1. Very silly to call people who dedicate whole life to hockey and hockey being their only source of income "amateurs".

2. So if we take, lets say, Nashville and put them against Canada's all-stars, Nashville should win coz they have been playing with each other for ages?

3. Some reasons why Russians "put such good fights": much superior passing game, much better skating, better skills.

Who do think Belfour's mentor was? It was Tretiak. Tretiak is a major reason why Belfour has had the career that he has had.

Tretiak was not allowed to play in the NHL because of a communist totalitarian government. He dominated European hockey at a greater level than Dominick Hasek did, and I would say that Hasek had some success in the NHL. Also, Hasek was coached by Tretiak. He was a great athlete and a great goaltending intellectual.

Forsberg chose to wear #21 cause of fellow Swede BORJE SALMING who wore that number for the Toronto Maple Leafs

47 Stephan Lebeau (at least he had one 80-point season)

63 Josef Vasicek (is there many others?)

81 Miroslav Satan (I don't think there's much competition

about 51, I think John MacLean wore that in one of his late-career teams.
