I don't know why it's so difficult for you to show some respect
for the great players they produced and the great system (that was emulated by successful NHL teams) they executed.
I respect the Soviet players' skill. I do not respect their actions. On another note, I don't know why you care so much about my opinion.
I think you're just a bitter American who's still hurting over what happened in Sochi. I have a feeling that if it weren't a Canadian who was against the actions of the Soviet teams, your reaction wouldn't be so hostile.
