Not that many from Canada will be in the mix.. Russia has quite a few of their best players.. Canada has none of our absolute best (ie.. guys like Crosby, Doughty, Getzlaf ).. and just 3 or 4 of our very good players (Perry, Stamkos, Myers)

This game may be little more than a lesson for Canada's young guys about Russian hockey. An upset is possible but seems very unlikely.
