Yes they sucked vs Canada, but so too did Russia's "NHL superstars".
I thought they looked awful vs the Czech Republic too. They looked like they were skating in mud compared to NHL stars, clearly not used to the speed and level of play of the best players in the world. I don't know; maybe they dominated the lesser teams earlier, but I was very unimpressed by the level of play in the KHL after watching them.
Ovechkin, Malkin, etc stunk against Canada too, but they didn't look like they didn't belong on the same ice surface.
Do the KHLers dominate the World Championships like the best Soviets did before the fall of the Iron Curtain?
