Just wondering if you know what you're talking about?...or just making a blanket statement based on stereotype? Who is this 'Russian brass'? Who makes these decisions? What relation do they have to the FHR? KHL? Russian olympic committee? Do these individuals (individual) have a history of doing such things?
Is it really that difficult a concept to grasp? If the best you two can do is question my "Russian brass" terminology then this discussion is going nowhere. Tell you what..if you don't like my comments, then illuminate me as to why the coach would give such a flimsy excuse when he could have just said he had the mix of players he wanted already. Neither you nor Fulcrum has bothered to address that yet, and it's my only problem with your commentary.
The bottom line is I don't care nearly as much about this as the both of you do. I'm simply looking forward to seeing Tarasenko play in person.
