Hello, Los Angeles’ fans.
I’ll start with small introduction. I live in Russia, in Chelyabinsk – the city, where Slava Voynov was born. At the same time, I’m working as a journalist and my specialization is foreign press and fans’ opinion. That’s why I want to know what you think about rising Russian star.
You know, mayor of our city claimed that “Traktor” will try to sign a new contract with Voynov during the offseason. He personally will give a decent sum of money to sponsor the deal. So, the question is following: Is it at all possible? How do you think Slava will behave? (I suppose you know him better, as you are closer. Maybe here I can even find some insiders from Kings’ club) If he leaves, will you consider it as a big loss? And can you describe his contribution to the team’s play, how valuable is he for you?
As for my attitude, I think he shouldn’t come back. To my mind, he is doing well in NHL and it isn’t worth wasting such a chance. For me – maybe because I’m too patriotic – Slava is better than Doughty. There in LA he has even better chance to go to Sochi than in KHL team.
