I think CBC watches the Russians with a very critical eye. Like a Dad. There is such a fascination with especially Ovechkin in the Canadian broadcasts. They show fans of Ovie seeking autographs before the game and highlight him in the introductions. Semin has constant attention paid to him also, not just because he's Russian, but because he can be that dangerous.

The obsession is out of respect and admiration actually. We all know how exceptional players like Ovie and Semin can be. When they don't deliver it's a big let down and the criticism is gonna flow. Which I guess it should.
