Google for Firsov, Maltsev, Krutov and Bykov

by

Google search for Soviet hockey players. Interestingly enough the qrodo blog show up in top 5

The current Qrodo release is named after Valerij Charlamov. Charlamov is a real legend in Soviet hockey. He was very creative and unpredictable on the ice. Relatively small, but one of the major attractions in the game of hockey when he played. He had impressive skating and stick handling skills. Not only was he a fast skater, he could constantly change gears and direction.

Who would you like to see naming the release thereafter? Who is your favorite? We have used Firsov, Maltsev, Krutov and Bykov earlier.

The first line of CCCP in Canada Cup 1987 with Aleksej Kasatonov, Vjatjeslav Fetisov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Krutov and Sergej Makarov must be the best line ever? The second line during these dominating years with Bykov, Chomutov och Kamensky was fantastic, but my second all-time line is of course Valerij Charlamov, Vladimir Petrov and Boris Michailov that ruled the rink in Summit Games and World Cups of 1970s. The real striker; during 15 years in the CCCP-jersey was Alexander Maltsev with 213 goals. The first Qrodo release was named after Anatolij Firsov who played in the Soviet team from 1962–1972. He is probably the first non Swedish player that I picked as my favorite in the Stockholm world championship in 1970. From that era we have forgotten the big defenseman Alexander Ragulin.

    Vsevolod Mikhailovich Bobrov was a Soviet athlete, who excelled in both football, bandy, and ice hockey. Bobrov began playing hockey for CSKA a year after his football start, in 1946. His playing career in this sport lasted until 1957, with the years between 1950 and 1953 spent with VVS. Although football was Bobrov’s first sport, his success in hockey was even greater. In the Soviet Championship, that his teams won seven times, Vsevolod scored an amazing 254 goals in only 130 games.

    What about the goal tenders? Viktor Konovalenko and Vladislav Tretiak are missing in the list. Konovalenko led the Soviet team to the World Championships title every year from 1963 to 1968, 1970, and 1971. Tretiak was the goaltender in the Soviet team from 1972-1984 and is considered one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of ice hockey. He was voted one of six players to the International Ice Hockey Federation’s (IIHF) Team of the Century in a poll conducted by a group of 56 experts from 16 countries. First non-North American trained player to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame
