The Russians are probably the favourite to win it in Vancouver 2010 too. I mean that roster's gonna have the 3 Hart finalists. :O

Well Russia is now ranked #1 so they should be considered favorites. Canada has home ice advantage so that will be a factor. Most Russians will be from NHL teams so the smaller ice surface shouldn't make that much difference.


I'm getting pysched up for the tournament already!

And would you name the B and C level tournaments? Just check Kovalchuk's reaction this year and Oechkin's dances from the last year, maybe then you'd be able to understand what this tournament means for the Russian stars.
