Lots of KHLers on the team. Quite unusual for SSS.

well, Varnakov coming from a VHL background doesn't know the product all that well, so he wants to see all the premiere candidates in battle environment, I can understand that.

Two early concerns: Varnakov seems to prefer guys with KHL/AHL experience even if it's minimal and they have 7-8 KHL/VHL games with a few shifts per, what kind of game shape will they be?

He really likes big d-man, both select teams (Subway series and 4-nation) are loaded with humongous d-men. To me it seems Sweden is the team to beat and last year's Bragin-team looked very slow vs. swedes.

Other than that, I think the strongest players are being called up and I see very little questionable names if any.

I think the MAIN strategy behind inviting the best is because the Tournament will be played in Russia and to build chemistry. Winning it, at almost any cost, is very important. That is why all the KHL clubs are willing to let go of their regulars, the league is supporting the U20 team and letting the coaches the freedom to do whatever they want. Last year, for example, most KHL'ers weren't bothered.

Actually I don't have concerns over the choices of KHL/VHL players. VHL players get good to great playing time(Shenfeld, Shalunov, Nichushkin and so on...), and the KHL players are mostly regulars and also get good time (Kosov, Zhafyarov, Khokhlochev). I think the shape should be good. Guys like Kosov would be in even better shape than CHL'ers, since they are used to playing against men. MHL'ers are obviously getting good time too.

I am a bit worried about CHLers targetting Yakupov and other key players, or at least shadowing him too much. They could get injured in a rather meaningless tournament

Good thing is that there are guys like Kosov, Dyblenko, Yakimov who can easily stand up for their teammates.

There aren't any real KHL bench warmers on this team.

Since Ufa has full-scale big ice, I agree that speed and mobility are the most important factors for the D - lack of speed and ability to get to the puck quickly and break out of the zone is what really hurt Russia in Calgary against the Czechs, the Canadians and the Swedes. Forechecking is less effective on big ice, but speed and quickness is a much bigger advantage than size.

Tonight's game is being televised live on NHL Network in the US at 7 p.m. Eastern. I don't know if they will televise all six games, but what better do they have to do?

they should be showing USHL, CHL, ECHL and AHL, instead, i think they are showing old nhl games.

They are showing old NHL games non-stop. But if the opportunity comes to show live games such as the Subway Series that feature players who will be in the NHL as soon as it reconvenes, they will do it. I haven't checked to see if the remaining five games will also be televised, but it is probably likely that more of the Series will be shown.

Game 2 of the Subway Series vs. the QMJHL will also be televised by the NHL Network on Wednesday at 7 pm Eastern. They are also replaying Game 1 in an abbreviated version (without in-between periods, etc.) early Tuesday morning (e.g., 5 a.m.), and a few other times. I suspect they will televise the entire series.

Am I missing something? Is there another thread discussing the Subway Series? Good win by Russia last night, 6-2. Its surprising that a preview of Ufa is taking place in the Subway Series, but people seem to have more interest in the unheard of World Junior A Challenge. It was televised live throughout North America.

The main discussion regarding the SSS is taking place in the thread in the Prospects section of the forum. Plenty of arguing about the usual stuff over there already.
