Zadorov was OK. The Russian team was big on defense and up front, but I thought they looked much slower than in past years. To be honest, they weren't as badly outplayed against Canada as they were against Germany and Sweden. This Russian team was going nowhere from the outset. Next year, it will likely be different, because the 95-born group has depth and quality, but this year's group was not far above relegation quality.
