On the one hand, Russians are supposedly terrified of Canada's violent game, but on the other, the Russians are too violent and need to be penalized for it. Those guys are just trying to please the local fans and insure their paycheck. Mike Johnston at least tells it like it is, reports the game as it is actually happening, and gives Russians credit when warranted, instead of prolonging these time-worn myths and legends that are so popular among the Canadian faithful.
