Not to be picky, but look at his name. I'd be surprised if he's *that* estonian, other than in his passport. I'm not that surprised, considering Estonia's large russian minority.

That Russia is so horrible, so selfish that it makes me puke. They would be at relegation round without those superb goalies. There's zero team players on that team, just selfish "me first" -guys. Every scout have just easy job to write those undrafted names off from the next draft lists.

I can't believe Russia is getting that type of officiating playing at home. It is just ridiculous.

I meant it more that it's just not a hockey nation.. so why they have a referee at one of the "biggest" tournaments there is, is beyond me.

Swedish.

He doesn't have a dog in this fight although the winner plays Sweden. Take from that what you will.

At any rate, Russia was supposed to be an offensive powerhouse, but just aren't clicking this tournament. And Swiss team is playing exceptionally well all things considered.

In the first or second shift of the game a Russian player was tripped in a clean breakaway with no penalty being called. From that point on it was known how the reffing in this game would become.

What a stupid poll. Why would a Swiss win be a huge upset? They're both in the quarterfinals for a reason.
