nope. But the fact you mention something like that is a good example of the expectations he has to face by now.

It's just a calmness of the experience. There is whole tournament still ahead. Nothing to cheer about hard yet. Heck, it's Kovalchuk scoring a goal. It's like Datsyuk would cheer every time he takes the puck away from somebody. Radulov on the other hand is just a different type. He's always emotional. No matter if it's a good or a bad thing to do. But that's what he is.

by the way, on iihf.com they say that the goal was waived off because Rankel kicked it in.. as sad as it is, i can't remember the goal exactly, but i'm pretty sure the refs waived off because 'hoff was lying in the zone..

And he will get the confidence while the tournament goes on. You can't expect a guy who was stuck in the AHL at the beginning of the season and now centers the NT first line to be comfortable with that right away. It's a very important learning experience for Lokti.

Radulov is going to track your IP address and he'll go after you.

Germany was at least equal if not better than Russia. It was much closer than one can guess after a look at the result.

The difference was the Radulov-Kovalchuk line. Kovalchuk just used his chances, the Germans didn't. Moreover, the game should've been tied at 2 but the refs didn't count the goal (still don't know why, since Anisimov pushed Ehrhoff into Varlamov).

I'm really happy about Germany playing that well, I finally think they can do something in this tournament.

There was no kick in at all. Just Ehrhoff lying on Varlamov's head at the time of the shot.

Not so sure about that. We have seen it in the past, they look good against the big nations (but still lose) and then might stink it up against more or less equal nations like Norway, Austria etc.

That said they look good out there and I don't think we will face relegation this year. But I will wait for the first game against an opponent on our level before I get my hopes up.

Thanks.. Still, someone was lying on Ehrhoff aswell after he was pushed into Varlamov.. So, tough call, but doesn't change anything.
Great game by both teams. Maybe we can beat a few teams if they keep playing like this, but i won't jinx it, germany has proved too many times that they keep up with the big nations, just to get crushed by the "underdogs"

Ok, you are homerish. Believe me Russia was better, not blowout better but it was obvious they had a gear or two left. Russia controlled the game easily until the 2-1. That got them a little bit off balance. But that's it.

Also the goal was disallowed correctly. Goaltender has to be allowed to make the save in the crease. Hard to do with a player lying on your head. And it wasn't much of a push by Anisimov. Watch the replay.

Yeah i know. But his face after scoring that goal and looking at Radulov was like "uh, just stop that you're embarassing us"

Why in thw world you got rid of Krupp? He was the only coach who built up some kind of a good system there.

Finland apologizes for Aleksi Rantala. One of the worst refs in SM-Liiga but I guess he's good at kissing ***** to get to officiate at the Worlds...

Believe me, they are good buddies off the ice. Radu isn't the smartest guy on Earth, but he's always straight forward and a funny guy. Besides it all doesn't matter on the ice really. He's a talented hockey player, not some blue collar blue blood scientist, so I don't expect him to act overly smart in every situation.

Would be nice if he had Datsyuk's manners. But it just doesn't work that way.

He's coaching my team, the Cologne Sharks now, and the national association wouldn't let him coach both the club, and the national team.

Now we have Cortina, who is coaching the national team....
...and EHC Munich.

There were questionable calls/non-calls on both sides. Kinda evened it out...

I was puzzled as to why the goal didn't count, seems like Anisimov pushed Erhoff into Varlamov...Not sure on the specifics of this situation...
