    Why is it stunning? The US has almost 2x the number of registered players.

    Kravstov was really impressive, injured shoulder and all. The guy is tireless, a catalyst on the Russian first line (and even though my heart was set on Dobson during our draft,) I feel good about him moving forward. He is still growing physically and I could see him filling out and being a beast in the NHL. Loved the interview this morning with the Russian coaches.

      He centered the top line during the tournament but based on what I’ve seen so far I prefer him playing on the wing (that’s our greatest need as well).
