Yeah. I don't think any country could produce talent like Hossa, Gaborik, Chara, Halak, etc. and 2-3 NHL draft picks each year from only 140 players

Team is playing like garbage, awful puck-hoggery, bad readable passes, zero patience. Relegation round, here we come.

They're dominating IMO, goals will come. You sound like some old grandpa who watches hockey like once a year clearly don't understand the gameplan

Well they have been struggling to produce elite talent recently, but yes a 140 U18 players would be something like Romania

Oh man, SKA Vs CSKA in 30 minutes. That will be an incredible match. Might just watch the second period of this and move into KHL for the rest of the night.

Just started watching but I wouldn't worry about Russia. Last few years they haven't dominated weaker competition as much as one would think.
