NHL stars blast Russia's anti-gay legislation

Quote:
Zetterberg, the Detroit Red Wings captain who will likely represent Sweden in the Olympics, reportedly told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet that the law is "awful, just awful."

"I think that everyone should be able to be themselves," Zetterberg said. "It's unbelievable that it can be this way in this time, especially in a big country like Russia."

Fellow Swedish player Victor Hedman, who plays for the Tampa Bay Lightning, also had strong things to say about the law: "That's completely wrong, we're all humans. No one should have a say in what way you're sexually oriented."
