Russian top 6 is still very solid.

The difference between the 2010 and the upcoming is that instead of the aging Morozovs, Kozlovs and Fedorovs we'll have a younger more dynamic 3rd and 4th with the likes of Anisimov, Kuznetsov maybe Tarasenko and some really quality checkers in the likes of Tereschenko.

The defensive system for big ice has worked magic in WC where the team conceded very very few goals.

The Goalies are as good as ever for Russia.

I'm simply saying that it'll be a very competitive team to say the least. IMO, better than 2010 on paper, and most certainly better tactics/coaching wise.
