If anything, especially looking at game 1, koharski favoured the soviets because he was fearful of being tagged a homer.
he was definitely the anti-dombrowski. But, hey, don't let the truth get in the way of a good yarn (or whine).
Its not only Russians with this opinion, actually very far from it. And if someone thinks as such, it doesn't mean that they're 'anti-Canadian', 'disparaging Canada's victory' or 'whining'.
In fact, it's interesting to see how non-Russians and non-Canadians view this series because these people are less prone to having bias...they have little vested interest in the outcome.
