Nash and Fluery can be VERY important for team Canada, way more than guys like Stall, Horton, Crosby.

No way Shafigulin, Malkin, Zherdev, Kazionov, Mirnov, Anshakov, Glazachev, Pestunov weaker than Stall, Horton and Crosby. Russia simply has more depth in my opinion.
Fleury (1st Overall)---in NHL
Staal (2nd Overall)---in NHL
Horton (3rd Overall)---in NHL
Zherdev (4th Overall)
Coburn (8th Overall)
Phaneuf (9th Overall)
Carter (11th Overall)
Seabrook (14th Overall)
Bernier (16th Overall)
Fehr (18th Overall)
Getzlaf (19th Overall)
Burns (20th Overall)---in NHL
Pouliot (22nd Overall)
Richards (23rd Overall)
Stewart (25th Overall)
Tambellini (27th Overall)
Perry (28th Overall)
Belle (30th Overall)
Glazachev (35th Overall)
Klein (37th Overall)
Pushkaryo (44th Overall)
Bergeron (45th Overall)---in NHL

More depth? I guess Russia does if you only mention 3 of Canada's players.
