As I wrote in a previous post, HC has sent teams to Ufa before, 2007 albeit it was summer summit series, but I think they are at HC familiar with Ufa for what it is and isn't.... It was a pretty moronic statement for the coach to say if in fact he did say it... I know they are playing some pre-tourny games in Finland, whether it's northern Finland he was referring to, who knows... maybe the journalist has a beef with the coach and wants to make him look like an idiot...job well done... who knows what goes on in these kinds of scrums.... totally stupid thing to say though..and if HC actually has lamps to take the Ufa, then HC is even dumber than their coach....

I was going to say one of the U18 IIHF championships was recently played in Ufa, but that was Kazan. Nevertheless HC should be familiar with that neck of the words.

BTW I've been to Ufa 3 times. and it is a nice city.
