I'm guessing they didn't watch the WJC. The play was absolutely fantastic with hitting all over the place (some hard, you can just ask the Czech player the Phaneauf sent into next week) to go along with the speed and skill on display.

Not saying this has anything to do with Euro hockey as the Mentality and skill set is different over there.
