"Putting people through end boards", somehow doesn't win games
Against Russia it most certainly does. If Canada comes out in Game 1 and plays physically like they should, they can have the Russian players checked out of the entire series before the first game is even over. I'm sorry if this sounds insulting to your players, but this is my view supported by watching Canada/Russia junior games for my entire life.
Obviously Russians or those cheering for Russia would not agree with me. Nor should I expect you to. I tried to be respectful in stating my respect for Russian hockey and that the views were just how I see the series playing out. Obviously I did not do a good enough job since you look forward to me "eating my words". We shall see. I'll tell you this, when there is any Junior hockey event with no NHL to remove players from Canada's roster, the results are undeniable.
You cheer for Russia. I'll cheer for Canada. I have a feeling it's going to be a rough 4 games for you in every sense of the word.
