Selectively, there is a lot of talent on the team. Nichushkin is too young to be ground breaking on his own. Yakimov and the rest, are decent prospects- but really NOTHING above and beyond special. Not typical 1st line Russians. The first line should've been Bucnevic Grigorenko and Nichushkin...

But the Team play was absolutely BLOODY terrible and appalling. I have never seen a RUSSIAN team play such a poor passing game. Everyone just standing and watching.. Isn't Parfenov a CSKA guy? What the hell happened, did he forget the ABC's of Russian hockey?! Pass and open up, pass and Move! I couldn't believe the garbage, I'm just pissed
