Another thing to realize is that Junior hockey in general is EXTREMELY unpredictable, even at U-20 level. A team that can dominate a game 9-1 can go on to loose another game 3-2 to the same team. You see it a lot if you follow any junior league.

So when a bunch of 17 year olds loose 5-0, in adult hockey that would look more like 3-0. What's more important is the type of game they displayed throughout the tournament, which wasn't bad.

Anyway, nothing new- Russian hockey is never as bad as they say it is, and it's not as amazing as some think. Just overreactions.
