Ok I don't quite realise why your having a go at me.... In case you didn't realise I think the Russian team and public are confident that they can win at the Olympics (which isn't the World Championships and as of yet, they haven't won an Olympic Gold). I understand you are in Russia watching the NHL but I was simply trying to say, as you mentioned, Russia has their own league, which I'm sure more people are focused on that the NHL. As for the UK we don't even have a half-decent league, so instead of watching it here, a lot more people watch the NHL.

I think Russia will challange, never said otherwise. All I said was this is probably a reporter trying to relay how well players like Dats are doing to those back in Russia.

I meant we watching the NHL. Yea, we have our own KHL but we must watch NHL, because you know - AO, D, EM, IK, ...

So, why these ratings? I think there is nof****** sense to read about Dats or AO - everyone know they're awesome players. But we want to hear authoritative opinion about such non-star russians like Frolov or Lisin.

No they don't. Canada will always have the deepest talent pool to draw from. That is one of their greatest strengths and weaknesses.

Russia brings everyone. Canada has to choose who stays home.

Think about it. Out of Crosby, Savard, Thornton, Vinny, Cater, and Getzlaf, there is really only 4 spots available. Realistically speaking, Crosby, Thornton and Vinny are locks if they are willing. So it's really 1 spot from the other 3 guys.

Russia won't have the chance to leave talent like that off the team.

Do you know that not all russians playing in NHL? I think yes.
Do you think every european talent moves to America?
How many non-NHL russians you know?

So, you can't talk about 'deepest talent pool'. Right?

When I said 'currently the best national team' I meant 'current world champion'. I think it's objective.

Wouldn't suprise me, since a lot of people in Russia are probably not aware of much that's going on in NHL

Bulls***. I think there is much more russians who's aware 'what's going on in NHL' than in UK.

their press are probably trying to say "Our team is better this time around".

For what? Currently Russia is the best national team.
