It seems Russia sent a team to gel, where Canada used it as a prospect feeler.
Neither is a bad idea, but to say it is proof Russia is now superior is laughable.
No one among Russia fans claimed that Russia is superior. As I go back over the posts, I don't find a single one alleging that Russia is Number 1. This is a "what have you done for me lately" World, and superiority is in the here and now. Canada has a chance to demonstrate to demonstrate superiority by going undefeated in Ufa, and winning each game by a large margin (6 or 7 goals). Merely winning and superiority are radically different concepts. If Canada wins the Gold Medal game by one goal, they have failed to demonstrate superiority.
