Tretiak: I have no doubt Russia would have crushed Canada as well

Tretiak is stirring up stuff here's his latest interview to Sport Express

- That was a great victory! Russia is the best in the international hockey Right now. In six years we have 3 golds, a silver and a bronze. Who else has such a collection? And the 10 wins in this tourney. We only had that in Soviet era and even then not every time.

- how are you going to remember this team?

- the champs with golden medals around their necks! A unified force! I look back at this tourney and I don't really see any team that could have beaten us. Closer to the end, we gained an unstoppable momentum, even if we had to play Canada in the finals, I have no doubt we would have crushed them as well.

Come on, you have to be blatantly ignorant not to know a tourney where stars such as Spezza, Tavares, Ward etc participate

Or you have to be ignorant to think that a tournament that has an undrafted player instead of players like Sidney Crosby or Steven Stamkos means anything to us.....

Considering the rosters, this doesn't seem like much of a bold statement.
