I know this is a reach...but has anyone ever tried former Russian coach Viktor Tikhanov??

I got Tikonhov when he used to come into Pittsburgh in the mid 90's when CSKA and the Pittsburgh Penguins had a working agreement. FYI Tikhonov's grandson who was practically raised in the USA was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes. I have had only a few successes with players in Russia.

He is still alive, you must be thinking of someone else

Tikhonov is still alive, you must be thinking of Anatoli Tarasov who is considered the father of Russian/Soviet hockey.
