The European top nations have lost so many even games to Canada. People tend to forget those games in the end of the tournaments after Canada have won once again. We will once again here they boast how much better they are compared to us almost for no reason at all. When a game is ballancing on the edge who is going to win, one should remember they are equals at that stage in a game. It is our turn to win now and we deserve to win.
Lets hope we can export the wonderful European hockey tradition to our continents minor hockey nations. We (Russia, Finland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Sweden) deserve to serve as an example for you. Begin to employ coaches from the established European hockey nations for your club and national teams. They deserve such an offer - since they are the best icehockey trainers in the world. Canada has never been the best in everything as allways they claim otherwise. But are you enough humble for such a gift?
