wow. who would have thought it that after just a few years this roster would be absurd. the mentions of such current and former nhl players as Filatov, Frolov, Grachev and Loktionov are truly mindblowing
There are just so many possibilities that it's almost impossible to predict with any degree of certainty right now. For example, if Anisimov is playing good- do you take him? Or the Tereshenko who is proven? Or how will Tarasenko, Burmistrov develop. Will they be better than Kuznetsov. What if Yakupov explodes- do you take him or Zherdev. What about Popov and Perezhogin?? They are outstanding this tournament..
Obviously, Ovi and the gang are expected to be the backbone, but after them it's actually quiet difficult..
It's all up in the air, for me. Way too many variables and too many things can change.
