Yeah let's go to Russia on a big ice surface and bring a bunch of defensive minded players..we'd get killed. We have to bring speed and skill to the table. Size on a big ice surface isn't as important as being able to make plays. If this was played in Canada or the U.S then it's a different story. You have to look at each tournament differently. This tournament is going to be about which team can out skate the other. I'm glad HC is starting to change their mindset when it comes to tournaments hosted in Europe.
