I think your statement is as arrogant as those posting that Canada is some unbeatable team, yet Russia pounded them twice just in August.
Please. Canada dominated 3 of the 4 games in the summer series. Russia was clearly the better team and dominant in Game 2, but I can't say the same for Game 3 as they were outshot 42-27 but won 6-5.

I do not agree with those saying Canada is some sort of mythical unbeatable team just because there is a lockout. This is NOT 2005 and people need to stop thinking that. While there is some sick talent, it is not on the same level. Anything can happen in 1-off games. Canada will not steamroll like they did in 2005 and I expect the knockout games to be nail biters.

As to the original topic, with the lockout in place, Canada clearly has the best Top 6 forwards. They don't give out gold medals based on that though.
