it's hard to compare the junior leagues based on this tournament, for example american team has practiced for just a few days, while Avangard was practicing for like a month if not more. The ages are very different, while the swedes have the majority of 17 y.o. Omsk features a few 20 y.o. and barely any 17y.o. The difference in time between Omsk and the Saints is 12 hours, Ontario is also the same ball-park (too lazy to check). This is just a funky preseason tournament, all there's to it. Many American kids come from u18 league, while some kids from Omsk have KHL experience.
