And you know this because youve seen every other player on team russia and know them well? Lets be objective here, you probably only have heard of just a few of them and seen even less play.
I really do trust Kravchuck, he looks for a lot of intangibles and he has worked with these kids and knows them better than any of us. Im not saying Goldobin isnt a good player, but the impression im getting is that there are other kids who bring what is needed for is team, while goldobin wouldnt to the same extent.
There is no conspiracy here so dont start one, just coaches preference
