    The outcome of the game probably depends on whether the officials let Canada play Canadian hockey, or if they force the players to play basketball rules (touch = foul) which would heavily favour the Russians.

    I sincerely hope we don't get a Canadian or American ref...
    Purely for the fact that I'm absolutely TIRED of hearing people blame the outcome of the game on biased officiating.

    I wouldn't say there is any bias. You obviously can't have a Canadian or Russian ref in the game. It all comes down to style. A officiating crew from Europe that is used to officiating the Euro style of hockey will probably be bad news for Canada. Same goes the other way. An officiating crew that is used to reffing NA style hockey will probably hurt the Russians as they are not as used to playing that style.

    Less than 1 hour before the puck drops and no one knows who is reffing yet?!?

    As far as I know Kurmann from the Swiss League I wouldn't say that Kurmann is good for Russia.

    Switzerland? I can´t believe an important hockey tournament is going to be officiated by a Swiss referee. The IIHF is idiotic. I think Canada, Russia and whoever wants to join them should pull out of this tournament. I mean look at the attendance it´s obvious to me that the IIHF is run by a team of cheque-cashing monkeys.

    I don't think that nationality of referee is comparable with how good the ref is.
