Anatoly Tarasov never gets his due. The man invented a new style of hockey. While the Canadians and the rest of the world were playing hockey in straight lines with the focus being on the man with the puck, Tarasov saw Hockey in multiple dimensions with the 4 players without the puck being the focus of play. I will be forever disappointed that KHL chose to name its trophy after an astronaut rather than the father of Russian hockey. Such a travesty.
