Come on !

point 1 ! ok. although ufa is not tropical (in tropical areas you generally have significant risk) ... I'll say ok. to save the honour of the highly esteemed HC.
But 2 and 3 ... pasta, meat, fish ... and a team of 25 guys lost in a country were no one except personnel in the hotel, the other teams, TV ... remembers a bit of home ??
with Facebook, skype, twitter ... whatever voip app carying your voice ... !

In any case, kudos for standing up for Hockey Canada in such a condition ...
