Last I checked, Bob Nicholson did not take the results with a grain of salt and Hockey Canada was seriously disappointed in the current run. Their current international form is indisputably bad at WC. And I don't mean it's not impressive, but it's actually BAD. How could the"Best Hockey Country in the World" allow this? hmm.
Actually, Czech golden team from 2010 was more KHL-based than Russia.
