Then Phil, why aren't you? Of course it is a big accomplishment, and it will be a big accomplishment by Alexander Ovechkin when years from now he breaks those records.

If that is how you feel about the World Championships, then quite honestly you and I don't have a discussion. We see things so differently that we don't even have a starting point. If by the way World Championships count for naught, I'm not sure why Larionov is there or Tretiak, or why Makarov is currently under consideration. -added note, Slovakia was not able to use NHL players in the Olympics until Turin Italy in 2006 so that minimizes Bondra's impact as an Olympian.
