Milan Lucic won the fight with Jackman tonight.

Chara scored but otherwise sucked, especialy 3rd was his fault. Bruins lost 1:4 to Blues

Since the fall of the Soviet Union lets face it Russia has done jack sh*t

Here's the results for the world championship which is played ever summer. Usually B team players show up.

Since 91 and the break up of the Soviet Union they have won it once in 93. Canada has won it 5 times, Sweden 4, Czech Republic 5, Slovakia 2, Finland 1.

Great Job

The World Cup of Hockey is a major tounrnament held every eight years. Russia has never won it. USA won it in 96 and Canada won it in 04. Russia's best finish was making the semi's

Great Job


Since NHLers have started to play in the Olympics starting in 98. Russia's best finish has been 2nd. Canada, Sweden and the Czech's have all won.

Great Job


So let's recap since the break up of the Soviet Union and international competitions have begun to use NHLer's. Russia has won exactly one competition the 93 World Championship a tournament people could care less about. Going by results which is the only barometer that matters Russia has done nothing.:rollani:

How does the commentators at FSN Pittsburgh describe Milan Lucic?

"He looks like a serbian Rick Tocchet who's 19 and continues to grow and grow"



I hope he isn't criminal though

Canadian hockey is good. Imagine where it would be if forced/implented with Soviet factory style play. No other country would register on the hockey map.

Many people seek after what they do not possess and are thus enslaved by the very things they want to acquire...because "precondition of that subjunctive". - Ivica LeFondre

If his career wasn't cut short by injuries and cancer... i honestly think he would've been the best player of all time!

guy who scored 5 in one game after long 11 years deserves to be a star of the Week, even if he was -25 in the rest of games

Hey, CB, sshhhh, lets not post facts like this. p

Great post. Shows you how inept the ruskies are internationally now.
And dont forget, when the playoffs roll around its the ruskies that go into hiding...but hey, the money is good, and they can live in California and Florida where the weather is nice...who cares about the playoffs anyways.:smileani:

Lets talk some real Eastern European powerhouses.

Croatia.

Here's some standings from the World Junior Championship Division II and III.

The winner of this group would join with Germany, Austria and some other bigger squads in division IB.

Group A Div. II
http://www.iihf.com/channels/iihf-wo...ship/home.html
Croatia finished third beating world powers China, Mexico and Spain. On a good note the Croatian goalkeeper was voted best in the tournament and we spanked the Chinese 12-2:thmbupToo bad the Dutch lit us up 8-0). I'm sure he faced an on slaught at times.

Group B Div II
http://www.iihf.com/channels/iihf-wo...ship/home.html


Division III WJC will be in Serbia this year world powers like Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Amrenia and Bulgaria. Hey you didn't make the Euro's but trying to get into division II junior hockey would be a great consolation suprise.

This tournament will be held from Janurary 16-23. To the Serbs over there should go watch the sport. It really is a great sport to watch. (Maybe not at this low a level ) but nonethess it's great to watch

Another one Dominik Kanaet plays for HK Dubnica, he´s 16.


Aren´t these boys too young for playing U20 Tournament ?

Milan Lučić with a good game against Carolina Hurricanes, he scored one point (An assist), but the Bruins lost in the end.

Used his body really well as he always does

4 goals =+ 1 assist for Ovechkin tonight, Alex now has twice as many goals as Sidney Crosby for the season. Kovalchuk scored as well and the only two players in the NHL with 30 or more goals this season are Russian! Yea baby!

the Russian language surpasses all the others of Europe, not only in the breadth of territory over which it rules, but also in its own extent and wealth

Noone cares about junior hockey here, Czechs won it 5:2 and Slovkaia was sent to the relegations. Mostly of media ignoring this event.

Worlds is another story
