    Here is the roster of 1985 born players for Canada at the 2003 U18 IIHF World Championships where Canada also took home Gold. Remember most of these players were selected from non-playoff CHL clubs. Canada went 5 - 1 - 1 in the tourney and claimed Gold over teams like Russia, who included Ovechkin and Malkin.

    In face to face game Russia beat Canada 6-3. Russia had very smallish roster but big rink helped them to overcome it. Interesting that Russia beat USA with the same score 6-3 while Canada and USA tied 1-1 in 3 periods (then Canada won in OT).

    I think while being very confident these Canadian players have some problems with assignment of the power through the whole game versus serious opponent because seems they are fading to the end of the game because of phisical tiredness (that causes mistakes) or rising psychological presure, not sure.
    Some examples: letting from Russia 4 or 5 goals in the 3rd period at U18 2003, also at U18 tieing with Chech while totally dominating first half of the game and leading 3-0 and the last example is losing advantage at 3rd at the last U20 worlds. I think big rinks that will be at the WJC won't be a help for this big heavy guys.
    As Kovalev said after coming to RSL: "It's needed another pair of legs to skate at such rinks". ;)

    PS: Russia will have about 7 players from U18 2003: Ovechkin, Malkin, Pervyshin, Glazachev, Shafigulin, Pestunov, Belov.

    This really gives me alot more hope for Jamie Tardif, maybe this guy does have a legit NHL chance after all, even being considered for a team like that is impressive.
