Don't play stupid. The Caps are loaded with allegedly high value prospects and many of them (Ovechkin, Backstrom, Johansson, Carlson, Alzner etc) have played in that tournament. It hasn't translated to any kind of success at the NHL level has it? This year it looks like they may not even wait til the playoffs to bomb, considering how badly the team is underachieving overall.

Bah....
This was widely known weaker russian squad compared to last year. I believe they only had a couple of returnees so it was a young one. Sounds like the angst is more about the big club performance to date so not sure how that applies to Kuznetsov as a prospect.
