Alexei Kasatonov Named Russian Hockey Boss For Sochi 2014

The Russians have finally named their manager for the 2014 Olympic men's hockey team.

Alexei Kasatonov, one of the all time great Russian defenseman, has taken the job. You would think it would be most pressured packed job in Russia. After all, the games are in Sochi, and there are great expectations winning the gold medal at home in the Winter Olympic's most prestigious event.

But the Russians are doing things a bit differently. Kasatonov has already placed the pressure on the incumbent national team head coach - Zinetula Bilyaletdinov.

"My job," explained Kasatonov "would be to talk to players, including those from the NHL, but the head coach will always have the final word."

Here's the full story.
