This line up looks substantially tougher and more physical than anything the Russians have seen previous in this series.
Paid more attention to this tournament than I have in previous years...mainly due to the lockout I suppose, but didnt realize this was only for Canadian players in the junior leagues.
Stoked to see Leivo play again. I really liked what I saw from him last game; I'd like to see him carry the puck a bit more and show a bit more intensity. His board work was really solid though. Good two-way player.
