No not all Europeans are small but on average theyre a lot more skinny and brought up in a much less physical brand of hockey than Canadians. Even the finns who I know play physical hockey are not physical to a level to compete physically with North American teams.

This hasnt really been stressed enough. Canada has Carey Price who I consider elite and will be hopefully the starter in Sochi. But Luongo is old and on the down side of his career, after that there isnt much talent. MAF is not that good, hes an average starter.

I think Malcolm Subban might have it though. Hes really impressed when I've watched him. Canada usually needs a goalie who makes the saves he has to and they can win, I think Subban can do that
