08:23 AM ET 08.27 | Though Dynamo Moscow will reportedly make a run at signing Alex Ovechkin in the event of a lockout, not everyone within the organization is thrilled by the prospect. New Dynamo Moscow president Arkady Rotenberg's comments distance the Gagarin Cup champion team from Ovechkin after Dynamo general director Andrei Safronov said the team would "talk with Ovechkin" if there is a lockout. "I'm actually against it. And I don't see any prestige in it," Rotenberg said. "I think that Ovechkin isn't necessary." Rotenberg, a billionaire businessman with links to Russian President Vladimir Putin, hinted that he could be persuaded to bring in Ovechkin by Safronov and coach Oleg Znarok. "I don't know. If they persuade me strongly," he said.
