When is the last time the ruskies won something internationally?
Canada does produce the best players...and they are the ones that lead thier teams to the Cup every year.
Ruskie players are known for their lack of heart and for being pussies...they only are there for the paycheque...once the playoffs roll around and the stakes are high, they go into hiding...happens all the time.
Funny that shots are made at Canada's skill by one kid who just doesn't have a clue, but no ruskie comes close to the skill and leadership of of Gretzky, Lemieux, Sakic, Yzerman, Messier, Neidermayer, Lecavalier, Crosby, etc. Or wait, they are also talentless goons?
Those guys won (apart from the young Crosby) everything you can win...World Cup, Olympics, Stanley Cup...etc...the rsukie me-first players can only dream of that kind of success.
Funny also that in international play where there is no fighting that the ruskies can't win shit there either now...just lots of excuses and false claims of "we are the best" (actually reminds me of their football NT)
PS How come in Jr hockey Canada always humiliates the ruskies on the way to gold? No fighting there....so whats the excuse?
