Ouch, is there a greater insult in 2010 then to refer something as a pantomime?

Russia will be there, Having a Russian team compete serves the interests of Russian hockey, especially if the roster is half KHL. If they end up winning it's probably the best advertisment and validation the KHL could ever hope for, save winning the Olympics.

The stakes aren't as high as the Olympics but it's still a best on best which would eclipse the WCH's and all the intrigue of Chris Mason as a starting goaltender. It would be interesting to see what direction countries are taking their rosters for 2014 as well.
