Well what's the projected lines?

I'd say Zharkov in a non offensive role is a bad idea.

Nicushkin I don't see being a great grinder. Good going to the net, everywhere else he's underwhelming.

The only spot I think Russia has us beat is at 2nd line center, but Mackinnon has outplayed Grigorenko in the past.

I have visions of mackinnon taking that spot from Strome as the tournament goes on anyways.

Man for man Canada's team is as deep/better.

Vasilevski may or may not be better than Subban, we've seen Subban out play him before.
