The Ontario referees deserve credit for the win, and I'm sure they'll be duly rewarded.

My guess, there will be a lot more players from the Quebec league than from Ontario at the WJC. The Quebec league was significantly faster, more skilled, and much better finishers than the guys from Ontario. The guys from Ontario were bigger and got in a few more hits, but that tactic is very counterproductive on a large ice surface, especially if you're not that fast. It will be interesting to see whether the Western League is better than Ontario.
QMJHL top lin in second game will be the best line put together in all these games, including whatever Russia put together.. Other than that line the q didnt have much at all. Agreed OHL didnt look great but they very well should have won both games and id call you ignorant if you think otherwise.
also GTFO out with reffing bologna, you cant not call delay of game shots over boards and blatant trips on the puck carrier. Russia was out gunned out hustled and out performed
