Imagine if they had put Thoresen on a line with Mårtensson and Weinhandl. 70 points all around?

Are we talking sarcasm here ? Well Thoresen got 66 points in his 2nd season with ufa, so why not But thats never gonna happen, because Weinhandl moved back to Sweden

The SKA coach wants Thoresen to play center, because he is good defensively. So its not expected of him to score that much

It is not a shot to the NHL's ego because no one in the NHL cares. They really don't. Neither to Canadians or Americans.

This thread symbolizes the great divide

Some thoughts upon reading this:

1. Eastern Europe is mostly used in a political and cultural sense, that is Central european countries geographically speaking are correctly called Eastern european many times. The same goes for a country like Romania that has a different language root than slavic languages.

2. Mr. Kanadensisk homerism is exponentially increasing. To call USA a better hockey nation than Sweden or Russia is farcical, no one denies they do good every year but they are not as good simply because they don't win.

About the commentator thing-i think next season khl-tv will launch a channel that will have english speaking commentators (if im not mistaken) so maybe you`ll have a chance to enjoy some khl hockey and understand what the guy is saying in the commentator booth it should be avaible where you live too-norway

The winning team definitely didn't have any NHL players. They're best players definitely weren't all NHLers.

I can only guess that you are refering to the USA at the World Championships. Without knowing anything about you I can tell you are probably a huge fan of the WC, and good for you, like what you like. However your suggestion that the results from this tournament are in any way meaningful in determining whether Sweden or Russia are "better" hockey nations than the US tells me you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

Uh, Olympics is the same format. So why draw any conclusions from that either?

7 game series is just for making more money anyway.

Even europe has those now unfortunately.
