As for Dryden I have no problem with him and generally respect his hocky opinions though not always. For example his saying the Soviets were more 'gentlemen like' then Canadians just sounds to me like the pandering of a politician.
As someone who is neither Canadian or Russian, I would have to agree with Mr. Dryden's take.
