I went to the Colisee on Monday to see them, it was awesome.

Russia won't win because of shaky goaltending.

They might have a chance. Ovechkin, Semin, Radu woaahhh.

But their goaltending is weak as hell.

So, 4 games in 5 days

Bring back the nordiques baby. I want hockey. more, more and more.

Russia has a scary line up.

Apparently the ice at the Colisee is horrible. Wonder how they will fix that.

Biryukov - 2.54 GAA
Varlamov - 2.45 GAA

Those are stats I found this season for those two. No save percentages though. Both in the RSL.

For Alexander Yeremenko, I could only find stats from 2005-2006, when he posted a 2.01 GAA and .900 SV%.

You are going to see why Korneev is not only our best defensive "prospect" (even though he'll probably never come over).. but one of the best defenseman in all of Russia. The guy is a stud.

Canada's yeah.

Russia and USA are similar.

Korneev = Martin
Kalinin = Gleason
Grebeskov = Gilbert
Ballard = Markov

Those guys are all pretty sturdy and equal.

The rest on both teams are guys I don't know or #5-7 guys, respectively.

Seems that Finland has kept a spot for our Saku....

From Cyberpresse, Belarussia have spots for Grabovski and both Kostys....

Damn. I can't wait to see Russia va Italia tomorrow. It's going to be a goalfest.
I'm wondering what the lines will be for Russia. Does anyone know ?

Last winter, I went to Ottawa to see Wsh vs Ott and it was the best game I've ever saw. Ovechkin finished the game with 4 goals and 1 assist.

I hope he will show no mercy against Italia.

They definitely have some decent goalies .. probably not as strong as Canada.. but they aren't going to be pushovers.

Canada plays their first game today against Slovenia (game at 3:20 EST I believe). I think Canada's top two lines will be:

Speeza-Staal-St.Louis
Nash-Getzlaf-Heatley

Gonna be pretty tough to stop that. Speed, size and skill.

Maybe we could just make this the World Championship thread or something.

Yes, having Heatley and Spezza in the lineup is kind of a turn off, but i'll still probably cheer for Canada. Toews, Green, Burns etc.

Meh, they are wearing the Maple Leaf now. I'll hate them again when they put the Senator jersey back on but for now they are my Canadian brothers
