Well u know what i mean. Its not like im gonna make a list of every Oblast and Republic and then divide them into regions. Volgograd is one of the largest cities in the Southern European part of Russia. The same area/region that Sochi is situated in. Its obvious that these terrorists primary target is something bigger than a bus full of People.

And u russians got my sympathy. Im not bashing russia.

With the deadline approaching I decided to mull over a possible Russian team. Please state any suggestions, changes and opinions.

**Forwards:**

* Ovechkin-Datsyuk-Semin
* Kovalchuk-Anisimov-Radulov
* Kulemin-Malkin-Tarasenko
* Kokarev-Tereshenko-Tikhonov
* Extra: Hard to predict, most likely will be Perezhogin/Popov; I want to see Nichushkin or Mozyakin

**Defense:**

* Markov-Emelin
* Voynov-Tyutin
* Medvedev-Nikulin
* Chudinov-Ryasensky/Belov

**Goalies:**

* Bob; Varlamov; Eremenko

I think Tikhonov looks out of place on the energy line. Popov better.

What about Mozyakin together With Malkin. They played very well together during the lockout.

Coach doesn't like Mozyakin. He won't be there.

Well, the only forgotten player from the NHL is Alexander Semin who definitely should have made the team and I think the vast majority of fans will agree.

There are no other NHL players who should have made the team although I probably would have picked Kulikov. At the same time, an NHLer like Anton Belov has no business being on this roster.

Yes, it's just you.

The only league-biased position is the 3rd goalie. And it's not much of a bad choice over Nabokov and Bryz either.

Good job on the roster prediction a couple days before it was announced. Your prediction is almost perfect with the exceptions of Semin and Chudinov.

Who will replace Radulov? IMO, I don't think Semin should; actually this is where Mozyakin might shine...

In the other roster thread I predicted the entire defense right . And got all but 2 forwards right : Semin & Perezhogin.

Why is everybody already obsessed with replacing Radulov? Stamkos is on the canadian roster for puck's sake! We're over a month away. They all will get well.

So how will the lines look? If Bill said he had plans for Nichushkin, where would he play, I can't see him taking Tarasenko's space on the top 6.

With the addition of Semin, I think that is how the lines will look now.

Ovechkin-Malkin-Semin
Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Radulov
Kulemin-Anisimov-Tarasenko
Kokarev-Tereshenko-Popov (Tikhonov)

Markov-Emelin
Voynov-Belov
Nikulin-Medvedev

Not impressed with the KHL guys. Radulov stupid penalties that costed the team twice, Medvedev with a terrible penalty at the end which almost costed them again, Terschenko absolutely abysmal out there. Tereschenko has poor puck control/turnover machine. If that was a one off game then okay, but wow was he bad and the defensive play, well he didn't rock the PK as advertised. The first goal thats his man that escaped him to score the goal.

Popov looked very good out there, not playing on the greatest line however.

Other than that, most of the players looked ship shape. Even Kovy looks very rusty - passes off the mark, missed a series of shots from wonderful set ups from Datsyuk (those used to be his bread and butter).

I would easily put Svitov in over tereschenko for next game. Would like to see more out of Semin.

The D was solid aside from a few rusty Nikitin clearing attempts. Belov is way better on the big ice.

Popov was excellent, you're right.

Yeah, let's try Tikhonov and Svitov out there. Tereschenko can ride the pine for all I care. Svitov will of course take over his duties on the PK.

Belov had some good shifts, indeed. Nikitin, Medvedev make me nervous, even though both showed good things at times.

Radulov should be banned from Russian NT team forever same as Semin.
Ovechkin seems uninterested to play defense and should be sidelined or benched sometimes same like in 2006 Turino.
( Best part of Ovechkin so far was that deflected nut-shot for referee maked me ROFL a lot )

Nicushkin so far is probably best 2 side forward i ever seen to play for Russia right after Datysuk after long time, good moment was when he grab puck from Kane i think from behind.
Very nice suprise.

I still can`t understand why Biladelunov choose shiet defenceman like Tyutin, Medvedev, Nikitin though.

Where is Zubarev ?

Anyway Yakupov, Panarin, Kulikov should be really tested in IIHF WC 2014 in Belarus.

I agree, those 2 guys are shaky at times, and then sometimes they make a great play. I have watched Nikitin a lot in Columbus and that seems to be the usual, very steady until that one shaky play where he cant clear the puck out of his own zone. Happens every once in a while for him.

Fetisov sounds off on Radulov, ouch. Also, how cheap are those goofy pegs in the nets. They are actually flexible, the most ridiculous thing! Even more ridiculous is the amount of time that the net was sitting like that, the refs should have skated over and adjusted it. Whats even worse was that Quick knocked it off by his own power... I just feel like the Russians were cheated in the worst way on that play.

Overreaction. The defense was excellent. This team is playing well.

This negativity is not sensible.

I hate to say this, but finita la comedia

This is over, probably more devastating loss then Vancouver, at least there was a hope back then - some good games like Vs. Czechs and the loss against Canada still left hopes for Sochi, but now... what's left now?
