And correct me if I'm wrong, but the Russian team was an all star team while the CHL is divided into 3 league all star teams... This despite Moscow being 1/3 the size of the entire country of Canada....
Yes, I'll correct you. The Russian team was made up of MHL Selects, key and best players were not there. So it was a good team, but not an all-star team. In the end, a lot of the players from SSS did not make the WJC squad.
