Overhype of Canada may well be it's undoing. My strong advice to some Canadians is to tame down and start soft-pedaling their Olympic team as underdogs rather than make such over confident predictions. Russia's poised to win gold and Canada runs the risk of falling prey to complacency and its reluctance to face up to facts. Or another scenario- Canada simply burns out, overburdened with responsibility.
PS Russia won not one but two straight WCs. Don't forget that and don't play it down.
