In any case, it'll be hard to convince anyone that Tomas Plekanecs, Andrei Kostsityn, Sergei Kostsityn and Mark Streit want to win the Stanely Cup more than Mike Richards, Scottie Upshall, Jeff Carter, and Jason Smith.

Once again, this is not about race or ethnicity (sp?) It's about the expectations that you grew up with.
Simply stating this doesn't make it fact. It's a total non sequitur to suggest that Canadian players want to win the Cup more than their Russian or European counterparts, simply because they happen to have been born in Canada.

How are you quantifying their respective desires to win the Cup? Why would Plekanec, the K Bros and Streit be playing in the NHL if their ultimate goal wasn't to win a cup?
