Well, it did really look like the Russian player spat at him. It was a split second thing so I might be wrong.

yeah he did. It was Lemtuygov that got hit, then in the replay it showed him get up and spit right in Phaneuf's face. Im actually VERY surprised that Phaneuf shrugged it off

He's pretty good actually. He was peppered in the last 2 games. What were the combined shots? 90-25?

Russell's goal should have been stopped but under the circumstances he played pretty well.

Pretty disappointed with the biased officiating towards Canada throughout the tourney.

The temptation to take his head off must have been huge. He was very disciplined. I would have liked to see if they shaked hands after the game.

To tell you the truth, I don't know how I would react to this. Phaneuf keeps on impressing me. He's improving by leaps and bounds and the areas where I felt he had slight question marks before the 2003 draft are getting really strong. He carried himself like a real captain tonight.

Yeah, he definetaly spat right in his face. I was impressed he just didn't do more about, they had something to say to each other later in the game however, after Lemtyugov hit Phaneuf from behind.

I was impressed alot by Shawn Belle, he's come a long way since draft day '03 IMO.

My 2 cents

Ladd is more rounded than I thought...
Eric Fehr has a wicked shot....
Phaneuf should be in the NHL right now...
Chipchura is going to be a great grinder in the NHL....

he may be playing his last few games of junior - if the Player's Association proposal works and the season is salvaged, the odds are that he will be in Calgary. He is playing like this every night now and is a man among boys most of the time.

Yah he had like no icetime. I think i counted about three short shifts a period for him. Hard to impress or be seen much when yur not given much a chance. Why was he on the starting lineup and not given much icetime.

Shawn Belle was also good back on the point, Barker didn't do much. Phaneuf was good as usual. Fehr is great. Brule was very dissapointing, other than his huge hit early he faded away.

Brule has been playing with the Flu for the last week. He definitely wasn't himself. Had a good first period with the HIT, but faded later. The flu caught up with him. He is ill and yet Brule himself never mentioned his illness to anyone with the team
or in any interviews. Get well soon so we can see the real Brule.

Chipchura's one of the most underrated picks of his draft class. In a few years, people will look back, and fans will say 'why didn't we draft this guy?'.
