A couple over reactions in here as to what Canada needs to bring to beat these Russians. News flash...this is not the best Russia will bring to the WJC and obviously it isn't for Canada either.

It's good to see Russia bring closer to an A squad for this than they ever have before. I hope they continue that trend as in the past this tournament has been a joke at times.

Maybe each junior league should ice one complete team for both games instead of split squads. Goalies splitting games is silly. Also, as this is considered somewhat of an evaluation for Team Canada, almost 90 players is a bit excessive. Without split squads, the coaches would still see at least 60 players. That's more than enough. The development camp isn't even that big and this doesn't include college or NHL eligible guys.
