:

So team Russia will have Ovechkin, Kuznetsov, Malkin, Kucherov, Gusev, Sergachev, Orlov, Zaitsev, Provorov (contract talks pending), Kovalchuk, Kaprizov, Grigorenko, Vasilevskiy, Yakovlev, Sorokin, Georgiev, Nesterov, Lyubushkin and Anisimov in its roster for the #iihfworlds2019
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
