Well sure, how many best on best tournaments have their been outside of their continent?
Are you talking about the world championships(and I use that term with the biggest grain of salt imaginable) and the past olympics where we always had to send kids to play your pros?
Please, don't insult our intelligence.

My prognosis is that they will lose because of the inferior defense (since the last great Russian defenseman was Markov). I don't think Malkin can score at the pace greater than Tyutin and Nikulin will be letting their forwards get away from them. I don't think Canada will win though.
