USA is an offensive minded team with great puck possession, and with defensemen being highly involved in the offence. Russia is more pragmatic and defense oriented team, with D not helping much in the offense. The difference between the two teams' approach is like between Bruce Boudreau's Washington Capitals and Dale Hunter's Washington Capitals. Everyone's production dropped significantly on that team (with an exception of Backstrom and only for a shortened regular season). More telling is how these players do within their respective teams.
