The Canadians haven't beaten the Russians in the WJC since 2009, and even then, a shootout on home ice. It will be interesting to see if Dumba can make a difference in helping Canada to get back on the winning track. Do you think Dumba will make the team for the WJC in Ufa this year?

Everybody knows 1994 is a bad generation. I don't know why more 1995s weren't taken.

-1995 Nichushkin has everything you'd want in a player.
-Slepyshev was good...expected more though.
-Zharkov has some real talent but just doesn't produce...frustrating player
-Yakimov is huge and is good around the net. His skating needs MAJOR work though.
-Osnovin plays a solid 2-way game....needs to get stronger.
-Barabanov and Filippov have nice skills, but nothing groundbreaking.
-Kamaev was a total diappointment.
-1995 D-man Zadorov has all the tools to be really great...he impressed.
-After his U-20 performance, Vasilevsky was underwhelming.

Zadorov was OK. The Russian team was big on defense and up front, but I thought they looked much slower than in past years. To be honest, they weren't as badly outplayed against Canada as they were against Germany and Sweden. This Russian team was going nowhere from the outset. Next year, it will likely be different, because the 95-born group has depth and quality, but this year's group was not far above relegation quality.

Selectively, there is a lot of talent on the team. Nichushkin is too young to be ground breaking on his own. Yakimov and the rest, are decent prospects- but really NOTHING above and beyond special. Not typical 1st line Russians. The first line should've been Bucnevic Grigorenko and Nichushkin...

But the Team play was absolutely BLOODY terrible and appalling. I have never seen a RUSSIAN team play such a poor passing game. Everyone just standing and watching.. Isn't Parfenov a CSKA guy? What the hell happened, did he forget the ABC's of Russian hockey?! Pass and open up, pass and Move! I couldn't believe the garbage, I'm just pissed

Forming a concrete idea on a player from the WC-18 would seem somewhat rash, so inspite of a supposedly poor showing from Vasilevsky, he still remains a high end Goalie prospect. 4 or 5 games will have very little meaning in the context of his career, and he remains very promising.

I've heard about the supposedly excellent 95 generation. May you expand on their abilities please? Im aware of several, Nichuskin, Barbashev, Buchnevich, Tolchinsky and Zadarov (Is Nikolishin a 96?), but are there are any other names to watch out for and how do the names listed compare to recent Russian age groups? Are of the players listed closely matched talent wise to Kuznetsov, Tarasenko, Grigorenko or Yakupov?

Am I correct that the next U18 Coach coming down the pipeline is Sayurkov. He's also nothing special from what I've seen.

I can't believe Belyaletdinov and the FHR don't put the hammer down on this U18 ********. How many more years of this?

Can't wait for the Ivan Hlinka in August. By the sounds of it every country is talking of their 95 age group. Now I know why people say the 2013 NHL draft could be one of the best ever. It's extremely loaded up front in all parts of the world. The World Juniors for 2013-2015 are going to be amazing lol.

Canada- Mackinnon, Reinhart, Lazar, Duclair, Drouin
Russia - Buchnevic, Tolchinsky, Nichushkin, Barbashev
Sweden- Burakovsky, Wallmark, De La Rose
Finland - Barkov, Lehkonen, Ikonen
USA - Erne, Cammarata, Compher

Huh? In Buffalo, in 2011, Canada beat Russia in the Round Robin 6 - 3 (if I recall).
