The differences are many and complex, but in a nutshell the Russian game puts the emphasis on speed and individual offensive ability. The Canadian game is more hard hitting and played with emotion, but still a high degree of skill.
I've always got the sense that the Russian program featured more practice time during the player's developmental stages and the Canadian program featured more game play. Anybody have any interesting insight on that theory?
