Primarily, I am looking for information on how the USSR chose and trained their hockey players in the middle to late 20th century and how players defecting to the NHL affected their hockey programs.
I have a lot of information on the list you gave me, but isn't bandy a lot like field hockey on ice?
Look through the History of Hockey forum many people there would be quite ebullient in discussing Soviet hockey.
