Which important Russians were missing in the WC this year? Kovalchuk is the only one. Ovi, Semin, Datsyuk, Malkin were all there. Americans missing? Callahan, Brown, QUICK, Parise, Stepan, Kreider (they both played in last WC) Canada had the same problem. Winning the WC doesn't mean your style is the best. I can argue that Canadians and Americans play the best style, because those were the finalist teams in 2010. While this wouldn't be the only way of looking at it, at least Olympic rosters are full. Half of the US and Canada teams won't be college or junior players, that's for certain.
