Great news for Fedor Tyutin as he was named to Russia's Olympic Camp Roster today:
Defencemen: Vitali Atyushov (Metallurg Magnitogorsk, RUS), Vitali Vishnevsky (Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, RUS), Anton Volchenkov (Ottawa Senators, NHL), Sergei Gonchar (Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL), Denis Grebeshkov (Edmonton Oilers, NHL), Alexei Zhitnik (Dynamo Moscow, RUS), Sergei Zubov (Dallas Stars, NHL), Dmitri Kalinin (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Maxim Kondratiev (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Konstantin Korneyev (CSKA Moscow, RUS), Andrei Markov (Montreal Canadiens, NHL), Ilya Nikulin (Ak Bars Kazan, RUS), Vitali Proshkin (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Oleg Tverdovsky (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Fedor Tyutin (Columbus Blue Jackets, NHL).
Tyutin was the only Blue Jacket named. Then again he was the only Russian regular in the Jackets lineup last season.

Speaking of Jackets defensemen the poll is certainly heating up. Commodore is enjoying a slim lead over Jan Hejda with plenty of time left to vote.
For the record my vote went to our potential Russian Olympian.
...and please, somebody out there show Marc Methot some love!
