Anaheim Mighty Ducks are a Joke

For a team based on the Disney 'Mighty Ducks' movie series, this just furthers the organization being a joke in my mind. If you go here, you will find Sergei Fedorov's profile on the official site for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. You'll also find a major gaffe on the bottom of the page, in the "personal" section. I quote: "Single�enjoys golf, boating, tennis, travel and music�lists Sergei Makarov as the player he most admired growing up�very active with charities through the Sergei Fedorov Foundation, providing millions to children�s hospitals in both Michigan and Russia�has also provided financial support to college students with scholarships, summer employment, support groups, interaction with other Fedorov Scholars and career counseling�provided $125,000 in hockey equipment to needy children in Moscow�with former Red Army goaltender Vladislav Tretiak, now a consultant with Chicago, Fedorov sent a dialysis machine to Morozov's Children Hospital in Moscow�lists playing with the Russian Five (Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Pavel Datsyuk, Maxim Kuznetsov, Dmitri Bykov) with the Detroit Red Wings as his greatest hockey memory." Sounds like the Disney crew doesn't know much about hockey history, even something this recent. I don't like to nitpick, but the Russian Five was big news in the league. To clarify, the Russian Five consisted of Sergei Federov, Slava Fetisov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Igor Larionov, and Vyacheslav Kozlov.
