I would be actually interested to see the best canadian team outside of the NHL. There are some good players in the KHL, in other european leagues, maybe add some juniors, and maybe some AHLers if that's possible (probably not I guess), but definitely a team not without a chance to win. It would be hilarious

Canada would still have a good shot at a medal with just European players. I think people are overestimating Russia as being able to waltz right through the tournament. The only team that would sink dramatically would be the Americans. They would go from gold medal threat to probably below Switzerland and only above Norway, Germany and Slovenia

Agreed, they won't waltz through. This is not the 1970's or 80's anymore. The playing field is more level now, they will have a tough time winning even with all KHL players.
