Are you kidding me man, he is only leading because Germans had completely cracked, anyone would win that game, if it would be russia it would be 10 goals to Malkin. How can you compare him to a mediocre player from Norway. Malkin is like the best player right now

Looks like the Canada game is getting a replay on TSN2 @ 7:30pm Mountian.

Glad they decided this game was actually worthy of a replay on one of their stinkin' channels.

I think the odds are something like this:
CAN-SVK 80/20
RUS-NOR 90/10
FIN-USA 45/55
SWE-CZE 70/30

Go CZE I have a gut feeling we're gonna make it next round.

Wasnt aware some goals counted more than others, and some points arent worth as much as other
As far as I know, Russia and Malkin played the same nations as Norway and Thoresen.

And yeah some goals are much better then the ones scored on luck and lack of focus of other teams
